Ohio and the crumbling facade of democracy

Funny thing about the Ohio recount: John Kerry doesn't care. Now, anyone that reads this blog already knows how I feel about American "democracy" and electoral politics. It's a lie, a facade designed to hide the truth. What's interesting in the case of the 2004 elections is not the fact that the election was stolen nor is it the fact that the corporate media is not talking about the obvious evidence that has emerged to those on the ground in Ohio. I fully expect that to happen. No, what is interesting is that John Kerry and the Democratic Party quit the fight so quickly. I have come to expect that the establishment, Republican and Democrat, do care about appearances. They have an interest in maintaining what has become a one party system and so to an extent they have an interest in the illusion of choice. I would have expected John Kerry to put up just a little more of a fight but the danger there is that too much fight might draw too much attention to the little game going on.

The facade is crumbling and the irony is that those that care most about democracy are fighting for the integrity of the lie. It's a strange situation. I think about those fighting the fight in Ohio and I wonder, do they really want John Kerry to be president? While they struggle for a recount, he apparently has given up the fight and is hoarding the remaining millions of dollars given to elect him. I've felt from the beginning that he's a scumbag and the truth is I think that anyone who's put up for the presidency from the Republicrat establishment is just going to be a representative of that establishment and not of the people. What we can see here is that it is that there is the distinction between the professional party bureaucrats that make up the machine and those on the ground that supposedly represented.

My suggestion: let the facade crumble. Let us look directly upon the truth of governance by the wealthy few. Those that are organizing for the recount, stop. Now is the time to build the movement that will destroy the lies of false democracy and challenge not just the one party system, but the system as a whole. Frankly, I don't care if you're Christian, Muslim, Athiest, Jewish, Buddhist, Agnostic, Hindu; I don't care if you are black, white, red, yellow, green, blue, or martian; I don't care if you have a penis or a vagina and I don't care what you like to suck or fuck.

I propose that we live on one planet and that it should not be a planet of me against you.
