National nightmare just beginning

Everything this author says is true.  Our nation is going down because of small-minded ignorant citizens who vote against their own interests.  What to do?  We can't change their minds. Lemming-like, they follow every word told to them by Limbaugh, Beck, Coulter, Malkin, and the like.  With their votes for the Sarah Palins, Sharron Angles, and Michele Bachmanns, they are dragging the rest of us along with them as they jump off the cliff.  We have reached the end of our democratic republic and are now an oligarchy, owned and corrupted by the rich.  Say goodbye to the fast-disappearing middle class, and don't forget to say thank you to Dick Cheney, the Bushes, and Reagan for delivering all of this to us.  Read the article at: and weep.  You may also want to read David C. Korten's book When Corporations Rule the World.

Our National Nightmare Isn't Over -- It's Just Beginning
by David Michael Green

The Republican Party was once a moderately conservative, pro-business outfit, until it was highjacked by the oligarchy and turned into a full-on predatory machine, hiding behind the facade of hate mobilizing issues like bogus overseas threats abroad and uppity brown people and demanding women at home. Basically, any way that middle class white males could be distracted from their sinking economic status - through the diversion of a sense of superiority over others, or the supposed threat to that superior status - was employed to cover for a party whose true agenda was to quietly produce the greatest transfer of wealth in all of human history.
