Chris Hedges has declared his choice for the upcoming American elections. He's voting Green. You should too. Here's why.
"The November election is not a battle between Republicans and Democrats.
It is not a battle between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. It is a battle
between the corporate state and us. And if we do not immediately engage
in this battle we are finished, as climate scientists have made clear. I
will defy corporate power in small and large ways. I will invest my
energy now solely in acts of resistance, in civil disobedience and in
defiance. Those who rebel are our only hope."
You just can't put it any plainer than that. Hedges is right. Certainly in his homeland but also in Canada it's time to take the tough decision whether to back corporatist politics or stand for your country and people.
