Both Cheri Honkala the Green VP candidate and Lois Rodrogues the Justice Party candidate started off on the wrong side of the street, heading in a dead end direction. What ever they do or do not accomplish with their brand new clot, Pushing basketball and football stars in poor kids faces makes no sense when there are real hero’s to inspire

 

Looking at the first Presidential Debate led me to take a stiff drink, Romney blaming the poor while Obama is afraid to mention them only mentioning the middle class. Logically it is better to be ignored then blamed. There is a persistent drift over many elections that less and less people are paying attention to politics. But maybe if the Greens can inspire the stay-at-homes as the Libertarians and Constitutionalists shave votes from Romney, the future will be brighter even if a last minute economic meltdown leads to a Romney win.

 

After the debate was over I turned on my computer to watch the last half of the expanded debate with Jill Stein the Green Presidential candidate and Rocky Anderson the Justice Party candidate offering inspiration despite my being tipsy with alcohol. I promise if Pennsylvania is no longer Obama Blue but a toss up state November 6, I will vote for Obama unless Obama depresses me so much I couldn’t make it to the polls. Part of the economic depression is Obama endless compromises even though it is good to get excited about Romney’s last hurrah foreign policy which is in this declining economic period is suicidal.

 

Thursday’s expanded Vice-Presidential debate Oct 11, on Democracy Now might be very inspirational. Both Cheri Honkala and Luis Rodriguez came out of extreme poverty and are getting poor folk involved in politics,

WYBE TV 35 has Democracy Now at 6pm but didn’t cover the expanded Presidential debate. Hopefully they will cover the expanded VP debate

 

If the Libertarians join, a former judge, Libertarian Judge Gray who once liked to convict people like the young hood Lois Rodrogues who used to deal drugs can debate Judge Gray who used to make a faddish of putting jail drug dealers in jail. Since he reformed Rodrogues became a prize winning author. Thank to all the 3rd party efforts with a particular appreciation for the Libertarians and Constitutionalists for destroying or at least raining on the super-rich conspiracy, I may not have to get drunk and forget it any more.

 

Try to get a hall or movie theater to hook itself to the internet.

 

Politics turned Rodrogues’s and Honkala’s life around, collective self-help politics is making Honkala’s life soar. Don’t let the hacks say registration to vote is almost over, if someone gets turned away from the voting booth for being unqualified or in some way indicates interest everyone even Obama diehards make sure you have a registration form to hand them for future participation.

 

I would like to see 5 second ads on the TV screen, “’Vote “No!” to two party corruption shop for 3rd party hope election day.

 

Staying home is giving corrupt politicians the world they want”; with a link or several at the bottom of the screen. If one can’t buy a less then 15 second TV ad perhaps the Sierra Club and the ACLU could each have 5 seconds.

 

Why sit around depressed as things slowly get worse under Obama or rapidly collapse under Romney when we can do better? Winston Churchill inspired Britain with his Blood, Sweet and Tears policy, the Libertarians with a no foreign bleeding policy would be better than Obama-Romney as well.

 

PS in Philadelphia there was a small Peace Demonstration with no war on Iran or Syria signs at 30th Street bridge, and the Schuylkill Expressway light, as cars gave a quick toot of approval like they used to at the height of the Vietnam War. I hope this is repeated all over the country. I want a one hour demo at that spot twice a week.

I'm retired in Philadelphia. Non religious but there seems to be a life force that I see as more personal than is usually expressed.

I was raised a Quaker (common with Christian Jewish intermarriage back them) But my father was a total pacifist and during World War II, at the time that being so was difficult.

Upbringing included father trying not to get physical, yet still defend us kids from my harsh stepmother until she got her citizenship papers, after which they could get divorced. Been involved in peace issues since the anti-fallout shelter protests through Vietnam and Iraq.

I wrote "Greedy Little Squirrels and Lifeboat ethics,” 1977, when the Moonies were coming to America and got heavily harassed by them. I also think bin Laden is extremely dangerous like the leader of a barroom brawl, who has been manipulating this country into using the US to get Muslims angry enough to join his suicidal permanent war group. Before 9/11 young Muslims rebelled by wearing by covering their hair a little less than expected and at least winking at each other, now he changed rebellion into being militancy. The Northern Alliance would have been legitimately in charge long ago had he not baited the US into entering Afghanistan.

Obama is making a mistake in my mind with how to stop bin Laden’s dream of permanent war in a divided world but less of a mistake than most anyone else would. If due to currency collapses from out ever more expensive weapons the US stops fighting al Qaeda, then other counties will. If it ends up being Iran, the Sunni Shiite divide will be enormous. Al Qaeda is already convinced that the atheist China is a serious enemy,
http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=al9wM3k5zjLQ and the Russians have fought for brutally and inadvertently convinced far more Muslims than the US did that they considered Islam itself to be the enemy.

I never stopped supporting Jimmy Carter when everyone turned on him and I support Obama as well, but think he will have to use a lot more persuasion and less force if they aren’t going to succeed at bankrupting us. However Obama has tried less force and al Qaeda has started to respond in kind trying to limit the victim’s in the way of their primary attacks.
