Some will always side with the big power, big money.


Some of us have been fighting against the bullies for most of our lives, in school, in business and now the rich and super-rich, the Oligarchy.

I work at a foodbank and see daily the ravishes from the collateral damage from the rich and powerful looting the lower classes. In the last 30 years the rich and powerful have tripled their wealth while us peons have had to help each other, the poor, our vets, homeless, and seniors. I have family and friends that have lost homes, jobs and retirements thanks to those , living in denial, ignoring the real problem.

I think this race, if won by the wealthy 1% may break the backs of the lower classes and that's why so many of us are fighting so hard. It's literally a war a class war, and if the Oligarchy wins, people will die from lack of proper nutrition and lack of needed health care. More jobs will be lost and wages will go lower. Banks will take more homes and retirements. Most likely there will be another bank realignment where we, the lower 99%, bail them out again.

Clinton doesn't even pretend to want to fix the growing, GROWING wealth gap. Why would she, she has benefited greatly by the system to the tune of $50,000,000. She talks about how growth is needed to help the lower classes. That's code for more of the same crap we've been seeing for the last 30 years. We've had tremendous growth in the last 30 years, but the wealthy have not shared it with us peons. We we need jobs, homes, infrastructure, single payer, and the expansion of Social Security, but most of all we need to stop the looting by the wealthy and start making them pay their share.

Some Democrats that I've spoken to ask why would Democrats side with the big power, big money, over the People, the lower 99%. The same reason they side with the police beating protesters, side with the government when they spy on Americans, side against whistle blowers and investigative journalists, side with Republicons when they invade Iraq, etc. They are authoritarians, raised to revere and never question authority. They can ignore those among us that are suffering and bow to the power. They revere the Clinton Aristocracy and ignore the 50,000,000 Americans living in poverty

1. Don't be silly. They need to preserve enough of us to man the military and security apparatus.

The rest of the riff-raff can be managed by the brutals who still serve a useful purpose.
