To the editor:
Having watched the three presidential debates, I realize that neither President Obama nor Governor Romney represents my point of view.
They are both against health care for all. They are both for massive drilling on public lands. They are both for Wall Street, not Main Street. They are both for continuing the War on Terror, with its massive subsidies. They are both for domestic surveillance and criminalizing dissent. Two peas in a pod. Two sides of the same coin. Their agents have made sure that no dissenting opinions can see the light of main stream media. No third party candidate can appear on the same platform with the majors, even if such a “third” party candidate will appear on a majority of our ballots. No stray question may be asked in public on such inconvenient issues as climate change.
The Democrats and Republicans ensured their monopoly on public debates by firing the League of Women Voters and replacing those uppity women with a cartel wholly owned by, you guessed it, the Republican and the Democratic National Committees. In today’s debates, “questions” from the audience are carefully vetted for just the talking points on which the two parties have agreed to disagree. Deep questions provoking answers such as “You don’t have any new ideas.” Or “You don’t want big change (whatever that is.) Or “You have been changing your position.”
