Dictatorship dems

If we want to scourge the cancer, we have to call it cancer.

We have one corporate party with 2 names giving it almost supreme authority over the state.

To bust this up you have to get the people repulsed or adverse to even the sound of their mere existence while positively promoting our principles. Working both sides is the fastest way.

Calling them Third Wayers is milky toast at best. The focus is to reach low-information voters who don't know what Third Way is or means. Low-information , by its nature, means their not going to research it but if we associate it with Dictatorship, they know what that is.

If we learned anything from the repubs it is wordsmithing is vital, especially with this corrupt media.

Next step, making the word corporations smell and taste rancid.

Remember ole Georgie Bush's quote,"If this were a dictatorship it would be a heck of a lot easier...as long as I'm the dictator, Hehehe."

5. I always like the shorter versions like yours, but I'll give it a try

I pledge allegiance to the Corporate logo of the United States Corporations of America and to the sovereign ruler to which it obeys, one nation under a C.E.O., to big to break up and with Liberty and Justice for the 1%.

3. Been calling it a cancer in the party.

Still waiting for the pitch forks and torches.

Also called them out before and after the midterms, look up my posts.

It's been my experience that people need to catch up.

It's also been my experience that if you mouth off to much people think your crazy.

4. Phlem,do you think I'm crazy?

"to catch up" to what? Any war can have many battles before victory is declared. At this point we're not close to victory. If I joined the team after a few battles have been fought, how does that make my participation less valuable?

6. I'm not saying you are.

I have PTSD from early childhood abuse. Along with that I have Hyper Vigilance from the PTSD. I see things coming a mile away usually before others do (has been my experience with family and friends all my life). I used to talk about said things and I would get some of the nastiest looks so I learned to contain myself because of past ridicule.

We all have our gifts to bring to the table. I'm just saying sometimes it takes people a bit longer to warm up to an idea or concept, that's all.

We need all the support we can muster and your's is no exception.

Just keep doing what your doing, don't despair if people aren't on the same page with you right away but keep moving forward.

I in turn will continue doing what I'm doing and maybe if we all get together as a collective working towards the same goal with all our individual talents, we can finally get something done.

Peace my friend.

7. Peace and Love in return

I will pick up a sword and walk side by side with you into any battle. It's never about me, always about the "WE"

8. in Latin America they're called "officialists": whoever the Big Boss picks gets in

LA also has a huge problem about parties riding on nothing more than events from decades ago, past policies they've completely repudiated, and empty hatred for the Other Guys

10. If we are going to educate low information voters, then we need to know what the

problem is. I know I didn't know until relatively recently. I KNEW something was wrong a time went by and no matter how much power we gave them, they always had excuses as to why Democratic policies 'just can't pass'.

So I read somewhere about the infiltration of the party a couple of decades ago by the DLC and learned what their policies were. Then I read more, and all of a sudden, it became clear, I wasn't imagining things, there really was a problem and it explained all the reasons for all the questions I had had.

I guess in that sense I was a 'low information' voter.

I wouldn't underestimate the ability of people who simply don't know things, to learn about them.

OWS did some of the groundwork for us, they highlighted with very succinct phrases the problem of Corporate Control of our government.

I totally agree with making Corporate Money in Politics POISON for a candidate.

As for how to explain the problem to voters who are not aware of what it is, since Wall St is already a bad word for voters, perhaps simply telling them that both parties are being controlled by Wall St, the Dems not yet completely.

And that this Wall St attempt to control our party is the reason why they talk about cuts to SS etc.

Get the money our of our electoral system because it has corrupted it to the point where Wall St is being served by our government, see the Bailouts of corrupt Banks, while Main St is left to fend for itself.

11. somebody in one of Kevin Costneers movies said

If you build it they will come. Buckmenster Fuller said You can never change anything by fighting the existing reality. If you want people to change you must build a better model.

I don't think it is enough to try to enlighten low hope voters with just how corrupt the system is until at the same time you can demonstrate that there is a better way. Trying to reform an entrenched 250 year old corrupt plutocracy
is a tough sell. Would that it were a matter of one man or one woman in the right office, but it is not.
