this is a short one… but none the easier to digest…
wmtriallawyer has an essay on the rec list at dKos that states “Bill Clinton is becoming a Republican.”
c’mon… you’re just registering that President Clinton left OPEN ROAD for Bush 43???????
for me, this reinforces exactly WHY the presidential race is of little consequence. mainstreamers have mutated into corporatists. what we need to do, imo, if we are serious about restoring our broken governmental infrastructure, is to concentrate on CONGRESS… that’s were the work gets done. or is supposed to get done. and all it takes is some sturdy, hard-to-shut up Americans in Congress to upset the ability of corporate dominance over our country.
so i’m thinking there ought to be some consideration of funneling all this fabulous energy we have into recruiting americans interested in restoring our Constitution. and stop obsessing over whether they are democrats or republicans.
we need people who can deal with reality, sincerely have the interests of the country at heart (and that means republicans, libertarians, democrats, greens, indies), and help them get to Washington.
a good place to start is in state houses where legislators have been calling for impeachment or trying to invoke article V to hold constitutional conventions. these are the strong-minded types we need to seek…
i beseech all of you to stop thinking that a democrat in the white house is the answer to our prayers. it will not be because it is in no way enough nor can mainstream candidates be completely trusted (case-in-point, President Clinton).
the longer we take in seeing where the real work needs to be done, the farther in this hole we will be. we don’t have time to be wrong. and i’m telling you, this is soooooooooo much bigger than a democratic presidential win.
