63. Edwards Is The Only Major Platform Caring For Working Poor
...this is why I am for Edwards. I think he is being blacklisted because of his stands against corporations ~ and the corporate media is one of the ones blocking his voice. I love Obama, but the "get along" stuff bothers me. Low income people have been trying to "get along" with the rich and elite for a long time and what has it gotten us? Lower wages, no chance of advancement,demonizing of poor mothers with no support, parentless children (both parents working two jobs to pay the rent with no childcare or help, especially with older children who need guidance), jobs going overseas, no healthcare, hunger, and higher homeless rates. And we are the ones who contribute more of our income to taxes, the poor almost 20% of their income. Meanwhile the rich pay a percentage amounting to little or none so Paris Hilton can buy a $1000.00 purse.

What is wrong with this picture?

Here is a pol you can take that will tell Californians what the rest of Americans are considering. Please choose Edwards and then pass it on wherever you can:
