    Until we restore government "by, of, and for the people" no other change is possible.

    Climate change legislation?  The oligarchy has no interest in that.
    Health care reform?  The oligarchy has no interest in that.
    Addressing poverty?  The oligarchy has no interest in that.
    Equality for all?  The oligarchy has no interest in that.
    Restoration of habeas corpus?  The oligarchy has no interest in that.
    Peace in our lifetime?  The oligarchy has no interest in that.

    2 things motivate the oligarchy--Fear and Greed.
    Until they Fear us, their Greed will continue raping us.
    Until we're willing to take a day off work here and there to stand in the streets and have our numbers be counted, no election will save us.

    Politicians are NOT leaders.  They drive around in their convertibles looking for large groups of people.  They then drive to the front and announce that they're leading a parade.  If you are waiting for a political leader to start the change, you're waiting in vain.

    Be the parade.

    We kidnap. We torture. It's our policy. Embrace it or end it!
