This video is from the early 1980's.....but in many ways he could have been talking about the state of affairs today. Phony election mandates, warmongering, the U.S. consumer culture, John Wayne syndrome, how America chooses Presidents, the U.S. losing its position in the World....& more. Sound familiar? Are we living in another B Movie today with Bush & Co.? I'd say we definitely are. I don't agree with every single thing in the piece, but I think he is on target with most of what he had to say.
Once again we have a Republican electorate that does not want to deal with today....they don't want to face reality, they would rather hold on to a fantasy of a more glorious past. Meanwhile, issues like climate change, dependence on foreign oil, the changing global economy, healthcare, homeland security and other issues are not being dealt with 100% the way they should be.
And yes, John Wayne would be better today.... Damn near ANYONE would be better. lol
