There’s no doubt the Democrats have alienated their core constituency and given millions of their former supporters little reason to vote. Perpetual war, blank checks for mega-banks, stiffing the working poor while giving away the planet to the rich—-these are all part of the malaise. Our political landscape is currently defined by corporate personhood and its gutting of the Democratic Party.
Part of that is the destruction of our electoral rights, and the refusal of the Democrats to even face the issue, let alone do something about it. Our voting system is, to put it mildly, bought and rigged, further feeding the deadening sense of public futility and frustration.
2030 & sending a message to future generations
China and Obama have made a decision to reduce Carbon emissions by 2030 which is “better than nothing” and that describes Obama’s reign perfectly. Mr better than nothing Obama. Of course play dough face republican Senator McConnell, and spokesman for the coal industry, has already responded – Obama can’t do that.
Good times ahead for planet earth.
