Political notes 2 – 10/31/14

So, last night two white males debated while I was excluded. Only the corporate parties were represented. I was excluded even though the Greens are polling at close to ten percent. I wonder what our media would say if Hugo Chavez had done the same? Our democracy is only for the rich and powerful, so we hold a debate where many of the issues that concern Blacks and Latinos are never even mentioned. Not a word was heard about police misconduct! Not a¬†word was said about the legality of all the marijuana arrests taking place presently in the city! Schneiderman was never asked why he never prosecuted the man who misappropriated one million dollars from the Puerto Rican day parade! Fracking was rarely mentioned! Democracy in action, or quoting Gil Scott Heron, “democracy standing ragged in the corner.” The media wants to make us the invisible candidates because too many editors are scared stiff of our ideas. We represent the 99 per cent. Make us VISIBLE. Vote GREEN not the machine.
