As in the song "Lawyers In Love" we have a land, a nation with too many in high places willing to do anything for money neglecting people, honor and principle but a change is coming. No more falling for the lie of living only individualistic and independent lives leaving us divided and conquerable by powerful special interests but a people, a nation collaborating for the greater common good in various groups all across the nation. A land of people working together to help one another with a vision moreover as Jesus would have us be. Love, Mercy, Forgiveness, Kindness....something about another Land. The change is coming

Convention Observations and Living Like The 1% Want You To Live

The Democrats need a lot more of Elizabeth Warren and Costco CEO Jim Senegal and a lot less same-sex, pro-choice advocates. The latter two are typically in the Democrats pocket so much on that is wasted time not to mention morally wrong time but thats imperfect politics.
If the Democrats want to win in November they need to narrow their deficit among white males and independents.

Tonight, if they are really smart they will have an avalanche of populist pro-independent rhetoric like that dispensed by Warren tying in how that works best for business and the consumer-not too left, just populist independent- and then a slate of  more white CEO's and small business owners speaking in and around Biden and leading up to Obama.
Have to say how funny it is that so many Democrats are lame in articulating so many of these issues in public but then Clinton gets up and shows how it is done.

Get ready for the tidal wave of corporate wealthy elite super-pac money coming in for Romney. That is, money in the millions and billions if necessary. I say "if necessary" because as you should know the rich and powerful in need of Romney and his servants of the rich can now contribute as much as they desire to get the government they like. Michelle Obama, Bill Clinton and President Obama can get up and give the greatest speeches of all time but if Romney's super-pacs outspend Obama's 5 to 1 and 10 to 1 in the swing states, meaning essentially 10 Romney TV ads coming across for every one of Obama's, the Democrats don't have a chance.
It is sheer electoral psychology. In the minds of those voters watching night after night it will seem as if nearly the entire electorate has rejected Obama and all that will be necessary then is for human nature to run it's course as the polls and votes snowball for Romney.
The 1% will have fooled the 99%. You will live now more than ever as the 1% tell you to live.

And as if that is anything new but get this: As the unlimited money continually gets it's way over time owning all your representatives -and how could you blame them for wanting to survive- the means for the people to petition for their needs will become all but useless until the 1% finally tell you one day that you might as well dispose of voting for it's ineffectual obsolete purpose and waste of taxpayers dollars while making it clear that should you choose not to dispose of the voting process the cost of it will of course be handed down to you.
In the next 10 years? Probably not but...Just where do you think you're headed?

The answer?  Petition now for a constitutional amendment overturning the Supreme Courts ruling of unlimited campaign money. -

I know, if your a Republican you're not listening and if your a Democrat you're not listening because you're all aglow now with great convention oratory but the day after tomorrow you will be listening.
You will be listening.
