The below is taken from the ‘Links by George’ Newsletter I received from George Douvris, a family friend. Just thought I’d help him spread the truth….
What a low, disgusting move this week by DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her lust to keep her friend Hillary coronated through one more attempt to rig the election process. A technical glitch on the DNC computer that Bernie not only apologized for but also fired the person on his staff that might have been responsible, was not enough for the elite. Such was the excuse that they came up with to now prohibit his campaign from having access to the Democratic membership contact numbers. A devastating and probably illegal prohibition. Does she and Hillary sit around the table trying to figure out the next move to assert demockery as part of a political process that is supposed to represent which candidate party members vote for? The question of whether a Bernie supporter will vote for the Democratic candidate is now even more clearly answered. The DNC is showing its true face as corrupt and not even representing the interests of most of its members by duping them with false impressions that veil the issues. The game they are playing can easily backfire as a significant number of Democrats will write in Bernie’s name anyway at election time rather than supporting a party that seems to be a puppet of big business. Picking bogus days to for the debates such as on a Christmas shopping Saturday afternoon during an NFL game was obnoxious enough but this new development is almost criminal.
Bernie is very much the people’s choice which the establishment very much does not want awareness to spread. Even the DNC is part of this wall of silence. Yet the people are being heard and the plan foiled. Hundreds of thousands of calls filled the DNC with complaints over this sneaky maneuver that resulted in the reversal of their plans to shut Bernie out of the voter information access.
“Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country” is a famous quote whose message is now just as vital as it was when it was first written. It is no secret that our society and the whole world are in deep trouble as greed, ignorance, war and apathy have shadowed compassion and true justice. The political model of democracy in the US has been rigged and as George Carlin says: “Forget the politicians. They are irrelevant. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice! You have OWNERS! They OWN YOU. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought, and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls.”. When a congressman, judge, or even president go to their official seat, there is an invisible but well understood sign on it that says property of some global big business. In other words our representatives are working for the agenda of these other entities and often to the detriment of the public good.
Of all the candidates for presidency, only Bernie Sanders is not bought and sold and represents the true interests of the American people. Follow the Super-PACs and you will see that Bernie is not getting the million dollar donations as the others, but the average $35 dollar ones from the American public. Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, and all the so called “progressives” that are supporting her are only progressing their lavish bank accounts instead of the interests of the common man, woman or child. Compassion used to be taught at home but parents are too busy and hope the kids can learn on their own. They don’t at school as the system is supporting a focus on jobs needed by the economy. Likewise politicians reflect this same lack in how they construe priorities based to allegiance to the big business model. Ronald Reagan called it a “trickle down” economy in which the wealthy would be directing their spending eventually down to the more needy. But what’s wrong with a “trickle up” model in which the economy could grow from what is directed at helping the more economically disadvantaged whose spending would reach the higher tier? Such would be a message of the peaceful political revolution that Bernie is speaking of. The audacity of the Democratic National Committee to call him not a true Democrat is absurd and irrelevant. As the Democratic Party has moved to the right, it could well be considered akin to representing the views of moderate Republicans. Bernie is more of a Democrat than mainstream Democrats because he never forgot the party’s commitment to the working class or in his efforts on behalf of middle class Americans. We don’t need no stinking badges. It’s about the issues not the membership card into what political club they are part or not part of. So what is wrong in saying we should have health care and free college tuition for all Americans? The rest of the civilized world does. Why do we need to keep increasing arrests of mostly poor minority kids to make money for private prison investors? Bernie wants to stop these evil practices as well as stop the terrible drug war by legalizing cannabis. He wants to stop the inflated prices of prescription drugs as well as bust the banks and wall street for illegal practices and tax loopholes. Perhaps we can take a lesson from Iceland that not only imprisoned key bankers for committing fraud but also have distributed the millions of dollars they ripped off as individual payments to their citizens.
Hillary Clinton is a whole other representative. Halloween is over and the masks need to be taken off. Hillary is a war hawk and one of her first promises is to give Israel more say in determining US military aid for perpetual war. She is a close friend of wall street which means little hope for environmental or consumer safeguards. She is not trustworthy as evidenced through her emails including knowing that there would be an invasion of Iraq before 9-11 occurred. Definitely a war crime. She supported TPP, Keystone and many other terrible projects that she is now saying otherwise. When her husband was president, she likewise encouraged expanding the “war on drugs” as well as making money from private prisons. Not a very nice person to be representing “we the people”.
Behind Hillary’s wide plastic smile and well polished talking style she is laughing at the duped American people that actually believe she is a progressive and cares of them. In reality based on previous experience, she really means “let them/us eat cake”. So yes, no need for heads to fall but as Thomas Jefferson had the foresight to say, we need a political revolution every few years. A need that is very long overdue. Our older generations seem to be quite corrupted and docile, so hope lies in the younger millennials to activate to save their future. Please tell everyone you know, if we care not to have a gloomy future, vote for Bernie Sanders.
