Why President Obama Is The Best Hope for Breaking The Hold of the Military Industrial Complex

PRESIDENT OBAMA THOUGH COMMANDER IN CHIEF IS A UNIVERSALIST
Universalists who cherish democracy are inclined to do what they can do to create world peace
The President has emulated JFK in declaring nuclear disarmament an underlying objective
The President has a remarkable opening to reduce military expenses
 given debt fears and war weariness

THE NEOCONS REMAIN A BARRIER TO WORLD PEACE
There is no more noxious force now than the billionaires who cluster around Romney
These people are not peacemakers they are inclined toward iron fist world domination
The economic underpinning of their enterprise is the global oil-sprawl economy
whose preservation is their do-or-die objective
Romney eats drinks and lives neocon

A PRAGMATIC EXPERIMENT PRESENTS ITSELF
President Obama has the opportunity to achieve at least some strides
under the cover of debt reduction
He will not trumpet platitudes about peace
But for every step he takes we will be grateful (I hope) 
that he continues to preside

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis

The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
