Great piece on DailyKos. Must read! Contains a lot. Here is gist.
It is time to have the BIG conversation about what kind of country we want America to be, and the lobbyists and corrupt career politicians and the corrupt corporate media are NOT going to hijack our conversation. Do we want America to be a nation where 1 out of 5 children live in poverty while the wealthiest among us get ever more wealthy and more powerful? Do we want to live in a nation with crumbling infrastructure that can only reward the rich with ever decreasing tax rates while our schools go unfunded? Do we want to live in a country that can always fund these never ending wars but must cut spending on everything else?
Now, I know the corrupt media, the corrupt politicians and the massive wealth of corporations do NOT want us to have this discussion. They would rather call OWS childish names or talk about socialism or death panels or ANYTHING else, but we WILL have this conversation whether they like it or not, and they can throw our bodies in jail, they can throw our books in a dumpster but they can NOT evict this idea, this idea that We The People should have the power, not the corporations or the special interests or the politicians who take bribes to do the bidding of billionaires.
We WILL have this conversation. Reform is coming whether the powerful want it or not.
