We're Tired of the Bushes and Clintons
Click here to make a New Year's resolution declaring independence from the two families who've dominated our political leadership for decades.
Our country was born in revulsion to hereditary family rule. Yet seven presidential elections in a row spanning 24 years (1980-2004) featured a Bush and/or a Clinton on a major party presidential ticket. In 2008, it nearly recurred, but a Clinton fell slightly short.
While 2012 was Bush/Clinton-free, in 2016 it looks like we'll see at least a Clinton and perhaps a Bush vying for president, often egged on by celebrity-cozy media elites. Not to mention a 38-year-old Bush (grandson of one president and nephew of another) just elected to statewide office in Texas.
Click here to say you've had it with the Bushes and Clintons, and you’re seeking new leadership and a new direction for our country. And then share this message widely.
Both the Bushes and the Clintons – sometimes using different approaches and rhetoric – have presided over national decline, especially the corporatization and militarization of our society. In the decades of political domination by these two families and their friends in corporate and media circles, our country has experienced:
- middle-class decline
- environmental and infrastructure deterioration
- ever-increasing control of government and economics by a corporate elite
- near-constant war and erosion of civil liberties
- grinding, structural poverty and a racially-biased "drug war" leading to massive incarceration
- government bailouts for Wall Street but not homeowners
- "free trade" pacts that hurt workers and the environment
- ever-rising costs of a college education
If you believe our country needs a total change of direction – which means not only rejecting the Bushes and Clintons, but any candidates who propose to continue their corporatist policies – please click on the following. . .
Yes, I want a major change in our country's politics – an end to the domination by two families, their cronies and stale Bush/Clinton-like policies.
Please spread this message to friends and relatives who are fed up with the status quo.
