We no longer have independent candidates representing the views of the electorate; rather, we have two corporate brands fighting for market share – the only tangible difference between the two is the advertising (campaign promises). Obama (Pepsi) promises to be the “choice of a new generation,” while McCain (Coca-Cola Classic) declares that he’s “the real thing.” But while the two products may taste slightly different, they both consist of the same basic ingredients.
For example, both Sens. Obama and McCain spent ample television time during the debates pledging to end “corporate welfare” as we know it. Sounds great, but only if voters ignore that both candidates (as well as VP nominee Joe Biden) just voted to spend hundreds of billions of taxpayers dollars to bail out giant corporations like AIG, General Motors and Chrysler.
The “change” Obama refers to is merely a flavor of fascism.
