The Wool is still Strong....

.

Many people still bark at the idea that the there is only a ten percent difference between Democrats and Republican and that hey use this ten percent difference to create the political climate that brings about all the political shenanigans we witness in local, state and national politics. However when it is all said and done, and politicians leave the national political arena, it is easily seen that these individuals have more in common than they would have us believe. This is best exemplified in Bob Dole recruiting Tom Daschle for a law firm he heads up in Washington D.C.

If you are familiar with these two old foes, you know that they both served in the Senate with Bob Dole the big wig Republican leaving in 1996 to run for President and Tom Daschle the big wig Democrat being defeated by the Republican Party this past election cycle. While in the Senate they were bitter rivals and the biggest supporters of whatever agenda their respective parties was putting forward. So why would Bob Dole recruit a man whom it would appear he had little to nothing in common with ideologically and whom defeat he supported this past election cycle. The answer is as clear as the transparent political system that has men and women in America at odds over the small difference between the two parties whose ultimate goal is the same and that is to uphold the Empire, but do it differently.

The idea behind these two coming together is to have members of both political parties as employees of the “high powered lobbying and law firms” as to help push whatever legislation through congress these lobbyist want by using the contacts these two old rivals have. Daschle having been the Senate Leader for the Democrats has a great relationship with Democrats serving in Congress as do Bob Dole with the Republican. These two men coming together is more proof that it is all a big game at the end of the day and much like we witnessed in Eddie Murphy movie “The Distinguish Gentlemen” when Eddie Murphy was asked what it is that he supports, and then was told if he supports this they have money from this company for him and if he is against it they have money from the other side for him. The wool that is represented by the small difference between the two parties is still holding strong over the eyes of most men and women in America and that is what makes this story both relevant and irrelevant all at the same time.

It's definitely a big game. Both parties are stocked full of the economic elite. That's always been the case. One shouldn't view Democrats, or the Left for that matter, as a group that wants to tear down the existing political and economoic system.

People talk big talk about "the system" and "the revoluion," yet they live in comfort. Are you ready to eat rats and dogs? Because that's what it takes for a revolution. Don't believe me? Ask Che or Castro. Or Mandela.

As a lawyer, I have no problem with what Dashcle is doing. Why can't the guy make some money? Is everybody at YOUR job in agrement with your political philosophy?

Hi bro! (guess who?)

OK, So I agree with both parties being close to the same, so what about the smaller third parties (green, etc.)? Do they really have a chance and are they much different from Democrats and Republicans? Or is just a matter of time that they too will just be another player in the game to uphold the empire?

Is it better to vote third party? I know you don't vote. :)

Muah!

I believe Malcolm X gave one of the most potent illustration of this 10% difference. He said the Republicans and Democrats were/are analogous to a WOLF and a FOX.

The bottom line they are both DOGS as far as Black people are concerned. They both bite. The only difference is the FOX believes he's more clever and sly and prefers to lay a more elaborate trap, so to speak.

Me, I liken them to a Gentlemen's Debate Society. While the camera's are on they go all out. But when it comes down to it, really, they're doing it all for the sport of it despite whatever differences they may have.

Basically, they're fighting over who has and gets to implement their plan to maintain White Supremacy.

One illuminating illustration I've come to see as a bright light on this situation is how they say American Democracy is typified its peaceful Transition Of Power (between parties) whereas non-democratic countries seem to have a lot of violence...

Well, that suggests (if nothing else) that Repubs and Democ's really believe the essentially the same thing. What their differences reall represent is their different approaches to doing the same exact thing.

Make no mistake about it.
