Don’t worry we are here to help you.
The money will trickle down.
It’s all about freedom. It’s about democracy, it’s about the religion of our fathers.
There is someone trying to get you; your stuff, your loved ones; the boogeyman, the other, the scare. So we build walls, literal walls to keep people out; figurative walls of racism, sexism, homophobia, classicism.
Call you opponents names like: anti-American, socialist, liberal, fascist, communist, for a gay agenda.
Be beholden to people for money, commercials, ad buys, mailings. We can’t have public money, public airtime for campaigns, corporate “people” should have more power then actual people.
Watch out for my opponent he isn’t: Christian, Patriotic, Compassionate, like you!
I am for America; I am for a Christian America, a better time, better values, less to worry about.
We can’t raise capital gains, we can’t end the Bush tax cuts, we can’t end the social security payroll tax cap, what about the job creators? See all these jobs they are creating, how amazing the economy is doing.
Billions, Trillions lost, homes foreclosed with bad loans, but there are no criminals on Wall Street. No! Those people camping with signs those are the real danger. Let’s give them tear gas, let’s give them riot police, even if 911 calls go unanswered.
A democracy, a Republic, at least that’s what America used to be. Corporations are people too right, we can’t restrict their speech.
Koch brothers are much better then a Union brotherhood. The US Chamber of Commerce’s members clearly all have a right-wing agenda, just like all teachers are liberals.
This stimulus will help the economy, giving money to this company gives job, we need to buy this arena or the sports club will leave. What’s ten million, or hundred million between friends.
It’s all so important to the economy; corporate welfare is good, tax breaks are good. But helping the poor eat, the homeless find homes, people learn that’s bad.
Tenure that’s good, teachers that gave up that’s good, having students stuck in failed schools that are more like prisons that’s fine.
We have the best healthcare system in the world, if your Warren Buffett. Where else do people have to call an insurance company to see if it’s ok if they check on a possible concussion. Where else can you worry about your healthcare with or without insurance.
We live in surreal, bizarre times. Hopefully, we all work to be the change we want. Get involved, get active, don’t just #Occupy the couch, or even the park.
We can make the world what we want to be, not the corporatist, militaristic, prison-industrial complex it’s become.
We can do better, we must do better, and be a beacon of democracy, not greed and corporatism.
