Further Indications That The Election Of Obama Means Death To The Status Quo



Trying to explain the meaning of the ABC presidential debate:
“We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics. And they will only grow louder and more dissonant in the weeks and months to come.” from Barack Obama’s concession speech after New Hampshire primary January 2008
Last night I think we got a glimpse of what the begining of the end of the final throws death rattle of the establishment look like in it’s moribund attempts to discredit, defeat or stop Barack Obama’s enormously successful campaign for the Presidency of the United States.

I think we often fail to see and understand properly in the day-to-day reality show gotcha nature of the modern presidential campaigns what Obama’s eventual election will represent. The establishment and their mouthpiece, the main stream media, and the likes of politicians like the pathologically lying Hillary Clinton know that the campaign is now entering the end game and they are about to lose their shirts.

To them Obama’s successful candidacy represents death because it would finally put a president in the white house who would be more allied with the people against the status quo powers to be, that they represent. Yes, even these cute stuffed shirt ill informed co-opted surrogates who main job is life is to continually sell us this phony ABC Disney style patriotic feel good bowl of warm shit bill of goods in the form of the American nightly cable and/or broadcast news are facing the reality of what a Obama victory would mean to them.

They will not die away easily for there is much for them to lose.

The political game changing nature the election of Obama is a real possibility so it is not just Hillary Clinton who is attempting to throw the kitchen sink at him. It is every major corporate media power and individuals, the likes of the Clinton "ass kissing" news commentator George Stephanopoulos, who personally profited in some form or the other from, consolidation of unregulated media power, war, death, plundering of the nation’s treasury, destruction of the government institutions set up to protect the people against unregulated abuse of power or destruction of the environment, criminally negligent medical and drug companies, gun nuts, those opposed to a modern national health insurance system, fair tax opponents, purveyors of the general corruption of our constitutional rights and powerful radical right wing religious groups including the likes of the Catholic Church, the Jewish lobby and the other assorted power hungry bigots, the idol rich, criminals gangs, phonies, and Republicans et al.

No one should be under the illusion that change will be easy. But we must have it if we are to save the nation. This is our moment for action and resolve. Our faith in the general common sense of the American people makes us hopeful. I think they are up to the challenge.

Yes we can!
