John McDermott: We do not

John McDermott:
We do not live in a Democracy, Romney or Obama, both republicans.

voting the lesser of two evils is not a democracy, we are voting for corporations eitherway.

Van Jones is correct in

Van Jones is correct in referring to Obama as a "republican," but his dismissal from the Obama administration was nothing more than a charade, because Jones is once again campaigning for Obama's re-election through the "rebuild the dream" democrat party front.

Van Jones wasn't dismissed,

Van Jones wasn't dismissed, he quit. Van Jones was interviewed on Letters to Politics shortly after quitting his post, "claiming unconvincingly that he didn't want to be a distraction away from Obama."

There's a vast difference.

But what the heck is he telling us about Obama??? Obama was bought and paid for before he got hes seat in the White House. I understand that Obama is leading USA into more wars, more attac´s against the environment, more hostility against human rights, robbing more money from the people and giving it to the banksters......Van Jones was fired because the there is no possiblity to reform the system...

Van Jones wasn't fired, Bo. He quit or "resigned," as he would probably describe it.
