Indefinite Detention: An Attack Upon Our Civil Liberties

There are no excuses for this mis-guided leadership what so ever. Let Congress attempt to over-ride a veto. To not even attempt a veto is a sign of weak leadership. Unless of course Obama wanted this "Indefinite Detention" provision to be included within the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act), as other credible sources have stated, then that shows leadership in wanting to violate our Civil Liberties and the Constitution of the United States of America.
ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) legal opinion that over-rides all other's opinions: 

The President has a duty to veto laws which are unconstitutional. If a law is unconstitutional, it is the duty of our President to veto the law instead of signing it, because by signing an unconstitutional act or provision, the President violates their oath of office. President Obama took an oath to "preserve, protect, and defend" the Constitution of the United States all the time, not some of the time.  (Article II, Section 1). 

Signing statements have no legal standing at all, and therefore are useless! They are weak excuses that are supposed to make a President look good when doing wrong.

Why is Obama helping to degrade and weaken our Civil Liberties, directing our country into more of a Police (Fascist) state that George W. Bush started with the PATRIOT Act?

The time for Revolutionary politics and to vote for Revolution is now: 2012!
Occupy the White House!
Occupy Congress!

Senator Bernie Sanders Proposal for a Constitutional Amendment: Overturn the Supreme Court's Citizens United Decision

Senator Bernie Sanders has proposed a constitutional amendment that would overturn the Supreme Court's decision in a case called Citizens United vs. FEC.
The Saving American Democracy Amendment states that:
Corporations are not persons with constitutional rights equal to real people.
Corporations are subject to regulation by the people.
Corporations may not make campaign contributions.
Congress and states have the power to regulate campaign finances.
A corporation does not have First Amendment rights to spend as much money as it wants, without disclosure, on a political campaign. Corporations should not be able to go into their treasuries and spend millions and millions of dollars on a campaign in order to buy elections. But when the Supreme Court rules that corporations are "people" with the same Constitutional rights as citizens, our democracy is in grave danger.

"Occupy Wall Street" Protesters Disgusted With Both Political Parties

"Although their main concern is Wall Street practices and economic inequality, some demonstrators in New York and across the U.S. say politicians from both major parties are to blame for policies they say protect corporate America at the expense of the country's middle class."

"At this point I don't see any difference between George Bush and (Barack) Obama. The middle class is a lot worse than when Obama was elected," said John Penley, an unemployed legal worker from Brooklyn."

"The Occupy Wall Street movement, which began last month with a small number of young people pitching a tent in front of the New York Stock Exchange, has expanded nationally and drawn a wide variety of activists, including retirees, union members and laid-off workers. As new groups continue to organize, demonstrators Thursday marched in Philadelphia, Salt Lake City, Los Angeles, and Anchorage, Alaska, carrying signs with slogans such as "Get money out of politics" and "I can't afford a lobbyist."

"The protests are in some ways the liberal flip side of the tea party movement, which was launched in 2009 in a populist reaction against the bank and auto bailouts and the $787 billion economic stimulus plan."

"But while tea party activists eventually became a crucial part of the Republican coalition, the Occupy Wall Street protesters are cutting President Barack Obama little slack. They say Obama failed to crack down on the banks after the 2008 mortgage meltdown and financial crisis."
~ Wall Street protesters disgusted with both parties - BusinessWeek

My response to this article: Only the Progressive-Democrats within the Democratic Party are fighting against Wall Street corruption. Only Progressives support the Working-Class (middle-class + poor) over Wall Street.

I strongly recommend that we only support and vote for Progressives in State, Congressional, & Presidential elections. By doing this, eventually Progressives will finally be in charge. In the mean time, we must let Blue Dog Democrats and Moderate-Democrats lose to their GOP opponents in the General Elections if we can't defeat them in the Democratic Primary Elections.

So again, remember this: Republicans, Conservatives, Blue Dog Democrats, & Moderate-Democrats, all support Wall Street over us, the Working-Class. Only the Progressive-Democrats & Democratic Socialist, Bernie Sanders, are fighting for the Working-Class. Only support Progressive-Democrats if you support Democrats.

Wall Streeters have been occupying our government's offices as appointees & halting effective climate protection solutions for years. It's our turn & time to occupy!

SB 810: The California Universal Healthcare Act

CA Governor Jerry Brown and CA State Legislators need to hear from all of us that every Californian deserves equal access to quality, affordable medical care. They need to know that we are sick and tired of insurance companies taking our hard-earned money just to satisfy their greed.

They must know that no one should be allowed to profit from people who are sick.  We must tell them that the weak federal health reform law is not good enough for CA.  We must flood the offices of Governor Brown and our lawmakers with a clear message: Pass SB 810 NOW!

Progressive-Democrats (and Progressives) are leading the fight on this, not Blue Dogs, not Moderate-Democrats, not Conservatives.  Sign this petition!

The People's Budget, The Working-Class Budget

Progressive-Democrats are still the minority in Congress, but they are growing every Congressio­nal election.  If we keep voting only for Progressives in all Primaries and General Elections, eventually within the next decade, Progressives will be the majority in Congress.  Then, and only then, will we the Working-Cl­ass see progress (not "change") that we've not seen since FDR's era of Progress.

Vote out the corrupt Blue Dogs and the flip-flopp­ing Moderate-D­emocrats, so we can battle the Wall Street owned GOP Empire and the Conservative Elite and finally defeat these corrupt bastards once and for all.  Fight their power!  Rage against their machine!
