      Dems are power for the 98%.

      •  How are the big banks doing right now? Has anyone (0+ / 0-)

        gone to jail?  Have they been taken off of the public teat?

        The amount of productivity gains going to the 1 percent has increased under Obama, now up to 93 percent.  And a slight tax hike hardly addresses the issue, especially if it's offset by reducing things like medicare.

        No one's addressing this.  Not really.

        Even Sanders buys into the notion that money is a commodity in short supply, and that everyone must fight to get their slice of this limited resource.

        The 99 percent ain't going nowhere until we realize that our currency belongs to We the People and take back control of our right to our national money making machine.

        As Hannah has said, can you imagine giving the power to control the alphabet to a few scribes?

        As long as the conversation remains at the level of arguing over we can "afford", we'll stay sheep being led to slaughter, and the difference between the Dems and Repubs will remain just how bloody the slaughter will be.
