Let’s show Wall Street, CEOs of mega-corporation, the international banksters and their lapdogs the Democrat and Republican Parties just who are the real bosses in this country. Both the Democratic and the Republican Parties smugly rest assured knowing that you will vote for one party or the other because they have set the stage to keep all others out. Each party knows they will have their turn, because the same 1% control both parties. They have become the two-headed corporate party. Because the same groups control our state legislatures, they have been able to create obstacles limiting ballot access to newly formed parties and essentially disenfranchise many of our citizens by their rules and regulations. Using the corporate media and celebrative distractions they have been able to put many of our citizens to sleep as to what has really been happening in our country.
WE THE PEOPLE should knock them off their smug pedestals by not voting Democrat or Republican. The Democratic Party knows that you will vote for them as the lesser of two evils, so they don’t need to listen to you. Voting for the lesser of two evils has become an addiction that allows both parties to control you. Vote for progressive independents, third party candidates or write in the third party candidate’s names if he or she is not listed on the ballot of your state. In fact, in my opinion, a vote for any other party, or progressive independent that denies a vote to these two rogue parties is an act of true patriotism.
Rocky Anderson of the Justice party, running for president along with his vice president running mate, Luis Rodriguez, are in my opinion, the best candidates running for those offices. Rocky Anderson, while serving two terms in the executive position of mayor of Salt Lake City, reduced the city’s pollution by 30 percent. He also has a proven record of standing up for human rights and protection of the environment, so critical in these days of climate change. Both Rocky and Luis have records of standing up for justice for all. I encourage you to check the links below to see how they stand on the critical issues that WE THE PEOPLE are concerned about and how we can regain our Democracy. Show the Democratic and Republican duopolies that WE THE PEOPLE are the true bosses of this country and show them the door.
