democracy & demockracy
Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate for president and her running mate, Cheri Honkala, were arrested last night after sitting down in the doorway of the building where the presidential debates were going on.
Even though they're on the ballot in 85 percent of the states, the Green Candidates were frozen out of the debate by the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Demolican and Republicrat Parties -- and they don't want no competition.
Stein told the police and crowd, “The American people deserve to hear choices which are not bought and paid for by multinational corporations and Wall Street. This is why we are not hearing the critical issues in this debate.”
Well, I wanna know what's wrong with the choices that are bought and paid for. I mean, you can choose either Coke or Pepsi...it's not like anybody's telling you which one you have to pick.
And it's the same with this election. After all, we are free to choose between Obama and Romney, which is the great thing about this country -- having that freedom to choose.
So just please go somewhere and listen to your rock or your country -- whichever one you like better -- and don't bother us any more with your complaining that the American people are so far down the rabbit hole that they've lost sight of what real choice actually is.
