Each day I see the human evidence of the growing inequity in the distribution of wealth in our country and communities. I am outraged and disgusted that our democracy has been completely co-opted and is controlled by corporate billionaires who care nothing for the lives of the people who labor to fill their coffers.
It is time for working people to take back the country they and their forefathers suffered broken backs to build. The United States of America has turned into a “company town,” and it is time to proclaim enough! We will not accept this any more.
The media may refuse to adequately cover the real issues underlying the wave of public demonstrations, but not for long. Soon there will be no ignoring the reality that the time for change is now!
