A Lose-Lose Proposition

At the turn of the century, Americans had the opportunity to vote for two noted humanitarians, Ralph Nader and Winona LaDuke. Instead, US voters split their vote between two undistinguished members of the American aristocracy. After two terms of arguably the least humane of US administrations in history, the voters placed their trust in an aristocracy-approved interim manager, a man who idolized President Reagan–possibly the most  inhumane administration of the last century.

As we look ahead to the consequences of Obama’s austerity measures, imposed on the working class in the aftermath of lavishing our public wealth on his benefactors in Wall Street, perhaps it will dawn on some that complying with the rules set by the aristocracy is a lose-lose proposition.
