Bernie Sanders: Savior or Seducer of the Anti-War Left?

by HOWARD LISNOWFFCounterpunch

Ashley Smith’s “A Socialist in the Senate? The Unfortunate Truth about Bernie Sanders,” (November 15, 2006) tells the tale of how the political Left gets thrown under the relentless wheels of the military-industrial complex by supporting candidates who do not consistently serve the interests of peace. The decimation of the forces for peace is predictable as they are sacrificed and offered up to the gods of electoral politics. The marginalization in each electoral cycle of the Left is a testament to how relentless the political/economic system is in guaranteeing its outcomes vis-à-vis war and peace.

A few years ago an email communication from Senator Elizabeth Warren, a steadfast supporter of an economic egalitarianism and regulation of the forces that control capital, left me with the same sense of how business as usual about U.S. war making has all but captured and controlled dissident voices. Only those on the fringes (not the fringe of significant and importance) of the political process are left to stand and are effectively marginalized and silenced.

Live Video Interview with Carl Romanelli, 8PM Sept. 10

GreenPartyUS - Live Internet TV

Carl Romanelli petitioned as the Green Party candidate for US Senate in Pennsylvania in 2006. He needed about 67,000 signatures and collected about 94,000. As the result of Democratic candidate Bob Casey Jr.'s efforts, Carl was thrown off the ballot and charged $80,000 in court costs. Since then a number of Democratic employees involved in the petition challenge have been arrested and charged with using public funds to target political opponents . . . which included Carl Romanelli.

Romanelli issued a press release, just days ago, challenging Bob Casey Jr to a basketball match for the money. Additionally Carl asked that President Obama invite him and Casey to the Whitehouse for a beer summit to work out their differences.

Carl's court case to set aside these fees goes back to the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court in a few days.

Watch the LIVE INTERVIEW as Carl updates us on the story. Viewers will be able to ask Carl question via live text chat.
