I like the righteous new Women Against Sarah Palin site. A counter-campaign against Sarah’s Silly Suffrage is the only choice for the work ahead, although I’m truly wondering if Obama is obscured in a Palin of smoke.
I was reading a little at WASP and I thought:
Suffrage is enfranchisement, to say, not merely a right to vote but freedom from subjugation or servitude. The suffrage we know released women from patriarchal society. The suffrage we don’t know is to free us all from fraud.
And to franchise our Constitution until we are free again.
“The mullahs of the Islamic world and the mullahs of the Hindu world and the mullahs of the Christian world are all on the same side. And we are against them all.” – Arundhati Roy
Removing national news anchors because they are critical is an assassination of Democracy. As if these tactics had been rehearsed in demagogue states [wiki], or conspired in a Presidium [wiki], commandeering media is now American too.
Plucking our progressive pundits to elevate a mafia-like arrogance is a certain treason and conspiracy against our Constitution. At the very least, this exposes a terrible cynicism against our good people and against our great effort to live under principle.
This election may entrench the most blatant oligarchy since perhaps the 19th Century and can outlive our best efforts before it’s removed however vigorous resistance might be.
A very sad and shocking year.
I’ve noticed that each time I discover more of political guile (and folk’s vulnerable to it) I am always shocked. I guess we tend to defend ourselves in heart and head, and do not look to be crippled at the knees.
