Death of Democracy

I noted in tonight’s paper a headline that proclaimed “Democrats have to sell their new strategy to liberals.” In other words they’ve caved in to the “Decider in Chief.” When the epitaph of our democracy is written and it might be soon, May 2007 might well be the date after the dash. The Democrats, a.k.a. “wobblecrats” have sold out not liberals, but the American people who overwhelmingly don’t support this war. I think the numbers are about 69% against more involvement in Iraq. We no longer have a democracy in the United States. That has been replaced by a puppet legislature with an all powerful executive. The people no longer have an effective voice in their government. The noble experiment which began in earnest after the constitutional convention of 1787 has ended. Rest in peace.

  1. I wouldn’t throw a handful of dirt on that grave just yet. Our democracy is at it’s lowest ebb in history, but We The People can yet give it the breath of CPR life!

    I have been saying for years that the dems and repubs only SAY different things. Which ever party holds power DOES the same old failed agenda. The reason I am more hopeful that we can now reawaken or democracy is because, vis-a-vis this failed war supported every step of the way in actions by BOTH the dems and repubs. Many of our fellow citizens are waking up to the fact that the dems and repubs are indistinguishable from each other in their actions.

    Perhaps come election time, we will cast our votes for a “third party” candidate! I have in past and will continue to do so. Vote for ANYBODY not a repub or a dem! It is our last best hope to wrest our government out of the vice grip the of repulicrats/dempulicans who are fully and obviously complicit in their failed agenda! Spread the word, the tea
    (third party votes) is being dumped into the harbor (elections) again!

    The scientifically impossible I do right away
    The spiritually miraculous takes a bit longer

  2. I don’t think that’ll work either. I voted for Perot in 1992. He predicted all that has happened. He should have been hailed as a great prophet. Instead he’s been marginalized as a quack. I watched Tucker on MSNBC tonight and he couldn’t believe that obese people are poor. He can’t get it through his head that obesity can be caused by an inferior diet. Duh!

    This reminds me of the story of the poor man Lazarus in the Gospel. The sin of the rich man was/is that he just didn’t see Lazarus. Tucker and the rest of the rich don’t see the damage that is being done because they are culturally and politically blinded. It was terrible for Saddam Hussein to gas the Kurds, but okay for our cavalry to Massacre Sioux women, old men and children at Wounded Knee. It’s terrorism at the World Trade Center but collateral damage when a bomb kills folks at a wedding in Iraq or Afghanistan.

  3. Yes, there is also the regular folks who have been blinded by the failed reporting of this elite class. It’s as if Lazarus can’t see the rich man for what he is. Involved in getting himself richer at the expense of everyone else. In our resent time, I believe more people have finally seen through the smokescreen and are starting to question if the two major parties really serve the best interests of ourselves and our country. If enough of us commit to voting outside the two majors, come election day the dems and repubs will have to face that we are walking away from them. Then we have hope for change. If we continue to keep voting for them, they will stay the same.
