Reality or DNC Illusion ?

I am glad I do not have a television with reception. I am glad that it was sunny today. I am glad I am alive…

However, outside in reality the country is slipping into a deeper whole, and the lemmings are following Obama deeper into that whole. Let me first clarify before the “Blame Naderites” get on my case. John McCain is a nut, but that still does not justify me blindly supporting Obama.

I do not support candidates that propose escalating military campaigns such as in Afghanistan, candidates that “criticize” the war in Iraq while refusing to talk about immediate withdrawal or cancellation of the U.S. Embassy fortress the size of the Vatican, and a candidate that has not ruled out usage of the Nuclear Weapons on Iran. Each one of those reasons is clear indications that he is not the “peace” candidate but the mere continuance of the Republican-Democrat (chicken hawk) corporate imperialism.

But in case no one has been paying attention the proof positive that Obama is not radically different from the current administration policies is his selection of Joe Biden as Vice-Presidential candidate. Does America remember when Biden was the Democrat’s Chief Architect in given powers to George Bush to wage war in Iraq? Obama and his supporters can charge as much as they want on the illusion that Obama is the candidate of change, however he is more of the same illusory chicken hawk mentality that the Democratic Party has sold out the American People. The Democrats in succumbing to such mediocrity and complicity are responsible for the collapse of America.

As I will not vote for McCain and I will not vote for Obama, I am disgusted in the Coca-Cola-Coma America has been consumed with. Whether the War Hawk or the Chicken Hawk wins, America is still ruled by the corporate minions of ATT, Exelon, Monsanto and the World Bankers. The question is are you ready for change and can you break your dependence from the lies of political party showmanship? Or would you rather have political spectacles paid for by the corporate criminals who have sold out America. I choose freedom, and my freedom is to declare independence from the top down elitism of the political parties.

“So is there a difference between Democrats and Republicans? Sure. The Democrats say one thing ("Save the planet!") and then do another--quietly holding hands behind the scenes with the bastards who make this world a dirtier, meaner place. The Republicans just come right out and give the bastards a corner office in the West Wing. That's the difference.” Michael Moore

“As a rule, large capitalists are Republicans and small capitalists are Democrats, but workingmen must remember that they are all capitalists, and that the many small ones, like the fewer large ones, are all politically supporting their class interests, and this is always and everywhere the capitalist class.” Eugene Debs who was jailed for expressing his viewpoints while running for President

Changing Organics

A long time has come since I have last written, and since that time my world is rapidly changing. While it appears to me that the world is in a state of chaos and doom, thankfully there is a lot of joy in my world, and I hope for your world as well. Joy makes it all worth living.

For starters I finished school (now I am more than just a radical on the street, but a radical on the street with a Master’s degree), second I am getting married in a week. Anyway, so while the world is masked with so much gloom, I try to look through it and see a silver lining, and take away the many positives that come about each day. It is a hard thing I must tell you because on every passing page or corner there is creeping darkness. However, dispute the madness there are so many people out there doing so much good, and that is where I see the spark of hope in the world.

Now, it is not the hope of a Barrack Obama, for I talk about it is the real hope of people doing change right in their own backwards. Having an Obama sticker on your car or donating money to a political campaign ain’t going to get you a dime (maybe you hope you can). Real hope and change comes from what we do in our everyday world, not waiting for someone above to make things better, change and hope from comes from you and I.

We must change the way we all live. Switching from bananas grown in Chile to organic bananas grown in Ecuador is no different than switching from Pepsi Cola to R.C. Cola. Consumption of goods, 6,000 miles away is bad no matter how it is grown, conventionally or organically. Our whole way of doing business must change.

Secondly, the so called “greening up” of the economy with eco-friendly products is another falsity. The reason we as a planet are in such a dyer predicament is because we as humans have over consumed the planets resources. It is nice my tee-shirt is made from organic cotton, however do we need seventy tee-shirts or an energy efficient dishwashing microwavable toaster? We as a society can not fix the problems of the 20th century by using the same methods that created the problems.

We as a society must move to a more locally based economy, where the majority of our food is cultivated or raised nearby. Consumption of goods needs to be limited to real necessities, and not to the latest Madison Avenue fad. Furthermore, income has to be prioritized based on the value of the job. Why does it that society condemns the salary of a teacher, while the salary of a video-game designer is praised (not to mention professional athletes or other entertainers.) Who in society has the most value, the teacher, the farmer, the nurse, or does the assistant chief marketing procurer of children’s breakfast cereal? This all has to change, not later but now…

So as my days move along and are rapidly changing, I see a world of chaos revolving around me. Instead of living hopelessly in despair I salute those kindred spirits of mine who are out there making a difference. Those growing the local foods, those promoting the local foods, those make clothes from hand, and those supporting all of them are my heroes. Let us all support them and change our way of living to a better world.
