The two-party machine

Dear Editor:

So much talk of hope and change … at the very least we can thank the Obama Nation for showing that our worst fears are true: We live in a corporatocracy. The voter can elect a dem or a repub and the status quo rolls on (over the proverbial cliff). Thanx, Mr. Prez. Not.

What would McCain have done different? Escalate war. Check. Bail-out bankster gangsters. Check. Mandatory corporate insurance buy-in disguised as health care reform? I doubt he could have pulled that off.

So this lesser-evilism of our two-party tyranny rings hollow.

It’s time to crush the Corporate Machine. And that first step is taking out the fraudsters wrapped in a farce: the Democrats. Join the Disgruntled ones on Jan. 13 by switching your voter registration to the Green Party.

Happy New Year.

Ben Newell
