Fox, Huckabee, Romney and Hillary

Binx101In a recent Fox News article, responding to a Romney campaign claim that a vote for Huckabee is a vote for Hillary – Huckabee is quoted as saying:

”Actually a vote for me is a vote for me. A vote for Mitt Romney may be a vote for Hillary Clinton, because the fact is I’ve got a far more conservative record than Mitt Romney ever dreamed of having,”Huckabee said.” Where people can come up with branding him a conservative is really, I think, tantamount to requiring an extraordinary amount of imagination.”

It seems to me that Fox News has framed this discussion. There is no more meat on this bone than there was before these comments were tossed about. These are the same irresponsible corporatists that have vacillated on every important American issue. They carefully reacted to the ridiculous argument that sending young men and women into harm’s way must be defended at all costs – because if one does not, they run the risk of some marginal thinking promoter of commentary calling them un-American.Romney, Huckabee, Hillary arguments are framed meticulously by people that we have recklessly empowered, in order to distract us from realities that average citizens of different political persuasions would easily come together to discuss, civilly and in a civics context. We’ve been bred, to watch the birdie and smile, while they steal our camera.We’re watching 100 of millions of dollars being spent by people to assume a position that pays 400K. This is a position of access and influence that truly represents polar opposite ideologies – with our beloved country and its citizens very much like miners, that must shop at the company store.

Huckabee will say or do anything, no I meant Romney, no I meant Hilllary ah … Let me start over.

There doesn’t appear that there is any candidate that isn’t prepared to say anything they think a particular group wants to hear, in order to get elected president, even if it requires a reversal of a promise made 10 days earlier. That being said – which one of the them offers the best chance to actually return to a real a program to correct the disgraceful performance of our Nation both at home and outside our borders.It is impossible to call oneself a Patriot – if one isn’t completely outraged at the what we’ve permitted to happen to our reputation – our hard working American citizens meager wealth – our currency – our missing energy policy – our silent approval of an invasion of a Sovereign Nation – our loathsome approach to National Health ….. Oh never mind … let’s listen to the politicians eloquent exchange of platitudes and buzz words while we bob our heads to the music.

We should be demanding that these candidates speak to real issues. Turn off American Idol, put down the Cheese puffs, stop surfing porn for 20 minutes a day and forget about what Fox News, MSNBC or any other polarizing corporate info-tainment actor wants you to believe and think for ourselves. Ask all the candidates to respond to the real issues – not the script – and then choose … don’t fall for choosing now. That’s how we got where we are now.

Hold back the money – see what corporations are the candidates bankers. That’s much more informative indicator of what they’ll do – as opposed to what they’re telling us they’ll do. We should be like a jury – huddling together and remaining open – across party lines. Talking with each other instead of being pushed into queues we don’t even understand.

It doesn’t matter that may have already decided to vote a party-line, the huddle is still good if we want to sell your point of view – and to sell a concept to someone – we clearly need to be having a civil discussions. Don’t buy into the bloodsport concept that has poised American against American while they pick our pockets and condemn our Nation for their own self interests and Royalist rule. Stick to your guns, but also keep your eyes and ears open so you know at what you’re aiming.
