American Democracy — The Funeral
By Anthony Lawson
The Passionate Attachment
September 8, 2012
Once again the interests of Israel take pride of place in American politics. This time at the Democratic Convention recently held in North Carolina, when the Mayor of Los Angeles decided to take it upon his ears, alone, to judge whether or not the delegates agreed with instating or reinstating a contentious piece of party policy which accepted Jerusalem as being the capital of Israel.
It really doesn’t matter who wins the upcoming Presidential Election. Either way the American people and the rest of the world will lose.
