"The wealthy, not only by private fraud but also by common laws, do every day pluck and snatch away from the people some part of their daily living. Therefore, when I consider and weigh in my mind these commonwealths which nowadays do flourish, I perceive nothing but a certain conspiracy of rich men in procuring their own commodities under the name and authority of the commonwealth.

They invent and devise all means and crafts, first how to keep safely without fear of losing that which they have unjustly gathered together, and next how to hire and abuse the work and labor of the people for as little money and effort as possible."

Dems in Danger

Oh no! The presumptive crown appears to slip ever so slightly from St. Obama's blessed head. Beads of sweat now grace his brow and frankly the faithful are worried. They should be. The Barockstar can't shake McCrazy and Sarah "The Diplomat" Palin no matter how much he panders to the right wing crowd which the polls seem to now confirm.

We've all seen this movie before of course. The Democratic wing of the Business Party would rather wither and die than inspire a class revolution, but then you knew that of course. Unsurprisingly the GOP knows how to play this game, how to tap into America's inner crazy and they're off to a fine start. The problem is largely twofold really. First, the Democratic Party is collaborationist in every sense not an agent of fundamental change and, secondly as IOZ points out, huge swaths of the American population ain't ready for no chang'in.

Hey Coldie,
Check out the latest issue of International Socialist Review. Great articles about failures of Obama and the Democratic Party. the Obama article is a bit long and I still have to finish it. More later!
