I have got to wonder why I, and so many others, keep trying. Considering that "they" are still in power, still stealing not only money, but lives and livelihoods, still destroying environments to increase their profits, still deregulating themselves from us, still being allowed to get away with it all, by those that are hurt the most by their actions. . .
Privatization of resources
50% of the tax-cuts going to 1% of our citizens
15% of the tax-cuts going to .1% (1/1,000th) of our citizens
The largest prisoner population on the planet, and written history
The largest percentage of it's citizens in prison on the planet. . . and in the written history of any nation
The largest deficit in our nation's history
The largest trade-gap in our nation's history
The largest debt to foreign nations in our nation's history
China is about to buy Unocal
Protective laws for corporations
Cuts in domestic social safety-net programs
Cuts in benefits to the troops and their families
Not to mention the destruction of the Separation of Powers
And the destruction of the Separation of Church and State
The complete corruption of the mainstream media
A now proven illegal war of occupation for politics and profit
And no one is in the streets in protest, revolt, anger. . .
I have got to wonder - - Why?
P.S. Did you know that the population of the United States
was ~203-million in 1970, and is now ~296-million?
