No time to give up

I think we have come to a fork in the road here in our republic. The GOP caught many napping, and others bamboozled by propaganda, and scored many victories in the 2010 elections. They have chosen to abandon a gradual, and seemingly mainstream approach to securing more riches and power for the plutocrats. Their arrogant actions now seem unconstrained by public opinion or respect for free traditions.

Are the Republicans hoping to provoke disorders, which could be suppressed with ruthless violence that crushes any further resistance to plutocratic rule? If this is their game, I think they will lose. The American people are patient, but also stubborn. We can protest, recall, and stand our ground in a peaceful manner. With alternate media we don't have to accept the distorted reflection of reality the corporate media tries to sell us.

The attempted coup was planned in the expectation that we wouldn't notice what was going on until it was too late. It is indeed very late, but many of us are wide awake and more are rising from their slumber every day. We will need to struggle with the same passion that supported the fights for civil rights and against the war in Vietnam. The advantage this time is that with enough education, at least 98% of the people should come to the realization that all of us need to win this fight.

Did you hear about the huge protests today in London? People are starting to wake up all over the world.

Ulysses, I believe the younger generation, in middle school now, will begin to reject the shallow existence they are being offered. They will need encouragement and guidance so I sincerely hope men like you live a long time.
