25. Who do you think fought (and even died) to get us to the New Deal?
WORKERS.

It's one of the only things that *has* done any good in this country, and it's been crushed time and time again because it IS the one thing that works.

Vote with our dollars? WHAT FUCKING DOLLARS?

If someone has enough dollars to choose how and where to spend them then they are lucky as hell. Most people in this country (and the world - which is important because our economy goes way past political borders) have little or no choice? They're lucky if they can pay their basic bills and feed their families and hope to god they can sock a few bucks away so they don't starve to death in old age?
