"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."

palin=tough talk-no economic plan except selling planes on eBay. Mocking community organizing. If McCain gets the nod, the death star will appear and America is over. Cold type your thoughts.

I think there can be no doubt that the Empire is in a state of decline, but a McCain victory would rapidly accelerate the process. Another four years of the Team Bush agenda (essentially McCain"s platform) will finish us off for certain. Elites understand this which explains their support for the clearly more capable Barack Obama as imperial manager.

Gotta love those Ron Paul sign-waving supporters in the background. Those guys never give up. Kind of reminds me of the troops of Lyndon LaRouche.

Watched a bit of McCain's stump speech tonight and actually felt sorry for the goof. The feeling quickly passed.

Can someone explain to me, in a clear and concise manner, exactly how electing McCain will summon "the death star" and ensure that "America is over"?

Ah Rue, you poor deluded capitalist. You're still not in touch with "the people". You are still willing to maintain your ignorance about what's really going on all around you.

Wake up!

This country is all about power and control. Your buddies, Bush & Cheney, are using the war to line their own pockets with money. They're all in cahoots with The Corporate Cabal. They get together with their friends in the Federal Reserve and the Banking Committee and chart the course for America's expanding empire.

Don't you see it????

You're blinded by your petty bourgeois sentiments: loyalty, duty, honor, history, American exceptionalism - those are all dead end streets!

Those are the harnesses with which you are enslaved. You're a hamster on the wheel of big business. This country is divided by class, by race and by economics. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

We've got to take the battle to the CEOs and not to the "islamofascists" as you call them.

The real enemies are those who trample on the backs of the working class in this country.

Only through a Bolshevik revolution will the nation be cleansed! With Bush's head on a stick will the soul of this nation be purged and atonement will begin.

My God! Where is my picture of Che? I need to hug it right now!!!

Rue it shouldn't be difficult to understand. McCain represents more of Team Bush, the very worst administration in the history of the republic, and one that has brought unprecedented misery not only to the world at large but to the imperial heartland itself. Even amongst elites this is the general consensus, thus the overwhelming support for Obama from the nation's power centers (i.e Wall Street, Big Pharma, the insurance giants, etc).
