Defeat Romney, Without Illusions about Obama
by Daniel Ellsberg - October 18, 2012

“...a Romney/Ryan administration would be no better [than an Obama/Biden adminastration] -- no different -- on any of the serious offenses I just mentioned or anything else, and it would be much worse, even catastrophically worse, on a number of other important issues: attacking Iran, Supreme Court appointments, the economy, women’s reproductive rights, health coverage, safety net, climate change, green energy, the environment.

I told him: “I don’t ‘support Obama.’ I oppose the current Republican Party.”

As always with AlterNet, this article is a damn good read,
and an excellent perspective of our shared Pax Americana reality.

Have you noticed how many articles I link from Commondreams.org?
It's because they do an excellent job of allowing truth to be authority,
rather than like FOX, where authority is manipulatively displayed as truth.

And like Alternet, et al, the "Comments" section is quite often
as enlightening as the article itself, sometimes even more so.

Nailed it again, as you usually do.

I've been trying to express this to many who insist that even voting is complicity in a planet-devouring system that must be dismantled. While I agree with the implied premise in the dependent clause, I vehemently agree with Ellsberg, Chomsky, and many other worthies that an effectual vote against a prospective Repub administration (= a vote for Obama) is an urgent necessity——after which it's time & past time to bring both Congress & the current administration to heel, en masse.
