An allegory in four parts
The power of the Enemy is growing. The corporations will use their puppets, the Republicans, the media, and the Blue Dog corporatists and centrists, to enslave the people of America. Fascism has been unleashed. The eye of the corporations now turn to the last free people of America. Their war on this country will come swiftly. They sense the ring is close. The strength of the Democrats is failing. In their hearts, progressives being to understand, the quest will claim their freedom — all their freedom. It was the risk we all took.
In the gathering dark the will of the Ring grows strong. It works hard now to find its way back into the hands of Congressmen. Congressmen who are so easily seduced by its power. The young Captain of America has now but to extend his hand, take the Ring for his own, and the world will fall.
It is close, now, so close to achieving its goal. For the corporations will have dominion over all life in America, even unto the ending of the world.
Do we leave America to its fate? Do we let them stand alone?
Obama: Bipartisanship…? Lieberman … Snowe ..?
DFH’s: Blue Dogs and corporatists are roaming freely across our lands. Unchecked. Unchallenged. Killing our Democracy at will. Blue Dogs bearing the bloody hand of the Republicans.
Apologists: Why do you lay these troubles on an already troubled mind. Can you not see? Your President is wearied by your malcontent, your class warmongering.
DFH’s: Warmongering? How long since the corporatists bought you? What was the promised price, Apologist? When all the men are enslaved you will take your share of the treasure?
Apologists: You see much, Dirty Fucking Hippies. Too much.You are banished forthwith from the kingdom of politics and all its domains. Under pain of banning!
DFH’s: You have no authority here. Your orders mean nothing.
Apologists: This order does not come from me. It comes from the Corporations and Republicans. They signed it this morning.
Blue Dog Apologists: American Democracy has one weakness. Its outer wall is solid Consitution, but for some small cracks at its base, which are little more than a drain.
Blue Dog Apologists: How? How can the Supreme Court undo centuries of American Democracy?
Apologists: But my lord, there is no such army!
Corporatists: A new power is rising. Its victory is at hand. This decade, the land will be stained with the Blood of American Freedom. Take the corporate jet to Washington D.C. Leave none unbought. TO WAR!!!
