    - The time may be coming to literally put heads on spikes.

    Yes the Plutocrats are worried about that. Others think their military and security services can handle it. Which may be true.

    When I graduated from high school in 1962, my husband and I owned a three bedroom two bath house and two cars within two years. Most of the men who graduated with my class had similar paying jobs right out of high school. I didn’t work, didn’t need to. Most women didn’t, and those that did actually chose to work. Today, it’s not a choice for most families, and when those families break up, everyone lives in poverty. When I did decide to go back to college, I paid $79 tuition for 15-18 hours of credit at SIU Edwardsville and we paid a $20 fee to rent whichever books we needed. Everyone could go to college, paying for it with a part time job. …………………………………..Since then American productivity and GNP have skyrocketed. But, Middle Class people don’t have anywhere near the advantages we did. All the money is going to the top 1-5% of earners. And, with the cost of college, it’s darn near impossible to get a start, you already owe the cost of a house before you graduate college. If the American worker is the most productive in the world, and all the stats say they are, the prospects for the young people of today should be better than they were for us. Instead, we produce the highest quality goods in the world—and can’t afford to buy them.

    32 individuals contributed more money in the last presidential election than all other donors combined. That makes it seem like it is impossible for the middle class to have any say in what happens in this country. Nothing could be further from the truth. Those 32 people only have 32 votes. The Middle Class has millions…………………………………………………………………………….
    ………………The only thing that is going to save the Middle Class is the Middle Class. We are the 99%—- that means we have the votes to elect people who will actually represent middle class workers and provide a safety net for those who are trying to get into the middle class.We all need to know WHO is supporting the candidates. That is who they will be working for. They have no choice if they want to stay in office. You have to do the bidding of whoever is paying your way, just the same as we all do in our jobs. So, before going to vote, look it up on the internet. Open Secrets is a good site, but there are plenty ………………………………………………………………………….
    ………………….. If the candidate is getting their money from small donors or from unions, they are going to be working for middle class working people. If their donations are from corporations or from 1%ers, that’s who their votes are going to be working for. They are not going to go against them and do anything to help the middle class……………………………………

    It would be political suicide.

    We must take all the money away from the rich and give it to the poor. We must punish the rich for being rich.

    Considering that the very wealthy have got that way through things like environmental destruction, undermining the economic and social fabrics of towns and neighborhoods around the country, paying workers less than they need to live on, exporting jobs to places that pay and treat their workers even worse, etc., etc., etc., I’d say yeah, take away some of those ill-gotten gains.
