It is one thing to claim that there is much that private entities can do better than government, but quite another to lobby for the complete privatization of government. There are roughly a half dozen International Corporate entities that currently run the USA. The Citizens United Supreme Court anti constitutional finding that corporations are people and further, that money is speech, has so corrupted our democracy we can't get clear from our debt, out of the wars and come together as a United States of America.
While both parties share some blame for this outcome, it is clear that the Far Right Wing of politics is most at fault. So-called conservatives, something they are not by any definition, are in cahoots with the Internationalists moving us ever closer to becoming The Neo Third World akin to Orwell's 1984 novel depicting a society wherein the majority is chained to the wheel of industry and will owe everything and own nothing.
I am not altogether pleased with President Obama and the Democrats but I can clearly see that if we turn the nation over to the Right Wing zealots it will mean the end of our democracy.
It is a fact that democracy, the will of the majority, can be difficult at times because of the many voices often creating a din, however, an Authoritarian take over as is the goal of the Far Right will damage our country beyond repair.
It is unfortunate that we have to listen to the plethora of lies from idiots wishing to make Obama a one term president from even before he took the oath.
There is no easy way to cure the ills generated over the last few decades by the distribution of most of the wealth to the top few but we have no choice but to take whatever steps are necessary to right the ship of state.
