    James Petras, professor emeritus of sociology in Nwe York wrote: "Will the “progressives” ever play honest and publicly state: we back Obama in “swing states” because he has “only” murdered 10,000 Afghans, 5,000 Iraqis, is starving 75 million Iranian’s via sanctions, gives $3 billion for Israeli displacement of millions of Palestinians, personally oversees the arbitrary executions of US citizens and promises an extended kill list … because Romney promises to be worse … Expecting honesty from the proponents of ‘lesser evils’ is as farfetched as taking serious their criticisms between elections."  Your opinions?

      Nobody is interested or is it because the truth hurts badly?

        It's not that I'm disinterested, but I have a different take on it. Which, I'll give tomorrow because it's 12.45am and I'm beat, so off to bed.

    I think it's time we all admitted that America is running under a two-party dictatorship with continuity of agenda: big government, big military, big tyranny.

    Please please please please stop acting like the Democrats and the Republicans are different . . . please

    I doubt that the average American voter knows those statistics.
    But in general, would agree that on foreign policy,
    Obama perceived as the lesser of two evils.
    If he can keep us out of another official war in the next 4 years, he will prove that.
