We cannot "win" by operating within the system anymore. It's over. [View all]

The 1% owns has all the money (Citizen's United, etc), the SCOTUS, the media. They have successfully brainwashed enough of the population to where they have a critical mass of zombies doing their will. It's now a full on sucker's game, and the 1% is the house. We don't even really know if our votes are counted honestly and when we try to get our leaders to implement a transparent voting system, they completely ignore us.

I'm not saying don't vote, I do believe that we can still do some good by voting. I am saying it would be wise for everyone that cares about freedom, democracy, and equality to begin to seriously consider alternative methods for regaining our democracy from somewhere outside of the system.

We cannot get our game back by working within the system.

It has, clearly, become impossible. This is not your grandma's government.
