Obama Faces Stiff Headwinds in November, Poll Says - Page 2
What Reagan began was perfected by Bill Clinton. He effected even greater damage to this great country, more than what Reagan did. If Reagan started dismantling the regulations, Clinton enhanced it. His repeal of the Glass-Steagal Act, formation of NAFTA, and adoption of other anti-labor policies paved the way for exporting jobs overseas.
When Clinton signed the Telecommunication Act of 1996, that law singularly changed the face of this nation forever. This Act made sure that capital would have much greater weight than physical labor in the affairs of the nation, and eventually gave over 90% control of the media to the corporate world. This single act ensured that the democracy would be lost in the US, paving the way to the corporate-dominated fascism by the Industrial Military Complex that Eisenhower warned us about in 1961.
It is the Republicans and Corporate Democrats such as Bill Clinton whose policies have brought us to this precipice where our wealth, our national security, and our very lifestyles are at stake. And Obama is continuing the same Republican policies with the misleading slogan of change.
If the Republicans and Democrats are against the interests of the ordinary people, the Tea Party is no solution either, since they are the creation of the very same corporate players who want to exploit the unhappiness of the masses. And the Green Party, with their ineffectual leadership and lack of sincerity, does not impress me either.
I am not therefore looking for Democrats or Republicans on November the 2nd; I am looking for honest and dedicated public servants, which increasingly sounds like an oxymoron.
