Chrissy Throws a Hissy
"I am tired of living in a country where 16-year-old girls die because insurance company profits are more important than human life.
"I am tired of a government that runs offshore penal colonies where the detained are tortured and denied the basic protections of the Geneva Convention.
"I am tired of living in a state that makes war against countries that do not threaten us.
"I am tired of watching basic constitutional rights, such as the right to privacy, taken away from citizens."
Question: What country do you think Chris Hedges lives in? Russia? Cuba?
Actually he lives in the nightmare that is the United States of America.
He is the author of a book called "American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America." I haven't read it but I bet it's really good.
Because he's so tired of living in such an awful country, Chris is voting for Dennis Kucinich for President.
If you don't know who Dennis Kucinich is, here is a picture of him.
If only more people would vote for Dennis, America would be a nice place to live, instead of this hell hole.
But Americans are stupid. Many of them don't know that they are living in a concentration camp run by corporate fascists. Or they don't care.
And so it looks like Dennis Kucinich is not going to be our next president.
This is terrible.
What will Chris Hedges do? Move to a nicer, more respectable country? Like Venezuela?
I hope not. What would we do without him?
