It would be interesting as if mine (New York) is included then some form of activism is in order.

I think you’ll all agree that government officials can be bought and sold like furniture nowadays– so why give government power over anything more than basic defense and protection of rights? Anyone who argues for more power for the government is either obtuse or stands something to gain from corruption.

Never in human history have the wealthy ever shared their wealth willingly. The people in power, be they a Duke or a CEO, will only worry about the poor when they are forced to. All the talk in the world nor all the suffering in the world has ever convince people in power to willingly give up their money/ power. Do you seriously think the Cheneys of the United States give a damn about the middle class, really?
The rich are sorry, heartless bastards who own this country and the only way the average John Doe will have a say in what really goes on is through a revolution.

While Obama tries to fix this horrendous swing of income, the right declares that it is class warfare and insists on continuing in the same direction, even though it will eventually lead to mass insurrection and real warfare. This is true greed. Even in the face of potential loss to all the right will take that chance and continue on for total world domination. I feel the rewards reaped will be a booby prize.

I definitely agree with that. But who do I vote for? Romney is only going to help out himself and Obama has been all talk the past four years.. what should I do? haha

One point that I would like to better understand is why so many people vote against reforms that would help them personally? For example, why would a blue collar worker struggling to support a family vote against tax reform, or an increase in capital gains tax, or health care…. I just can’t understand it?

Several decades ago, Margaret Thatcher claimed: “There is no alternative”. She was referring to capitalism. Today, this negative attitude still persists.

I would like to offer an alternative to capitalism for the American people to consider. Please click on the following link. It will take you to an essay titled: “Home of the Brave?” which was published by the Athenaeum Library of Philosophy:

It is about how much money I do not have.

He is one of us and will turn this around for the 90% by giving tax breaks to the top 10% and reducing their IRS audits.

Oh….wait…that is what got us in this mess in the first place.
