There can’t possibly be anyone in the world left who doesn’t agree with the Anybody but Bush mantra but it seems that America and the world are willing that a Democrat should win office.
I’m not sure why. I mean what’s the difference really? Just like Britain’s two main political parties, the Dems and the Repubs. are pretty much two sides of the same coin. They’re both capitalists with the bulk of their epic campaign funds coming from big businesses.
And so when the election is concluded and the Dem candidate wins power, nothing much will change. Those big businesses will soon be in there . . . lobbying hard on behalf of their own agenda . . . demanding their reward from the guy they backed. So regardless of all the pre-election pledges Clinton and Obama make about universal health-care, foreign policy change or military spending and stuff like that, the corporate lobby – the arms dealers, the insurance companies, the pharmaceuticals etc. will all tighten their grip.
With US campaign financing as it is, the US government will always be for big business.
That’s democracy for you.
