If you have not already voted, in seven days you'll have the opportunity to choose between two corporate-whore Republicans. One is an ever-lying, say and do anything bully, a member of the super rich bent on cutting his own income taxes by 26%, and the other is a Republican wolf in Democratic sheep's clothing who once posed as a black liberal.
No matter which you choose, both will attack social security, Medicare and Medicaid as part of a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff. Romney's presidency over the next years would feature more wars, more shifting of wealth to the rich, and a further dumming down of America.
Hmmm. Ditto the same for Obama.
With both parties nominating corporate shills, not much will change until the various underclasses (that is you and me) organize to revolt. I don't see this happening soon, for the Republican party knows how to deal with unrest among the masses. As one cartoonist said, "It is because we have the best riot police in the world."
The type of society that obtains when corporations conspire with the government to control all aspects of its citizenry's lives is called fascism. We are far more fascist now than ten years ago, and I assume in another 20 years we will be an entirely, police-controlled society, even as Obama moves forward under pretext of national security to legally weaken personal constitutional rights, and also strengthen Homeland Security's control of domestic intelligence.
Everyone knows this. The liberal journalists know this, and the right wing journalists not only know it, but are spokespersons for the corporatization of the little remaining residual democracy.
I predict further increases in the "berserker" cases, where individuals go mad and start killing masses of innocent people.
