Election year blues

Written as Biden overtakes Bernie in the delegate count…I’m sad that so many voters — understandably in view of misleading corporate media and poor education — don’t realize which Democratic candidate will best serve their real, as opposed to emotional, needs. By poor education, I mean that most social studies (history) taught in US public schools is boring and geared more toward developing unthinking patriotism than encouraging critical thinking and highlighting class and other key issues. If Biden can beat Trump, which I doubt, he’ll be a figurehead for behind-the-scenes manipulation by Wall Street, corporations that profit from war, the NRA, and all the other usual elite 1% suspects. Same old, same old, taking us for sure over the climate change/economic breakdown cliff. I’m sad, but not surprised. What a rotten system; ironically, one most Americans are proud of. We need to, but apparently are not going to, grow up.

About (They Got the Guns, but) We Got the Numbers

I'm an artist and student of history, living in Eugene, OR. On the upside of 70 and retired from a jack-of-all-trades "career," I walk, do yoga, and hang out with my teenage grandkids. I believe we can make this world better for them and the young and innocent everywhere, if we connect with each other and create peaceful, cooperative communities as independent of big corporations and corporate-dominated governments as possible.
