You're describing a dystopian future, of which the foundations are being laid today. I'm of the opinion that it makes no difference who wins in an election. It's a big dog and pony show. Entertainment, distraction really.
I think the evolution of the democratic political system has been usurped by corporatism. All forms of tiered power sharing ( the systems that have historically governed and the evolved mass participation ones as well ) are excellent environments where the sociopath flourishes. The corporation is a sociopathic device, treated as an entity in modern Western society - with out the checks and balances that an individual is subjected to, and as such has now assumed supremacy over the masses.
We are in those waters now my friend. Here there be dragons.
Thank you for your comment, R-B. Always insightful.
Obama always gives good speeches, for what that's worth. He didn't say anything we hadn't heard before, though. It was Clinton's that shed new light for me.
"Gilfur, I'm a registered Independent voting for Obama and thought it was a good move on his part to have Clinton speak."
Registering I, in my opinion, is foolish. Unless one lives in an open primary state, you are giving up one of your votes.
It is unAmerican that every state doesn't have open primaries.

Let us keep our eyes on the horizon, rather than directly in front, to beware of what may come.
I figured it is just des not matter.... Matter a fact I lost more respect for them man. He had to have Clitnon come and say come vote me his, pretty bullcrap speechs are not fooling anyone anymore. But it is either Romney the Devil I do not know or the Devil I do know Obama.
you still have time to remove that one typo up there that is really bad.
C L I N T O N, folks.
You're a doll, Maire. You make me smile.

Obama wins, you get tax breaks. Could you use more money? If not you spend it, help the economy.
Romney wins, you pay $2000 a year more in taxes, rich folks keep more of their money. What does the 1% do with their money? Put it in over seas banks. Invest in foreign businesses.
Poor and middle class folks stimulate the economy with spending, saving, and investing locally.
Rich people take money out of our economy.
Good summary Frank
