Okay, the system is so rigged that Buddy Roemer had to call it quits; he wasn’t even allowed on the debates. I might vote for him anyway; just to show that I know what’s going on; it wouldn’t be a wasted vote. Voting for Obama or Romney is a wasted vote, is voting for the corporate oligarchy, which usurped power anyway. Romney and Obama are the same horse in different color.
Do you want to know why our rotting political system is shunning Governor Roemer? Read part of his farewell letter below.
” . . . but we must begin our battle with the special interests who are content with the status quo. They don’t want change. They spend billions to keep their control. They own our political system. They bought it with their fundraisers for incumbents, and with jobs for the already powerful. They bought it with special favors and inside information for those who can return the gesture in amendments and legislation and earmarks. They finance the elections. They hire the politicians upon their retirement. And they own the two major political parties. It’s un-democratic and it’s simply un-American.”
“Look at the facts. 98% of the electorate does not give a penny to presidential or congressional campaigns. The money comes from Wall Street banks, corporate PACs, the labor union coffers, insurance and pharmaceutical companies, Big Oil, military defense contractors, miscellaneous PACs, Super PACs and the lobbyists. The money comes from all of these special interests, and what do they get in return? “Too big to fail” and the death of Glass-Steagall, insurance monopolies, pharmaceutical profit protection, no-bid contracts, $675 hammers for the military, earmarks, $5.1 billion in profits and pay no federal income taxes, subsidies for the wealthiest corporations, and all of the big givers first in line for any perks or favors.” More here: http://www.buddyroemer.com/splash
That is why Charles Elson “Buddy” Roemer governor & congressman, chairman of the reform project, a non-partisan anti-corruption organization fighting the unfair use of money in politics was not welcomed in the debates. http://www.buddyroemer.com
The only vote we have today is how we spend our money and how we use it. Have you moved your money yet?
How to vote, a list:
- Don’t do business with the mega banks (Citibank, Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo etcetera) that is doing business with the enemy. Too big to fail means they are above the law; nobody should be above the law. They are stealing.
- Don’t buy “made in China (or somewhere else)” stuff. It comes from sweat shops; you are supporting corporate gangsters when you do. Go to American Apparel. If you are pressed for cash get your clothing at the thrift store, so you don’t encourage the clothing giants and support small business.
- Don’t join the army. You are fighting for the corporations that comprise the military industrial complex (they are making money on war, blood money) not for democracy. If we bring our troops home the crisis ends.
- Buy an electric car. The oil companies are a great part of the problem.
- Stay away from the mainstream media; it’s misleading. For the real news: Democracy Now
- Do your homework, so you can understand what is going on, and accept your own responsibility in the matter. Your inaction will keep the tyrants in power and they are extremely dangerous.
- Support small business.
- Spread the word! The more people know, the less power they’ll have. The reason they work in the shadows is because they need public support to survive; they need our money.
