Tumblr, he’s talking about you! [x]
He’s still complicit in the caste divide between corporations and citizens just like Bill Clinton (his political Alter Ego in the psychological sense). Example: Inviting the Canadian tar sands companies back to the WH after the failure of the approval of Keystone XL, the passage of the JOBS act which despite it’s name only works for tech start-ups that valuate a billion or less and removes SEC regulations that would keep these companies in check (for example, a company sells their user information on the black market for profit) and since these companies are private, they are not under the constant microscope of the companies on the NASDAQ or the DJIA.
The point is, for Obama to keep his job he needs to pay tribute to the corporate interests. If you’ve been keeping up you’ll know that Citizens United plays a good deal on funding candidates. Instead of a Barack Obama that bows to the interests of the likes of Goldmann Sachs, Monsanto, Exxon Mobil, I would LOVE to have an Obama that works for the people.
Ol’ Barry could start with repealing the NDAA, overturning Citizens United and passing new voting ethics legislation, maybe forgiving all Student Debt and a moratorium on foreclosures (though it’s kinda too late for that), turning Obamacare into Universal Care, creating an Internet Bill of Rights fixing the damage his administration is doing to the status quo of Net Neutrality, and if it’s not too hard, maybe a plan to help lift the growing lower class up into the middle.
The Democrats know the above is right but they’d rather save face than let a popular movement turn the lights on in the bondage room for everyone to see. The Republicans are just creating a spectacle before they fall with the likes of the Ottomans, Romans, and Austria-Hungary. Both are guilty, both are punished. Money is the root of all evil and they’ve been winning for the past century, don’t trust your history books because they were written by them.
