Consider the Lobster: He is Us

Chris Hedges, writing for the “Nation of Change” website, concludes his chilling article with these observations:

“Obama is not in charge. Romney would not be in charge. Politicians are the public face of corporate power. They are corporate employees. Their personal narratives, their promises, their rhetoric and their idiosyncrasies are meaningless. And that, perhaps, is why the cost of the two presidential campaigns is estimated to reach an obscene $2.5 billion. The corporate state does not produce a product that is different. It produces brands that are different. And brands cost a lot of money to sell.

You can dismiss those of us who will in protest vote for a third-party candidate and invest our time and energy in acts of civil disobedience. You can pride yourself on being practical. You can swallow the false argument of the lesser of two evils. But ask yourself, once this nightmare starts kicking in, who the real sucker is.”

Those who found Clinton convincing at the Dem’s convention, and those who ignored his pitch, would do well to read Hedges’ complete article, which presents a rather different laundry list than the one Clinton delivered to the tv audience a few weeks ago.  Please click on this link, and read on.  Lest you forget, the election is six weeks away.  Meanwhile, we’re being boiled alive.
