'Voting for Death: Criminal vs. Criminal'Linh Dinhhttp://www.counterpunch.org/2012/10/0...
Linh Dinh excerpts:
"America, you have become a nation of enablers and apologists for tyranny and mass murder…
"The Good Old Party spooks the upper and middle classes by threatening, If you don't vote for us, the Dems will take your hard-earned cash and give it to the freeloaders, crackheads and other miscellaneous losers, while the Democrats, in turn, scare the lower rungs by snarling, If you don't vote for us, the Republicans will let your retired, diapered ass rot under a bridge, on a piece of cardboard, but lordy, lordy, lordy, *it is already happening, but let us not sweat the details*...
"Each party paints the other as the greater evil, though both are *equally whorish to a military banking complex [I'd suggest: military-banking-congressional] that has wrought so much grief and destruction worldwide, including here. As they offshore your job, they may toss you a free cell phone or allow you to wed your same sex lover, but isn't it time, seriously, we demand that our money be spent responsibly, for our benefits?
"But no, we can only *beg for small change*, instead of real ones, and *must vote, again, for proven liars and criminals*, and hope, against all evidence, that they won't impale us this time…
"Already, nearly half of Americans don't cast ballots in any election, but ***we must make this abstention purposeful, as a clear sign of protest and not an act of apathy***. The world must see that Americans aren't all deranged and hypnotized as those who cheer and vote for one lying criminal after another. We're better than this, so let's prove it."

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion.
"At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”
