43. At some point if it ever happens it will be because we collectively demand it.
It's as simple as that. I was hoping obama would be the type of leader who understood that power comes from us not corporations in a real democracy and use it to force change.
That wasn't the case. We are left on the sidelines with confusing, impossibly complicated policies that change daily.
Convince folks their perpetual victims of corporate control and they act like it.

We have no farther right to go. How can you negotiate when you already are conservatives as a result of 40 years of bipartisanship and concessions. We will get a conservative bill because we will settle for a conservative bill.

And we will continue to make the same conservative mistakes that will hurt/punish the same lower classes of people.

Until we learn.
