By all means, go ahead and vote for Romney! I don’t care why you do, even if it is for absurd reasons like you think Obama is a Muslim or a Communist. Vote for Romney and lets kick America’s class war into overdrive! Obama has been driving it for the last four years, but because he is a democrat, and because he has been so hated by the right wing, his fascist policies have been receiving a free pass from a huge swath of citizens who will be rudely awakened when Romney wins.
The following article by Norman Pollack does a great job of articulating what I have been increasingly feeling these last few months: http://www.counterpunch.org/2012/10/12/america-on-the-cusp-of-fascism/
He writes, “Republicans sincerely criticize Obama because they are too ignorant to recognize, in their rush to antigovernment rhetoric, that he takes the same position as they smoothed out to please a base at best composed of pretend-radicalism and, equally, to ward off criticism from those who desperately want to believe his earlier promises. This comes down to political theater at its cruelest…
“If Republicans come across as Taliban on cultural issues, Democrats almost surreptitiously advance the financialization of the total economy, with the consequent distortions introduced–loss of manufacturing, increasing wealth concentration, and capitalism’s Achilles heel, underconsumption. Why Romney? Because his transparency as a Neanderthal may, just may, bring people into the streets, while under Obama passivity and false consciousness appear almost irreversible.”
Just how likely is a Romney win? I’d say it is very likely considering the fact that Goldman Sachs, after funding Obama in 2008 to the tune of over $1 million, has ditched Obama and jumped into bed with Romney, funding his campaign by a total of $1.8 million, while only giving Obama $136,000 (see story). Goldman Sachs thrives on picking winners. It’s rather inconceivable that Wall Street’s most powerful investment bank would pick the wrong horse in this race.
Transparency is the key. Romney will face a serious fight from people who understand that economics is a deeply moral issue (given the fact that it is the science of how we choose to live), whereas Obama would likely be given another free pass from many of these same people if he were to win again.
I’ve had enough rhetoric of Hope and Change. It’s time for Revolution.
