  1. “The time of leaders has passed and the age of governments is ending. We’re not looking to the past but to the future. We don’t need gods and goddesses for we are women – we gave birth to humanity and we’ll solve our own problems.”

  2. I can understand why millionaires would support Romney and the Republican program. But why all the other poor flag-waving slobs get carried along remains a mystery.

  3. The paradoxes between American idealism and the American way of life, with so much fear, paranoia, violence and poverty never ceases to astonish me. With millions of people living rough, there is nothing in this Republican programme which offers anything to them and others struggling..where is the strategy for creating job, sharing wealth, protecting the sick, the weak, the children… I could go on, but there’s no point…

    • “Sharing wealth” is sort of a term of abuse in Republican partyspeak. They have the “trickle down” theory: if you make millionaires even richer, then these millionaires will graciously let some of their wealth trickle down to poor people. The trouble with that theory is that some of the millionaires won’t do that; while others will, but will pick favourites (only “deserving”, non-rebellious poor; only people of the “right” religion and then only the most pious ones; etc.)
