someone else had my same line of thinking i see… :D
If you’re gonna buy my vote, I might as well just give it to you directly.
Unfortunately, this is the present unprincipled, cowardly, and extremely immoral state of politics in America. To vote for Obama is COMPLETELY dismissive of third world peoples who he has authorized, endorsed and supported the murder of. Shame on those who decide to vote for a drone-strike trigger-happy, civil-liberty-smashing monster because they’d rather have their imperial party of exploitation and oppression beat the less-pleasant imperial party of exploitation and oppression in America. It seriously turns my stomach.
Well fucking put, Josh. <3
The irony of allegedly progressive political activists that scream “follow the money” on a regular basis but fail to notice the overflowing pockets of the Obama administration never gets old. Or better yet, the failure to recognize that both Obama and Romney are funded largely from the same interests -the interests of Goldman Sachs and big financial institutions responsible for not only the global economic meltdown four years ago (in which no one was held accountable but were offered numerous open positions within the Obama administration), but are also responsible for the economic collapse coming our way, one that the U.S. (or any country for that matter) won’t be able to escape.
If you’re really going to “follow the money”, you need to follow the flow of global capital. You need to understand that the Eurozone crisis is our crisis. 2008 exposed an extremely weak global financial system that, despite anything reported by the media or elites, has been weakening ever since and is now on the cusp of complete collapse. It then becomes increasingly clear why our two-party political system is wholly corrupted by financial elites. It is a struggle to retain power during the decline of the American empire through the collapse of the global capitalist system.
Your role as a citizen, not only of this country but of this world, in order to oppose and actively work against austerity, poverty, injustice, and tyrannical power, then becomes to actively work outside of and against this political structure. Stop focusing so much energy and time on this coming election. All that matters is that you go into the voting booth, vote for a third party to show your dissent, and then get back into the streets. Voting in this election is not about “winning” or giving a submissive vote to a party that has “real chances” or “clout.” Voting is a tactic. It can be a form of a resistance. It can be used to give yourself a voice in a political structure designed to silence you and submit you to the status quo of the global financial elites.
working from within the system doesn’t change it, it changes you.

How Americans don’t realize America is one of, if not the, biggest terrorist group in the world is beyond me. But sure, let’s blame the Muslims.
equating terrorism with religious fundamentalism gives foreign policy a foundation of power to ruthlessly kill an entire group of people at will, with no transparency, accountability, or conscience.
it also allows President Obama to expand the definition of “militant” to quite literally mean all military-age males in a designated strike zone, with no regard or care as to who these males might be, in order to reduce the number of reported civilian casualties to zero every time he blindly orders a drone strike in countries he does not even have the explicit approval from Congress to be in a military conflict with.
american imperalism/authoritarianism at its finest.
