The Power of Your PUBLIC OPINION

Posted on Updated on

What’s your opinion regarding your family, community, schools, political party and government’s priorities? What are you for, for the good of America? Are you for ALL Americans or do you pick and choose? What’s your opinion about Secret Service, Military and Wall Street Traders’ involvement with drugs and prostitution? Which is your priority: who you’re against or what you’re for?

Are your priorities, Education, Women’s rights, an equitable tax code, stopping Backpage.com American sex-slave trafficking, OR Scott Walker, government vaginal probes, Paul Ryan’s budget and anti-abortion without exception?

What public opinion frightens the elite white guys’ Viagra club most as they reach for the Depends, fearing an aromatic future that fails to fertilize maximized Wall Street priorities that crush Main Street thinking? Your opinion? The good ol’ boys should reap what they’ve sown for the multi-ingredient 99%: we the mixture of the complacent, the duped and the enraged, OR that Corporatism’s post WWII money making machine is so ensconced by our fears, vigilante gun toting is our new normal?

Corporatism: The elite protectors of Romney’s financial masters of war manufacturing or GW’s “so called rich?” Are Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Citi-Group, GMAC, JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs Dylan Ratigan’s “Greedy Bastards,” or GW’s “job creators?” Extreme conservative capitalism at its self-serving worst, oppressing the Middle Class into the depressed poor; akin to the straight and narrow world view of C Street House; OR leftover Reaganomics trickling down blessings and prosperity from the puppeteers behind smoked glass board rooms atop skyscrapers of the power addicted?

Myan opinion is, time’s running out to be all we can be, so if not now in this 2012 election year, when will we prioritize human decency over corporate personhood, and resurrect our “Out of Many, One” opinion to let freedom ring again?

Twitter, Facebook and email are today’s Town Criers, Telegraph and Paul Revere, but abusing “The Marshall Plan” to create what Eisenhower warned was a dangerous “Military Industrial Complex” is as un-American as war profiteering from their new and improved product: financial empire through perpetual war.

Between Nixon and Reagan we were lulled into expecting less of industry, government and ourselves, so “Government is the Problem,” could then easily dictate opinions. Thus “The Land of the Free and Home of the Brave” became wed locked to Corporatism’s priorities: rigged elections, voting machines and U. S. Supremes: the dawning of the age of America’s diminishing returns.

Perhaps if we tempered our opinion of being the world’s best in every way, we might learn the Titanic lesson: nothing’s too big to fail, and recapture our path to glory, instead of settling for being all of the people sheep herders Rush, Rove and Kochs can fool some of the time.

Uniformed or civilian, President or wannabe, 1% super rich or 1% volunteer warriors, those who wave the flag to raise the finances to fool “some of the people all of the time,” are neither patriots nor American. Fortunately most of us have little in common with the wealthy few who “had other priorities” when American sons and daughters were maimed in battle, spilling their blood in desert sands to fill the opinionated coffers of Conservative Oil Men.

If the insulting lunacy of “Guns don’t kill people, people do,” proves anything, it’s the bottom-line: personhood of corporations like the NRA creates lobbyists, CEOs, CFOs, Boards and politicians who are the people who kill people.

Your votes, boycotts, bank withdrawals, petitions and blogs set national priorities, express personal opinions and define your humanity.
