Arkansawyers Don't Have a Champion in Congress


For now at least, The Great Bank Robbery (where the banks try to use government to rob the taxpayers) has been foiled by Congress. Calls against the "bailout" were 300-1 against by one account. It was the special interests against the taxpayers, and with a monumental effort, the taxpayers won a single round. The majority of Congress voted against this criminal theft, but what about OUR congressmen?

Sell-outs, each and every one. Marion Berry, John Boozman, Vic Snyder, and Mike Ross all voted for the bailout. This bailout would pledge your future earnings to help pay back foreign banks (like those owned by the Chinese Communists) who were conned by our banks into buying bundles of the bogus loans our banks were making to illegal aliens (and others) under government pressure to do so.

This vote means that each and every one of our congressional delegation voted for foreign banks, our own Wall-Street High flyers, and even illegal aliens, over the interests of the people who elevated them to office.

In addition, both McCain and Obama supported this bailout, so there is no major party candidate who you can trust either. Increasingly, Americans have no where to go as the "leadership" of both parties tries to force the rank-and-file to sell us out to global interests. Thankfully, enough in Congress decided to serve their constituents instead of their "party leaders" that we were able to stop this particular robbery. Each and every congressman who voted against this scheme deserve our thanks and gratitude. Unfortunately, we in the Natural State don't seem to have any of those.

Boozman and the other socialist republicans, Mark Pryor and the hopeless democratic fascists "representing" Arkansas want to steal from us in order to compensate the crooks and liars who got us in this financial mess. They're willing to bet OUR money that there's no economic problem the federal government can't fix, even if they helped cause it.

Vote Green Party-- the only other candidates challenging the Arkansas socialists.

Obama, McCain, Bush- they all support this theft. There's not even a pretense of a difference anymore.

Vote 3rd Party.

Green Party? Challenging the Arkansas socailists? Seesh. The Green Party IS the Arkansas socialists. The main difference is that they are honest about being a socialist. Granted, that is something. But if you are going to vote third party, go with Constitution or Libertarian.

Hello! There ISN'T ANYONE ELSE on the ballot for congress/senate in this state. It's incumbent or Green. I'm going Green.

It is not a vote FOR Green, it is a vote against criminals in office. I think of voting Green as a "no-confidence" vote in the lackeys of the two-party syndicate that are ripping us off.

Semantics. The result will be exactly the same no matter what reasoning you use.

And what "results" will those be? This is a protest vote, not an endorsement of Green polices. The Greens are not going to win these races, but if they do surprisingly well it might just jar some sheeple into realizing there are more than two tainted options.

"it might just jar some sheeple into realizing there are more than two tainted options."

You're not even consistent. First you say it's a protest vote, then you carry on about options. If you're casting a vote of "no-confidence" because you can't stomach the idea of supporting a Greenie, then you obviously don't believe you have an option this election. And you don't.

This system is corrupt, and 99% of the people elected by it are corrupt.

Protest away, they care not.

Of course I am consistent. You must look beyond one election cycle to see it though.

The Republicrats are entrenched, and their position needs to be eroded. Erosion does not happen all at once. It is a process. If third parties get a much larger share of the vote than ever before, more people start to think of them as an option- not THIS election cycle, but they gain notice cycle by cycle. If a party on the far left gets notice, so much the better. We need a challenge to the statists from both directions.

Nonsense. 100% backwards. You will simply affirm to everyone that there really is no REAL option other than voting for Democrats and Republicans, because a Greenie cannot win even in a two-man race.

Protest away, they care not.

I say again for possible penetration that there IS another option, voting for a minor party candidate. It is not an option for WINNING THIS YEAR, but it is an option for further strengthening the hand of those who say we must go around the two puppet parties who run the table now.

It may take more than one election cycle for credibility for other parties to build in the minds of those who don't follow politics closely, but the better the minor parties do the more likely one or more of them are to win next time.

Or is you objection that I discount the chances of a Green win this time around?

Since we're into repeating ourselves, I'll cut and paste my previous reply for your possible penetration:

"100% backwards. You will simply affirm to everyone that there really is no REAL option other than voting for Democrats and Republicans, because a Greenie cannot win even in a two-man race."

And the message that there really is no other option is a message that is true. Again: The system is corrupt. The people it works to elect are corrupt.

You are wasting your time by cheerleading for third parties. You can console yourself by voting "in principle," you can write-in the name of your favorite hollywood actor, you can cast a vote of "no-confidence," you can foolishly hope and pray that you can convince significant numbers of others to follow your lead, but 150 years of Republicrat rule should have taught you already that you may...

...protest away, they care not.

So are you advocating immigrating, American Revolution Part II? What is your advice going forward?

Mr. Moore,

I don't think I understand what you are suggesting. Are you saying that we should vote for the Green Party candidate to "send a message" to Boozman? What kind of message does that send to Boozman? Doesn't it send him the message that he needs to adopt a position more akin to EcoMarxists?

Not if he understands it is a protest vote. It is not a vote FOR the Greens, but a "no confidence" vote in someone who has doggedly supported The Great Bank Robbery.

And when I say "send a message", I am not strictly talking about a message to the current crop of pols. Likely they are too far gone to care, as one poster stridently notes. The message ia to the PEOPLE, and it needs to be that there are more than two parties out there.

If the 3rd parties can do better than they ever have before, then it can be a springboard for the next cycle. At this point, ANY third party doing well is an encouragement for ALL third parties, including those who share my views in a way Greens do not. Perhaps a new party will form, like the Republicans themselves did in 1854. Maybe we could even turn a hand in its birth. Wouldn't that be exciting?

If minor parties continue to poll less than 5% combined, then the Republicrat machine can go on plundering the taxpayers- and that is just what the bailout is- with impunity!

A journey of 1,000 miles begins with one step. This is that step. We must break the thinking that the only way to govern ourselves is through a choice between two thoroughly corrupt political entities.
