Warning: "Consult Your Physician" Before Voting GOP in November

The GOP's official campaign slogan this year--"The Change You Deserve" (see vid clip below)--was lifted from, appropriately, a commercial from an anti-depressant. (Those Repubs love to rub the salt in the wounds they inflicted, no?) Voting the McCain-Palin ticket in six weeks won't lift our spirits, nor will it offer the "change" we deserve--unless, of course, you're famously wealthy and the status quo warms the cockels of your minuscule greedy, hate-pocked heart.

Personally, the hysterical medical caveat issued to November's voters in the vid clip applies with equal alarum to Democrats, that "liberal" segment of the business party running America.

As Ohio Democrat and 2008 presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich of Ohio informed us on 6 December 2006--a month after the November midterm elections--his party's House leadership executed a classical "bait-and-switch" on voters regarding the Iraq War; it was, Kucinich says, the campaign issue Democrats carried to voters to encourage them to sweep Republicans from the congressional majority. But Pelosi, Reyes et al. effectively betrayed rank-and-file Democrat candidates and their constiuents who wanted to change the course of American participation in Operation Iraqi Liberation (O.I.L.)

Meanwhile in DC, the poorest 80-90% of America have no political recourse for their needs to addressed, beyond empty banter and posturing of interminable dog-and-pony congressional hearings aired at 2AM on C-SPAN.

As Ralph Nader for years has tried to tell us, a third party is imperative before needs of average Americans with families are honestly entertained in Washington.

Though with little more than a snowball's chance in hell, former Georgia Democrat congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, the Green Party presidential candidate, and her VP candidate Rosa Clemente offer that option.

While voters finally may be ready to elect a black man, Middle-Class White America certainly isn't ready yet for a couple of strong, intelligent black women who apparently don't remember their "place" in the USA.

Still, if it's important to be able to look yourself in the mirror the morning after the polls close, the McKinney-Clemente ticket is the cure for what ails you.
