M. Ted (inactive) No Real Choice in American Elections (74* d) RE: No Real Choice in American Elections 25 Oct 00


People who think that there is no difference between the candidates are completely clueless--you may not like either of the personalities, but personalities have little to do with anything--

Bottom line is that the Republicans represent a very specific set of permanent economic interests--quite simply, their priority is to protect the wealth of the wealthy, and to protect the power of the powerful--They oppose ecological legislation because it could interfere with corporate profits, they oppose government regulations because it could interfere with the profitable operation of their business interests, they seek to limit and curtail your right to litigate, because you might sue a big tire company, and they seek to restrict your freedom of speech because you might use it to speak against....well you get the idea.

It is true that you don't have any choice, simply because if you choose the republican candidate, you will be dead meat--so you're stuck with what the democrats offer, and if you think that Ralph Nader is the answer to anything except for the question "Who Wrote "Unsafe at Any Speed" thirty seven years ago--well, I got some really nice swamp land down in Florida--
