05/04/2003 Entry: "Feudal lords don't get elected"

"The 'new conservatives' who've seized the Republican Party and, through the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC) are nipping at the heels of the Democratic Party, are not our parents' conservatives. Historic conservatives like Barry Goldwater, Harry Truman, and Dwight Eisenhower would be appalled. Although their philosophical roots go back to Alexander Hamilton, who openly argued during the Constitutional Convention that royalty was the best form of government, the neocons have always been kept to the fringe, nipping at the heels of democracy.

"In past times those promoting what is now called the neo-conservative agenda went by different names.

"The Founders of America knew that for 6000 years "civilized" humans had always been ruled by one of three groups: kings, theocrats, or feudal lords. Kings held power by threat of violence and continual warfare; theocrats and popes held power by the people's fear of a god or gods; and feudal lords held power by wealth and the power that comes from throwing average people into poverty."
The Real War - On American Democracy, by Thom Hartmann, CommonDreams.org, April 11, 2003

Feudal lords don't get elected. Register and vote Democrat.

Thanks, NL, for sending me the article.
