Cut-and-dried “conspiracy against the American people”

 DemRepubs post-election agenda set ─ Damon
Editing by Carolyn Bennett

“The real decision in the 2012 election,” Andre Damon writes at today’s World Socialist Web Site, “is not which millionaire tool of Wall Street to vote for.
“The real decision facing workers, youth, and students is to take up the challenge to build a political movement of the working class ─ independent of both big business parties, and fight for socialism.”

The elections one week from today are a conspiracy against the American people.

On all the issues of central concern to the ruling class, the two candidates are united.

Whoever is elected, the same basic policy will be pursued.

Instead of using the months’ long campaign to openly discuss critical policies before the American people, the Republican and Democratic campaigners for the U.S. presidency have “stage-managed the campaign to camouflage and conceal the reactionary agenda to be implemented once the formality of a vote is out of the way”: … a continuing assault on democratic rights bound up with the expansion of war abroad and the intensification of class war at home.

During the Republican and Democratic campaign, there was no discussion “of the advanced state of preparations for war against Iran,” Damon writes, a war [that] could quickly develop into a regional conflagration enveloping the entire Middle East and sparking a confrontation between the United States and Russia and/or China, with incalculable consequences.”

The political agenda post election has already been set, regardless to which of the [Democratic/Republican] big-business candidates wins. There is bipartisan agreement on policies set by the corporate-financial elite that controls Democratic and Republican parties:

(1) New military interventions and wars,
(2) Further attacks on democratic rights,
(3) Unprecedented cuts in basic social programs.

The Democratic and Republican candidates are united “on all issues of central concern to the ruling class,” Damon says. These men’s pre-November 6 agenda is “a conspiracy against the American people.”
