“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

Racism and entitlement politics, now tools of entrenched republicans

Well I guess we see now the entrenched, republican incumbents' strategy for clinging to their seats in November........accuse Tea Party challengers as racists and dangle welfare handouts and entitlements to minority democrats to get them to vote for you. It worked for 76 year old, senile old man, Thad Cochran in the Mississippi senate primary yesterday and other moderate republicans will use the same craven tactic in the general election to try to siphon off votes from their democrat challengers.

When you have republicans trying to win votes by being democrats, the political game is over in this country. It's a charade to make us think our votes matter......they do not. Elections are little more than kabuki theater to keep us distracted from their corruption, graft, and dishonesty and I'm finding it increasingly difficult if not impossible to garner any desire at all to participate.

If I lived in Mississippi, Thad Cochran would never get my vote, I wouldn't care who's running against him. He and the DC GOP establishment who bankrolled his despicable campaign are beneath contempt and would receive neither my money or my vote.

From Wikipedia: "Bread and circuses" (or bread and games) (from Latin: panem et circenses) is metonymic for a superficial means of appeasement. In the case of politics, the phrase is used to describe the creation of public approval, not through exemplary or excellent public service or public policy, but through diversion; distraction; or the mere satisfaction of the immediate, shallow requirements of a populace,[1] as an offered "palliative." Juvenal decried it as a simplistic motivation of common people.[2][3][4] The phrase also implies the erosion or ignorance of civic duty amongst the concerns of the commoner."

Watch the Hunger Games movies, or better yet, read the books. Why do you think the fictional setting is Panem?
