On Election Day The Corporate Masters Will Come For Us...

First the corporate masters of the universe came for Greece, and we here in the United States did nothing. We watched with silence as corporate technocrats toppled the democratic government of Prime Minister George Papandreou and forced austerity on the Greek people against their will. We said nothing as unemployment rates spiraled out of control and suicide rates shot up 40%. We didn't flinch when a Greek pensioner walked up to Parliament and shot himself in the head, leaving behind a letter blaming austerity that read quote, "I cannot find any other form of struggle except a dignified end before I have to start scrounging for food from rubbish bins." This week, the Conservative Greek government unveiled a new round of austerity cuts for the Greek people, who've already lost their universal healthcare system to the banister masters. Pensioners and public workers will again be hit the hardest, just so these corporate masters can collect their returns on their failed investments. And none of us here in the United States are asking any questions as Greece descends into chaos. The main question being, "What's the point of austerity?" Austerity has nothing to do with paying down Greek's debt. After these new austerity measures, Greece's current debt ratio will soar from 165% of GDP to 190% of GDP, making it even more difficult in the long run to pay down any debts. On top of that, the economy is projected to contract 4.5% in 2013, compared to previous prediction of 3.9%. And ...

Are we doomed to have more stolen elections?

A close national election, like everyone is expecting this year, translates to an even closer election in the states where all it will take is a few thousand voters to flip an election. It is way too easy to steal an election in America. Our Electoral College allows just one or two states to swing a Presidential election every year. The privatization of the vote with electronic voting machines has handed over the beating heart of our democracy - the vote - to corporate interests who then handle it in secret. And the lack of an explicit federal "right to vote" for all eligible Americans has made voter suppression efforts much easier and harder to prosecute or prevent. We must fundamentally change how we elect our President and who gets to vote in that election. Until we do this, we don't have a democratic republic that the rest of the world should emulate - we just have a dysfunctional system that the plutocrats can steal and more closely resembles an oligarchy than a republic.
