Nader vs Baldwin “Let’s Get it On!”

Posted by Jesse on October 24, 2008

The opening question in this video is ridiculous.. It’s nice to know that those who provided the forum were so passionate about the issue. Good question, but to spend 3 minutes asking the question and then only allowing a minute to respond?! It should have been broken in to parts.

The video shows the candidates responses on protection of Israel, etc.

More videos on youtube and probably cspan.

Obviously, just as the corporate media does in their so-called “debates”, the answers by each candidate can be anticipated and follow-up questions should be on-hand. Fortunately a more open and free debate, like this one, is more conducive to a free society and the questions and answers were closer to the heart of the issues. The corporate “debates” only seek to undermine what they don’t want the public to hear. Special interest pervades.

What isn’t known or agreed upon is how the corporatocracy establishes and maintains its influence. I am of the ilk that it comes down to money. The last thing that should be done is to allow the powers-that-be more power over money. Which means, as far as visible knowledge is concerned….I am definitely in the minority.

Economy? People are still fighting and Dying! The matter is one of War or Peace.

Posted by Jesse on October 23, 2008

I know more than enough to be skeptical of the actions taken, or accepted as necessary, by our “leaders” that I feel like I can safely assume the worst.

Sure the economy is a big issue for people. Not so much because the vast majority of americans are concerned about the Nation being bankrupt, or because the US military spending adds up to more than all the nations combined, but because they themselves, individuals and families, are concerned about their own well-being first and foremost. As it should be.

But the fact remains that tensions are high and the consequences of this governments military actions are much greater. Our fearful leaders would have the populace believe that this nation will ever remain righteous in this fight, and that those, like me, who oppose these aggressive actions are not only unpatriotic but are unworthy of any voice in the national media. Because, as the “neocon death-squad” logic concedes, War is Peace, and Occupation is Liberation.

Only individuals have the power. Until enough people come together and make a stand, peace will continue to be out of reach and war waged in the people’s name. Unfortunately, this is how the system currently works, legal or illegal. People have to take responsibility for themselves and demand a change. It’s supposed to be a two-way street. Right now, it’s one way by decree, and that is unjust and tyrannical.

“The defense policy of the United States is based on a simple premise: The United States does not start fights. We will never be an aggressor. – Ronald Reagan” (Liar)
