  •  After all the horror that (0+ / 0-)

    the American empire has brought... it is time to say good night.  I am sure the Polish empire would have been horrible to. The Chinese empire is about to take center stage in calling the global empire shots.  Not that I think they will be any better than the US and before the UK.  But it will be different and kind of nice to come up with alternatives that are helpful to those of us willing to build them.  And for once, thank goodness, we will not be electing the leader of the free world.  What a joke that has been for the past 50 years.  And I don't blame this decline on the Republicans. The corportist Dems had a pretty good run destroying what chances we had in building a democratic and socialist state.  But those days are over.  And now time to put our energies to fresh ideas of survivial in a fallen empire.  Many opportunities now and a great time to come up with new ideas.  I think the Chinese will be a little nicer to us than the UK but we will have a big struggle on our hands as they have bought heavily into the corporatist thinking and they themselves will have many problems internally being the super country on top and might just take some of our resources but leave some for us.  They at least until now are not interested in state power in other countries and hopefully will allow us some autonomy to create our suvivalist alternatives.

    Pass new laws to end media monopolization now.
