Dem/Repub One-Party colluding against public interest

Rocky Anderson
Notes from today’s Democracy Now interview with Justice Party-USA presidential candidate Rocky Anderson
Editing by Carolyn Bennett

one party corrupting, corruptible
Sides against public interest

The Republican-Democratic regime “through its collusion has brought this country to its knees economically, Rocky Anderson said today on the Democracy Now program. Without the Democrats colluding with the Republicans, we would not have engaged in an illegal, aggressive war against Iraq.

Democrats and Republicans grant retroactive immunity from prosecution for clearly felonious acts

Before winning the 2008 Democratic primary for the U.S. presidency, U.S. Senator Barack Obama promised to “join a filibuster against telecom company immunity.” As soon as he won the nomination, he not only did not join a filibuster, he voted for the legislation grating retroactive immunity.

Sides with criminals, against public interest
Reaching the Oval Office, U.S. President Barack Obama said,  “‘Let’s look forward, not backward,’ when it comes to war criminals — people who have engaged in torture, clearly in violation not only of international law, but domestic law.”

The system of government is two-tiered, Anderson said, not only relative to the economy. The courts allow the executive branch to come in and they dismiss cases on the basis of the subversive state secrets doctrine; the executive branch gets to determine whether these cases go forward—victims of torture, people who are challenging illegal government surveillance programs.

In the economy, a very few privileged people “clean up while the rest of us are suffering in so many dramatic ways because of the economic upheaval.”  Related to criminal activity, this two-tiered system allows “this special class of people to escape being held accountable under the law.”

All three branches of government are part of this system, a state of affairs “unprecedented in this nation and completely contrary to the notion of an equal justice system.”

Sides with the money against public interest

“President Obama received more money from Wall Street than any other candidate has ever received in a presidential or any other election campaign and he surrounded himself with all these alumni from Goldman Sachs.

“Not one person has spent one day in prison as a result of the massive financial fraud that we know took place by these Wall Street firms, and the people that work for them, that did so much damage to the American people.

All any of us have to do is look at our pension plans, our 401(k) accounts, and we can see the direct impact of this economic disaster — brought to us by and large through these criminal acts committed by these Wall Street firms and their employees.

Not one of them has been brought to justice under the Obama administration.

Polluting industries make their campaign contributions, the EPA tries to impose stricter ozone standards, President Obama basically vetoes the EPA. He is serving the interest of those polluting industries.

We’d have a universal healthcare system (real healthcare reform) like other nations in the industrialized world — were it not for the corrupting influence of the money flowing in from the medical insurance industry.
embraces corrupting influence against public interest

Corporate campaign contributions make a very good return on their investment. Follow the money and you’ll see why Congress and the White House are pursuing policies that go contrary to the interest of the American people.

The failure of every major public policy issue intended to serve the public interest can be attributed to the corrupting influence of money.
