I'm one of the common people

I'm well educated

I love my country

I love my family

I have MORE than a fucking clue about what is going on

I'M ONE OF THE COMMON PEOPLE


Even though I dream about owning a new Land Rover, I could never afford it, because I wasn't born to privilege

I'm one of the common people


I sweat bullets each week when I get my paycheck trying to juggle my money to decide to buy medicine or food after I pay bills


I'm one of the common people


I don't sneer at those less fortunate, I put my hand out or give them the last dollar out of my pocket


I'm one of the common people


I love my beautiful daughter, my beloved ex, my adorable sweetie, and all of my fur babies.

I'm one of the common people, and I'm proud to say I am.

Be well

4. This needs to become a meme.

 

Like the "I am the 99%" pics that went around last year.

6. I'm not only common. I'm also pretty ordinary.

And well educated as well.

Screw that obnoxious woman. She has no idea what she's missing.

11. I Agree.

Me and my family are all educated, but poor. The rich that refer to us as 'common' think that it is our fault that we are poor, that we are uneducated, are not aware of what is happening, or that we are taking advantage of the government.

Well I have to say that it isn't our fault, we aren't stupid, we are aware of what is going on, and we are not taking advantage of anyone.

I am one of the common people. And not only am I aware of what's happening, I am suffering firsthand of what's happening.

17. Just not so many self-aware common folks, that's all.

We all are the hero in our own story, sometimes the story has to be pretty strange to make us out as the hero.

19. Proud member of great unwashed masses here!

Even though the "unwashed" part isn't applicable like it was long ago, thanks to the wonders of modern plumbing.

I've got little more than nothing and do not care. I am healthy, happy and proud mom of two young adults. I've got great people in my life & feel pretty fortunate.

20. Common as they come, economically at least

I do think the very idea that people are defined by their economic situation is dispicable, but of course struggling economically will always be more common than being rich. In reality, far too many of our "common" brothers and sisters don't have common compassion, common political sense, or even common decency. And some of the less common "rich" people do have compassion.
It isn't solely about money.

21. Mitt Romney is so uncommon

I mean, who else ties a dog kennel to the roof of their car? Certainly not just anyone.
