So far as I can see, the real issue in politics this year is not the presidential election. The election will, of course, get most of the media coverage since most mainstream reporters and commentators are the tame little pets of the 1% who rule us.
Those tame little reporters and commentators will try to create as much excitement around the election as they possibly can. But I think people nowadays are becoming increasingly aware that national elections in America are for the most part charades to decide which candidate of the 1% gets elected. If you are not a candidate of the 1%, you have very little chance of election.
Both Mitt Romney and Barrack Obama are candidates of the 1%. There may be a few real differences between them, but, in general, both are owned by the same people.
So, the real issue in politics this year is not the presidential elections. Nor most any elections. The real issues, so far as I can see, are being raised by the Occupy Movement. Only the Occupy Movement is serious about addressing the problems facing this country.
It will be interesting to see if the Occupy Movement survives the winter to rebound in the Spring. The issues that fuel the Movement are not going away -- so I think there's a good chance the Movement will still be around in a few months.
But what do you think? Is the election the most important think happening in politics this year? Why or why not?
