Us v. Them
by Stephen Lendman
In July, Republican and Democrat party bosses will choose the two most widely reviled US presidential aspirants in modern memory. 
Each is unfit for any public office. Each represents wealth, power and privilege exclusively. Each mocks rule of law principles and democratic values. 
Each assures four more years of war at home and abroad. Each says one thing and intends another, their promises made to be broken. 
Each threatens world peace. Each represents what demands rejection. On election day in November, vote independent or stay home. 
Never support any duopoly power candidate. They’re all cut out of the same dirty cloth. Otherwise they wouldn’t be presidential material.
Clinton is an unindicted war criminal/racketeer. Business tycoon Trump likely amassed wealth the old-fashioned way. Balzac once said behind every great fortune is a crime.
America’s state is deplorable, its criminal class bipartisan, ethically challenged, morally depraved, representing pure evil, responsible for genocidal high crimes – wanting planet earth colonized, its resources pillaged, its people exploited, intending institutionalized worldwide dystopian harshness.
“There is no one but us,” Paul Craig Roberts explains. Ordinary people have power when they use it. Now more than ever it’s needed. Everything is on the line like never before – our lives, welfare and futures.
The only solution is nonviolent revolution, bottom up change unattainable by voting. We have a choice – fight for what’s right or live enslaved. 
The other alternatives are too grim to imagine – mushroom cloud denouement or ecocide.
