Now that Obama has been elected president, the citizens’ responsibility to our democracy is greater than ever. We have to continue to put pressure on Obama and his staff to fight for people’s rights and benefits – not for the large corporations that have drained our finances and support. The Democrats understand that Obama is president because the people voted for change, and if there were a viable 3rd party they would have to support the people’s rights. or be out on their ass.
We have 4 years to develop a viable 3rd party that would force the Democrats to go back to being a party of the people. We have 4 years to write letters, emails, and petitions to pressure Obama and our other representatives to do their job spending our money to help America’s citizens, residents, and suffering people around the world, all of them. Four years is not a long time, so we have to get to work.
Listen to this clip of Ralph Nader as he appears in an excellent 3 part post-election interview discussing the impact of an Obama presidency and the challenges for the citizens.
