    You are not alone.  Many, many people see these same things and are as distress about these things as you are.  

    Interestingly, many people who are conservatives see these same things and are also appalled.  They blame the left while we blame them.

    The wealthy and corporate interests that have brought about these conditions seek to further empower themselves by dividing the rest of the country.  They use all sorts of themes: black vs. white, red vs. blue, native vs. immigrant, christian vs. muslim, etc.

    So how do we the people fight back against the wealthy and corporations.  That will take organization and a long-rnage strategy of coming together and working for what supports democracy.  

    Meanwhile, here are some simple things that you can do: 1) stop buying crap; 2) buy local; 3) turn off the TV; 4) help your neighbor; 5) avoid using the car; 6) patronize the farmer's market; 7) teach your children; 8) participate in your town governence.

    MOST importantly - start thinking about the things you can do rather than focus on the stuff beyond your control.
