Teheran, 11 Jumadil Akhir 1434/20 April 2013 (MINA) – The US government is not democratically-elected and does not represent the American public as it serves the imperialistic intents of global corporate cartels, a political analyst tells Press TV.
“We do not have a democratically-elected government. We have a puppet government that serves as a front for a transnational imperial system,” said Eric Draitser, the founder of stopimperialism.com, in a Friday (19/4) interview with Press TV, quoted by Mi’raj News Agency (MINA).
Draitser said that President Barack Obama, former presidents Clinton, Bush, whomever, they all represent those same corporate interests.
“The fact of the matter is that the United States is engaging in ramping imperialism, perpetuating genocides all over the world, waging economic warfare and subversion against peaceful nations,” he added.
The remarks come as a new poll carried out by the Associated Press-GfK shows that Obama’s job approval rating stands at 50 percent, its lowest since his reelection.
Draitser argued that the rising public disapproval for the US government is mainly rooted in the economic depression that is gripping the United States and much of the capitalist world.
He noted that the US officials are using “whatever manipulated statistics they can” in an attempt to convince the public that the country’s economy is in the process of recovery.
“In reality, [the US officials] try to conceal the fact that we are seeing a conversion of the economy into a low-wage one,” the analyst pointed out. (T/P09/E1)
