The US Presidential Elections: Analysis and Review
GR Radio: The Global Research News Hour
“When it comes to substantive socio-economic matters at home, and certainly foreign policy issues abroad, there is precious little to differentiate the two candidates and the parties they represent.”
-Rick Rozoff, STOP NATO International
The US Presidential race is in the final stretch. For months, the campaign has dominated the headlines. Media personalities diligently dissect every nuance of the two major candidates campaigns, and extract nuggets of information determined to help the American voter secure their choice.
Unfortunately, the differences between the candidates of the two political representatives of Wall Street, the banks and corporate America generally are barely meaningful to average citizens. They tend to agree on all the most important aspects of domestic and foreign policy, thereby trivializing what should be a dynamic policy discussion.
The Centre for Research on Globalization has devoted a lot of time and space to examining the election in a broader and more meaningful context. In this same spirit, the Global Research News Hour invests the entire hour examining the election race through the eyes of three regular contributors.
In Part 1, Rick Rozoff of Stop NATO International examines where the two establishment candidates diverge, and more often where they unite on important domestic and foreign policy priorities.
In Part 2, California State Sociology Professor Peter Phillips, president of the Media Freedom Foundation, elaborates on the stories the media are not making headlines, that should be making headlines.
And In Part 3, we have an overview of the campaign with researcher and journalist Julie Levesque, author of the article, Who Will Win the Elections? “The Republicrats” .
We discuss the consolidation of the candidates around the big two candidates, the prospect of the Romney Campaign using rigged voting machines to steal the vote and more.
