Thread Name: BS: Disaster for the Democrats?
Subject: RE: BS: Disaster for the Democrats?
"Disaster" is cyclical in American politics. Don't let it ruin your day. We've seen it all before and we'll see it again....and again...and again. The great game just keeps rolling on, and it gets nastier with each succeeding decade.

The Democrats and Republicans play "good cop---bad cop" with the American public. The public is the one under the bright lights, and the cops are totally in control. The Democrats are the "good cop". They treat you nice, and say nice things, and that gives you hope (unless you hate them). The Republicans are the "bad cop". They get tough with you and shake you down. If you are the type of American who loves the tough cop....think people who love John Wayne, Rambo, Clint Eastwood, Charles Bronson, and all those other Hollywood tough guys who shoot first and talk later...well, you'll LOVE the Republicans and their "get tough" attitude...because you'll figure they're going to get tough with someone ELSE, not you! ;-) Yeah, with all those "evil" forces out there that haunt your anxiety closet.

That's how America is divided and conquered. People instinctively back either the "good cop" (Mom) or the "bad cop" (Dad), according to which one they instinctively run to whenever they figure they need help. Some run to Mom, some run to Dad. Mom is nurturing, Dad gets tough!

The rich bastards at the top of the system know how people do that, and that's why they use those two parties to keep you all mesmerized and fighting with each other. Meanwhile, they run it all, run BOTH of those parties, bank the profits, and rob you blind.

Who do I like when faced with the choice between "good cop" and "bad cop"? Hell, the same as most of you...I like the "good cop" better...the Democrats.

But I am not fooled into imagining that they don't work for the same corporate/banking oligarchy that controls the "bad cop". The oligarchy is your real government, not the bozos you vote into or out of office.

The "good cop" is experiencing some disaster right now. The "bad cop" experienced disaster in 2008. Like I said, it's cyclical. And it will contiune to be cyclical. So if you are a Democrat and want some good news...just wait and see. The cycle will definitely swing your way again in awhile. It always does. It has to.

Every victory is temporary. So is every defeat. And "this too shall pass"...
