Super Tuesday Exit Polls Showed Voters Want Revolutionary Change

Super Tuesday Exit Polls Showed Voters Want Revolutionary Change

by Stephen Lendman

America’s dysfunctional political system is too corrupted to fix. Ordinary Americans understand. 

Half the electorate usually ops out, refusing to vote when no choices exist, no one for high office representing them.

Governance at all levels is unresponsive to their rights and needs. People want revolutionary change, yet remain unwilling to get actively involved.

Indifference lets dirty business as usual flourish. Elections are farcical when held. A previous article said duopoly power presidential aspirants look more like an FBI most wanted list than legitimate candidates, representing monied interests exclusively, not popular ones.

No matter who succeeds Obama, “murder (remains) Washington’s foreign policy,” Paul Craig Roberts explains - endless wars on humanity, including against America’s most disadvantaged, a permanent underclass, tens of millions affected.

America was never beautiful. Democracy is pure illusion. None whatever exists. Voters have a right to angry. Dissatisfaction with US policy changes nothing.

Rage for change alone may work, nonviolent grassroots revolution against deep-rooted fascist rule, tyranny headed toward becoming full-blown.

International law no longer matters. Constitutional protections are gone. All three federal branches spurn them. Bipartisan neocon lunatics run things.

Democrats are no different from Republicans on issues mattering most, two sides of the same coin, indifferent to democratic values, rule of law principles and human needs, their agenda threatening global peace.

Political season is meaningless theater, substance entirely absent. So-called elections are exercises in deception - the same outcome achieved every time.

Ordinary Americans are systematically betrayed, media scoundrels part of the problem, opposed to responsible change, against governance serving everyone equitably, supporting privileged interests exclusively.

The America I grew up in during the 1930s, 40s, 50s and 60s no longer exists - woefully flawed then, intolerable now, heading toward the unthinkable, what remains of a free society disintegrating altogether, full-blown tyranny replacing it.

We the people alone can change things. Nothing else can work. Elections are a waste of time.

At stake is peace or permanent war, freedom or slavery, justice or tyranny.
