To say that the Obama administrations legacy is one to celebrate rather than one of corporate patronage is the proverbial attempt to say there is little difference between GMOs and organic vegetables.
That isn’t to say a measure of good hasn’t been accomplished but rather it is examining the overall picture that places things in context.
A starting point could be the fact that the Obama campaign collected more super pac money than any other campaign in history – which by any metric translates to political indebtedness and cronyism.
A second consideration would be to look at the appointment of Goldman Sachs and former Wall Streeters to important positions in government – Payments on the accrued debt?
There is a long list of agendas and appointments that speak to a determined effort to steer the nation towards becoming a full blown and blatant corporatocracy.
Not least among these efforts is the promotion of TTIP, the Transatlantic Trade Investment Partnership, that will have a more devastation impact than Nafta has.
The TTIP is singularly about globalization with corporations at the helm – it is about money, greed, control, and above all the power to steer the course of markets and nations.
It is about the continued disenfranchisement of the individual, national sovereignty, and anything even vaguely resembling the will of the people.
A Pandora’s box that once opened will release nothing but trouble and will in a number of ways further enslave the population of every nation signator.
TTIP isn’t about a “partnership” in the conventional sense, it’s about attempting to put lipstick on a pig and making a silk purse out of a sow’s ear that amounts to nothing more than a global criminal enterprise noted for crimes against the common good and humanity.
