The two-party U.S. system is political theater designed to promote powerful interests who stand above and behind the parties.
Consortium News is dedicated to challenging the bi-partisan political class that dominates the U.S. and seeks to dominate the world. The unsophisticated and deceptive mainstream thinking would have us believe the two major U.S. parties have completely different visions of the world.
On some domestic issues that is largely true: abortion and guns come to mind. But on foreign affairs, both parties are driven by interests more powerful than the political authority invested in them and their aim is the same: expand U.S. global dominance, economically, politically and militarily to further enrich America’s rulers with no regard for the democratic rights of peoples. Just look at how many democracies the U.S. has overthrown to install dictators.
If you think there’s something radically wrong with this picture, please support a source of news and analysis that sees through the partisan subterfuge with a donation during the last week of Consortium News‘ Winter Fund Drive. Thanks.
