THOM HARTMANN you are no "progressive"!
By supporting Obama You have also been supporting the stati quo, the PTB, the police state, the PRIVATE FOR PROFIT prison system, our PRIVATE FOR PROFIT health "care" system and our endless illegal, unjust WARS and occupations.
By supporting Obama, your supporting a man who have violated his oath of office, the constitution and bill of rights many times.
By expanding those dam free trade agreements, he has sent more of OUR JOBS to the dictatorship of communist China, Obama extended those Bush tax cuts for the rich, raising the deficit even higher, Obama has sent more of our young people overseas to wage illgal wars and occupations, "Gitmo" is still open and "our" torture is done in other, more closed, countried like Pakistan, he has expanded using remotely controlled KILLER DRONES on mere "suspects", he signed a bill that would allow this corrupt governemt to indefinately detain any American on mere suspician, people have had their residences raided and the residents JAILED because they MIGHT be planning to protest against this corrupt, warmongering, constitution and bill of rights violating government.
Being considered INNOCENT until PROVEN GUILTY has been twisted 180 degrees, now we are GUILTY until we can prove ourselves innocent.
Obama LIED when he said he would end persicuting sick cannabis users, instead, he has raided cannabis clinics, jailed growers and sick users and destroyed their medicine and more people than ever are incarcerated for using, growing or possesing a mere PLANT!
The last "democrat" I voted for was President Clinton, then he pushed and got NAFTA, CAFTA, WTO and GATT, proving Ross Perot right as OUR JOBS were sucked up and moved overseas mainly to the dictatorship of communist China.
I will not waste my corporate controlled and counted "vote" for any non-progressive "democrat" and all democrats allowed to run for a higher office are all corporate puppets, just like Obama has been proven to be.
SHAME ON YOU THOM HARTMANN for supporting this lying war criminal, you are no "progressive"!
