“There are two Americas.” “Wake up, America!” – Two notable quotes from Dennis Kucinich, shunned 2008 presidential primary candidate. What will it take to get the attention of the working class?
Do “they” have to start dragging people out of bed at 3 a.m. to start a revolution? No. They already are doing that.
Do “they” have to rob the working class in support of the “robber baron class”? No. They’re already doing that.
Do “they” have to totally ignore the voices of “We the People”? No. They’ve been doing that.
Do “they” have to tax the lower-income workers at an unfair rate and offer “loopholes” to the wealthy to avoid taxes? No. They already are doing that, too.
Well, I guess it’ll take the removal of reality TV, outlawing all professional sports, making alcohol illegal again and closing all Wal-Marts to finally get through to the slovenly, apathetic and fear-filled to get a revolution started in the streets. And that won’t do much good either because our brothers and sisters in black have been programmed to treat us as the enemy.
Cynical? Me? Maybe. Or maybe I’m writing what needs to be written to start some kind of revolution. Cut off the dollars from the beast and the head must fall off. Our revolution must be the withholding of the food of the monster – money. Start now in any way you can. Tax strike, boycotting “imperial” companies’ products, spending less on everything and using a credit card for nothing.
I hope this will bring just one more person into the realm of thinking change. If change does come, it will have to come from us; “they” aren’t going to watch our backs. Unless they’re carrying a knife, that is. Please don’t respond to this with “party loyalty” babble and parroted rhetoric. Our country has declined way beyond that. Our country is lost unless “We the People” reclaim it; there is no help from the government of greed and deception.
