    God-Emperor with all the Powers of The Three Branches of Government plus The Press plus The Executioner plus The Tax-Man plus The Keys to the Gates of Heaven an be done with it instead of this "slow-march to the same goal" crap like this "Super-Congress"BS.

      to keep up the pretence of this being a democracy.
        Hell, Julius Caesar ended the Roman Republic while claiming he was trying to save it.

        If people believe that things haven't changed then they are less likely to fight back.
         It's the frog in the boiling pot scenario.

        us. We, and that's Americans beyond party and faction, need to organize and use it right away. This twitter #fuckyouwashington shows that there's a chance the boiling pot might overpressurize and surprise the chef.

        Until we break the corporate virtual monopoly on what we hear and see, we keep losing, don't matter what we do.

    •  the scotus has already created a "super people"... (0+ / 0-)

      so a "super congress" is the logical next step.

      the current bought-and-paid-for robed masters have (with citizens united) put the final touches on creating an electorate of "corporate citizens" that was started in the 1860's with the introduction of corporate personhood.

      these bastards have been at it for a long time and it looks like they are just about to finish the job.
