Flimsy Sanity: Change, change, change

Flimsy Sanity

In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule. - Friedrich Nietzsche

Change, change, change


All this talk of change is pretty funny considering "you don't bite the hand that feeds you". Edwards is the only one that is telling the truth when he says he will stand against big business, so be prepared for no pharmaceutical, oil, or banking reform and the end of a free internet no matter which candidate wins. Check out the contributions for pharmaceuticals, oil and gas, securities and investment banking and telephone and utitlities . And don't think Hillary will fix our over-priced poor quality health care too soon according to this.

Change seldom comes from politicians. Lincoln only became anti-slavery after public sentiment changed; the Vietnam war ended when not only college students but also returning veterans protested and the government felt threatened by revolt. No candidate is mentioning fair, monitored elections or global warming - two things most in need of immediate change.

    I think a Hillary presidency would be much like her husband's. Only with less charisma. Bill did a lot more for corporate America than he did for the little guy.

    You make some excellent points, with good links. I wasn't aware of 'opensecrets.org'. The cartoon was funny, too.

    Yeah, opensecrets.org has a lot of good stuff on fundraising. You can see which candidates still have money to spend. Sadly, that's a good indicator of whether they can win or not.

    We've gone a very long time since there's been a president who was more concerned about voters than multinational corporations. I'm trying to think here . . . maybe Truman.

    I want to believe that edwards is telling the truth. For a politician it might be a first. However, Kucinich asked his voters to go for obama in Iowa (only) because of the hedge fund involvment he discovered about edwards, which appears to lead him away from certainty regarding Edwards veracity.

    However, considering the republican (read that American Nazi) choice, I would love to find out if Edwards is telling the truth or not.
