Utopian Dreams: Manuel García on the Republican Convention and Gilles d'Aymery on the French Fiscal Exodus
The Republican National Convention was indeed all fluff, and Manuel García's conclusion that "If you're in, you're in, and you know the unspoken agenda behind all the fluff...if you're not in, you're not supposed to be" was proven true this week by Mitt Romney's "47%" video. It's only when the cameras are seemingly off that we learn what the right wing thinks about the rest of us. Unfortunately, García's dream for free education and health care is going to remain just that, and if Obama wins a second term the best we can hope for is 4 more years of gridlock and maybe holding on to what's left of our democracy. Even Ralph Nader has given up on changing the system, so what can the rest of us do? America should take note of all the wealthy fleeing from France as described in Gilles d'Aymery's Blips. Maybe we could do the same thing in America -- significantly raise taxes on the rich so they'll all move to Canada. Only then could the remaining 99% could take control (another utopian dream...).
