I had a long essay thought out, but I decided to break it on down instead

Let's stop making the want of the rich and the corporations more important than the needs of all the people.

It turns out that satisfying the wants of the rich will never ever end, and would lead to cutting out all of our needs to give it to them.

We have to ask ourselves, whose country is this anyway, theirs or ours?

1. It's an age old battle MrScorpio

It's no different than the aristocrats pushing back against the divine rights of kings, or industrialists revolting against aristocrats. The warlord, whether military or economic, is going to allow success to go to his or head. They're going to accede to power and they're going to cling to that power until someone wrests it from them.

Freedom isn't free. The battle never ends.

2. There's enough to go round.

If the bankers can get paid huge bonuses for pushing a few buttons, then the rest of us deserve a living wage, decent healthcare and education. We're just as deserving as they are.
