The Parties of Jefferson, Lincoln and FDR Are Dead
by Stephen Lendman
America was never beautiful. Today it’s unfit and unsafe to live in, a monster threatening humanity’s survival.
US duopoly power replaced the eras of Jefferson, Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt. No JFKs exist, a peacemaker assassinated for opposing war, urging nuclear disarmament and rapprochement with Soviet Russia.
New Deal, Fair Deal and Great Society programs are heading for history’s dust bin. Bipartisan neocons infesting Washington want social justice ended, neoliberal enslavement replacing it, fascist police state harshness enforcing it.
America is a gangster state, criminals running it – beginning in the 1990s under Bill Clinton, hardened under George W. Bush, institutionalized under Obama, certain to worsen no matter who succeeds him.
US voters in November get to choose between deplorable, unacceptable choices – Clinton the most recklessly dangerous presidential aspirant in US history, Trump a billionaire, racist demagogue, both self-serving, mindless of popular needs and concerns.
Four more years of endless imperial wars are certain. America will resemble Guatemala before they end, its people impoverished, terrorized by police state harshness, constitutional rights replaced by full-blown tyranny.
Most disturbing is how uninformed and indifferent most Americans are about a ruthless system destroying their lives, welfare and futures.
Elections accomplish nothing, rigged to sustain continuity, benefitting wealth, privilege and power exclusively over progressive governance of, by and for everyone equitably.
The nation I grew up in from the 1930s through the 60s no longer exists, unfit and unsafe to live in since neocons usurped power – Hillary Clinton their current standard bearer.
Will November’s election (sic) be rigged to install her? Corporate controlled electronic voting machines make it simple. So does disenfranchising millions of unwanted voters.
Green party presidential aspirant Jill Stein blasted the Democrat party, calling it “a disgrace…blatantly rigging the system” for Clinton, the corrupted media establishment supporting her, an unindicted racketeer, war criminal, major threat to world peace.
Late in my life, I can’t shake a deep foreboding for what I fear coming, dangers threatening everyone, youths with no futures, endless wars on a slippery slope toward possible mass annihilation.
Poet TS Eliot once mused about the world one day ending “not with a bang but a whimper.” Thermonuclear weapons in the hands of neocons like Hillary Clinton risk otherwise.
