Voting is a joke given the scope of genocidal blood drenched US idiocy globally. Much, much more must be done. Vote, then strike.................
THE NIGHTMARE OF ALL TIME
So much bleakness. Pain unrivaled and horrors defy spoken word. How much worse will it get? I am afraid so much worse, so, so, so much. How to call to the best humanity has to give?? How many minutes do we have to act and how many will? Voting is not the ticket, but it symbolizes what could be, but truthfully, won't. I am utterly astounded at the hope pinned on a mere man saddled with his corporate foundation endowing him with the thrust so essential for a shred of voice in this corrupt and defiled country. Even if he does live thru the threats and exposure of true red, white and blue bigotry, how much will he capitulate to the killing machine devastating all life and the future?
I for one cannot vote for any who support the death penalty; any who ignore the millions of homeless, the many millions more who go hungry and slowly die before their time of preventable diseases; any who have not sat and listened deeply to the traditional Indigenous elders of this stolen land; any who push the very resource extraction killing the esteemed Dine resisters on the sacred lands of Black Mesa covering the coveted coal both permitted contenders claim can be made "clean" so Americans need not fear sacrificing lifestyle in the least. I can never vote in this 2 party system that masquerades as democracy when it truly displays all the hallmarks of fascistic genocidal blood drenched greed.
The US has now begun it's terrorism in Syria killing 8 civilians justifying it's massacring ways in the name of stopping what it teaches millions how to carry out. Pakistan is experiencing increasing incursions by US drones killing civilians and combatants alike. Afghanistan is in turmoil with an upsurge in Taliban control amid the devastation already plaguing the populace just as it is in Iraq. The cycle of warape culture is unceasing.
Millions of civilian innocents have been killed in the name of 9/11 vengeance. Millions more are refugees. Millions are terribly maimed and how many generations will be born deformed by the depleted uranium and other DNA altering poisons we have yet to learn of. Millions have been irrevocably damaged by the United States of America and we, yes all of us, fund every single evil bit of it. Just as all of us fund the billionaire liars, thieves and jugglers of global economics who dance away as slick as slugs from their dire responsibility in creating the 21st Century Nightmare of All Time. WE PAY FOR THE DRENCHING OF THE EARTH IN THE BLOOD OF INNOCENTS. WE PAY FOR OUR OWN DEMISE. WHEN WILL WE CEASE?
The eyes of the world are upon us. In one week how we choose to behave will signal to the rest of the earth's inhabitants whether or not any of us have the guts to do the right thing beyond this weak sideshow of an election. Voting is nowhere near enough. Millions will be denied the right, while millions more will have their votes disappeared. We know too much about the past 2 elections to ignore this major problem, these glitches of intent. Those worth voting for have no voice, no chance, nothing but wisps of fantasy.... But there my heart lies.
I cannot for one second feel there is an iota of hope when i read daily of the killings in Mexico that have made it as dangerous as Iraq. Beheadings and executions are in the thousands and the assassins hired by the battling drug cartels are all too often graduates of the School of the Americas in Fort Benning, Georgia or US Marines Special Forces Schools in Guatemala and elsewhere. Gangs who are the direct results of death squad mentality in Central America, South America, Mexico and the US are foretelling what we all face no matter how exclusive or safe we may think we are. It is over. Oh, is it over.
One teenage girl meets a man she met on myspace in Tacoma and is found dead. Another 17 year old disappears for several days til her body is found in a lake near Seattle. Her death is blamed on MS13, a deadly gang from El Salvador said to be established in Washington State now according to the article in the Seattle Times. I myself have witnessed underage girls being pimped by middle aged men. Up to 1000 underage girls work as sex slaves along Aurora Ave. The numbers of runaways are astounding to see on Seattle streets.
A powerful family takes over a chunk of land outside Ciudad Juarez to erect a sprawling fabulous compound, burning down shanties that have been there many years before. One home has 2 children inside who die in the flames. Just as the killings of over 544 young women go unsolved, so nothing is done about the thugs who set fire to the shanties. A deep trench is dug all around this compound, a moat to keep the killers as safe as the rest of Juarez killers. Over 1000 people have been killed in Juarez so far in 2008.
The killings in the Congo are escalating again over the extraction of coltane used in cell phones and laptops(what do you think about this Bill Gates?). Rapes are in the tens of thousands and 20,000 refugees have had to flee in the past week or so. In the past decade 10 million have died in the region. Oil, gold, diamonds, hard wood all feed into the free trade genocidal mentality. Juarez is rapidly becoming what the Congo has been for several decades now.
30,000 migrants have returned to their homes in Mexico and Central America since the collapse of the US economy. Many never wanted to leave home in the first place. Now the lack of jobs is felt globally.
Can activists in the US call for and carry out a full tilt strike? How about vote then camp? No work til the troops come home, no excuses, no exceptions. We are looking at the end of the world and are we going to allow human idiocy take us all down? 3 billion a week is spent on these insane genocides carried out in our names. 3 BILLION DOLLARS A WEEK! In just over a year it equals what the greedy billionaires got us to fork over for the "keep em fat and happy" bailout. WHEN ARE WE REALLY GOING TO DO SOMETHING OF SIGNIFICANCE THAT WILL PUT A STOP TO THE KILLING AND INSPIRE THE WORLD? Geez, i would hope to be part of something like that before i die. I would hope..... I want to see this nightmare of all time end. I mean, i really want to see it end and i am willing to do whatever it takes to NONVIOLENTLY put an end to the killing madness of such incredible greed. Why else am i a mother? After i vote, i will vigil all night in downtown Vashon.
Anyone want to join me?
In peaceful struggle,
P.S. I am voting for Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente
