The economic crisis creates major demand for change

Years of government and media propaganda in America has given the people in America a false vision of what democracy should look like. At this particular point in U.S. history, most of the people in this country are not sharing in the wealth of our immensely rich nation. Eighty percent of our population jointly shares only seven percent of its wealth! At no time in our history has so much wealth been in the hands of so few.

We are a nation that engages in predatory capitalism and the prey is not just foreign nations that we invade with impunity, but the very people that enable this country to thrive, working Americans.

When are the workers in this country going to realize that the Democrats and the Republicans are running the same game? Who is it that finances their elections and puts them into office? The corporations. The same corporations that have outsourced their jobs and this nation’s manufacturing base overseas because it’s cheaper to hire someone in India or China or even Bangladesh. We have unemployment that in actuality has exceeded 20% when you count those that have stopped looking for work.

What do we manufacture in this country except automobiles that many of us can’t afford, as well as military hardware? Is it any wonder that this country has been embroiled in some war or another for almost 50 years?
