A government Of The People, By The People, and For The People
The People wanted the Public Option, The People STILL want a Public Option, but The people can’t have a Public Option. Why not, if this is A government Of The People, By The People, and For The People? One word…..
Back room deals, “campaign contributions,” lobbyists and the members of Congress who serve them, and an entrenched Status Quo that was and is designed to serve The Corporations….NOT The People.
A Status Quo and a way of “doing business” that we were promised would “Change” if a certain candidate got elected. The same candidate who promised transparency and open government is the candidate that made the backroom deals that determined and ensured that HCR would be for, of and by the The Corporations.
And thus, indisputably AGAINST The People.
Corrupt Senators, Corrupt House members, a corrupt system. In both Parties. At all levels. And a White House that instead of “Changing” that system, at the very LEAST plays along with it.
The People have spoken loud and clear what they want. The Politicians and Corporations have said a flat blank NO. And are not even doing much to attempt to cover up or even obfuscate or obscure WHY the People can’t get what The People have unmistakeably told their government they want.
Bald, brazen, and in your face.
YOUR government is corrupt, and no one in power seems to have any idea or intention of doing anything about it. After all it is all “legal.” The fact that the very same people who are so corrupt wrote the laws that makes their corruption “legal” is just the ridiculous icing on the absurd cake that We The People are being told to eat.
And what is the cherry of lunacy on top of this farce of a cake?
That the response to it all is not to root out the corrupt, not to join together as one to use People Power to take our government back from the corrupt cowards, not to use the tools we have to Yell Louder to Change the System as we were promised….
But that instead those tools are being used to try to burn at the stake anyone who DOES try to find a way to change it.
In their zeal to protect one politician from criticism, a segment of the blogosphere has decide that THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO DO….
Is attack…a blogger.
Not attacking the system, not the exposing and rooting out the corruption of the system, not protesting the the fact that we no longer have a government of, by and for The People but a government wholly bought to act against the interests of The People. No that would make sense, that would be the right thing to do, the constructive thing to do, the thing that NEEDS to be done.
The very thing that people Power and Internet activism was MADE to do.
Instead all of the Power of that tool has been trained on a single target with the am of smearing and destroying …
If i was a republican, what would I want the vast and demonstrated power of the (once) Liberal blogs to do to neuter their effectiveness?
Why, gosh I would want them to do …..EXACTLY what they are doing right now.
