What would everyday men and women of “America” do with over 700 billion dollars? What of affordable single payer health care, employment, decent housing, education, and just plain social and economic equality or fairness in this nation?

The blood-sucking Wall Street finance capitalists who support the Democratic and Republican Parties, and most notably the U.S. Presidential candidacy of the Goldman Saks-supported people’s fraud, Barack Obama, are once more spitting in the faces and dreams of the everyday men and women of “America,” and people around the world. Notwithstanding, the blood-sucking Goldman Saks (also referred to as Goldman Sachs) corporate monster, just like a dirty rag the U.S. corporate media is foremost in glazing over and /or outright promoting, this unacceptable and despicable corporate bail-out debacle which is against the best interests of the majority of everyday “American” people and the peoples of the world. This is corporate blood-sucking of the people at its slimiest.

Instead of having accepted the one, five, ten, and twenty dollar contributions from economically poor people whom he has bamboozled as part of his U.S. Presidential campaign, Barack Obama should be promptly returning every single cent to these people, and let them know that he has already been bought and paid for by Wall Street and its concomitant corporate media. This chameleonic charlatan knows full well that his demonstrated and real loyalties are to his Wall Street backers, not to the struggling every day people of the United States of America, regardless of their gender or color.

Neither finance capital nor finance capitalists represent the interests of every day people, at heart. The primary interests of finance capital are to be found in the avaricious accumulation of wealth at the expense of the vast majority of people. The presently evolving economic implosion of the U.S. corporate financial system has come about precisely due to the unbridled feeding frenzy by artificial finance capital upon the people of the United States, and indeed, the world. The U.S. Government bail-outs of these blood-sucking finance capitalists will only forestall the inevitable collapse of the financial system, while serving to make the already rich even richer and the dwindling middle class and poor, even poorer.

Rather than accepting the insulting, misleading, and unadulterated financial, rhetorical double speak of Democratic Party Presidential contender, Barack Obama, and his Republican Party counterparts, it is time for the people of the United States to turn on our creative juices. It is time for the people of the United States to reject the hypocrisy and lies of the Democratic and Republican Parties [i.e. the Republicrats], and build a new person, based upon the collective good for the majority of Black, Brown, Red, Yellow, and White peoples of this nation and world. It is time to think and act outside the Republicrat box of suffocation.

There is at least one powerful alternative that has been consistently ignored and / or denigrated by the U.S. corporate media. The “All Power To The People” campaign of Green Party U.S. Presidential candidate, Cynthia McKinney and her Vice Presidential running mate, Rosa Clemente, embodies that alternative. It is an alternative that is all about systemic change and building an ongoing and genuine people’s movement. While others may drink the poisonous Barack Obama “Kool Aid” of false hope and euphoria, there is a magnificent and serious grass roots movement of Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people throughout the United States who are working to build something that is real, and which goes well beyond the superficial and stifling voting cycles of the Democratic and Republican Parties [i.e. the Republicrat Party]. These folks are working and building now for the present and the future of this nation and planet. This is not about false and poisonous “Kool Aid” hope, but rather, the fresh waters and real hard work of systemic change, once and for all, for the people of this nation and world.

Now is the time to be about building for real and systemic change, not a fake one based upon continued corporate blood-sucking, manipulation, and pimping of the people.

Let us ensure that there is a future that is enjoyed by and lived in by us and our progeny. Onward then. Onward now brothers and sisters…We can and must do this.
