Political Repression: State Power over Private Lives
Some folk’s doubts and hesitations, and why forcing the vote is really best:
I. Doubted Victory Some people think that forcing a House of Representatives vote on Medicare or All is unimportant when we can expect the many congressional corrupticians to vote it down. I’ll try to explain why it is important: It’s our historic experience of making positive changes. All changes for better took a series of battles (incl. a number of votings). Desirable changes can’t happen when the series of battles never gets started. Yes, the first M4A floor vote is likely to be voted down by the corrupticians in Congress, no matter when it will be held (just like previous good changes were). But, by doing so, the corrupticians will expose themselves and in the next election battle be kicked out (or even sooner). This is like things always went in the past, and they will continue to go that way. It’s just how politics works. With tens of thousands of us dying each year from healthcare denial and hundreds of thousands going bankrupt from astronomic healthcare bills even without a pandemic, it’s high time we finally get this series of battles started. And there is no better time than during a pandemic.
II. Voting Pelosi out of Office Instead Yes, Pelosi is one of the top corrupticians. Finally reducing her corrupt power would be good. But thinking that at the current time she could be replaced with a significantly better politician when our Congress is still almost completely filled with mafiosi types is simply not realistic. She could even be replaced with an even worse corruptician, and if by miracle she were replaced with a less corrupt one, there still would be no significant changes as long as the status quo remains maintained. We must battle for the changes we need, not merely switch faces. (getting Obama and Trump into office should have made this clear for all of us by now; please wake up if you haven’t yet)
And don’t forget to sign the #ForceTheVote petition or even make the time to push your Congress members.
Here is Jimmy Dore’s town hall announcement:
Yes, forcing a vote is one of the weapons for change. Did you hear about the Bolivian people forcing an election in which they then voted the fascist state coup regime out of office a few months ago? After the governmental mistreatment during the pandemic it is high time we Americans finally stand up and show the universe our hearts and fists, as well. Let’s unite and have OUR money (yes, the government money is OUR money) spent on US, not robber barons any more. Let’s spend the necessary portion of it on our health not on soul-less insurance owner profits.
Best wishes. Power, justice, health, and worthwhile lives for the People!

Small compilation from this week because my new continued-education course keeps me busy day and night. Still, I did catch a small number of videos worth sharing, and their more narrow focus on the recent main events does well for this week, I believe. These main issues are the Corona Crisis, UBI-people-funding to address it (Thanks, Tulsi!), Bernie’s main flaw in his campaign, how bad Biden really is, and the ELECTION FRAUD that is currently anointing Biden despite of Bernie’s actual landslide win, and the path to a (new i.e. 3rd) People’s Party:
Stars & channels: Tulsi Gabbard, Kim Iversen, Chris Hedges & Lee Camp, The Hill, Nomiki Konst, Jimmy Dore, TED, and thejuicemedia.
