Good News From Europe
My enemy is not another candidate, it is not a person, it has no face, it is the world of finance.
I'm still nervous, mostly due to the poll that says that a tiny majority of Americans think Mitt Romney would be better than Barack Obama for the economy, about the US election but I feel a little better about it this morning because France has said Non! to the conservatives and Greece has, for the most part, said όχι to them.
The whole desperate blame the victim and protect the guilty worldwide---If you go to France and listen to Nicolas Sarkozy, you will hear him saying the same things Mitt is saying here and so on with all the right-wing nuts everywhere in the world---cry of the right: This is all your fault! is failing. On a grand scale.
True, America still could do something fantastically stupid and dangerous. All you have to do is look as far as Cuba where everyone but the people actually responsible for 911 (George Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, et al) are on trial to see that. But things are looking up.
Because, unlike with 911, we actually have a shot at seeing the people who caused the current depression being held accountable for it. Save for the overlapping aforementioned untouchable criminals but it's the closest we are going to ever get to justice being fully served and we'll take it.
I hope. We might also get the long awaited abolishment of the Federal Reserve and the IRS. If Barack picks this ball up and really runs with it, the upside potential seems unlimited but even if he only continues making the same tiny strides he has thus far, we will still be much better off.
All that has to happen now is for America to say Oui! to common sense.
