90. I'm NOT "Anti-Capitalist".
I am working for a return to the balanced, regulated system we had in the 50s-60s that produced the largest and healthiest Middle Class/Working Class the World has ever seen.

Unrestrained Capital will always be able to outrun Human Rights, Labor Rights, and Environmental Protections.
In a healthy system, our government protects these basic rights by placing restraints on Capital.

Our system became corrupt when our government abandoned The People, and began protecting the "rights" of Corporations. THAT is OBSCENE.

The latest & Greatest betrayal of The People was the passing of Health Insurance Reform where the "Democratic" Party MANDATED profits for a parasitic corporation that manufactures NOTHING and produces NO value added WEALTH.
THAT is NOT Capitalism.
That is corruption.
