    1% that so many Americans are terrified of losing their jobs.

    Another benefit of republicans destroying the economy: all the natural things a people should do are hobbled by fear of economic ruin. We'd rather cling on to shitty jobs that take the risk of acting up. I'm clearly in that boat. A shitty job is better than no job at all.

    Millions are in the same boat and I have no bright idea about getting around that.

    I am certain voting only perpetuates it. We go into elections with the candidates we have and the system stays protected.

    The reality is we have to to jettison the life we know and while we all cling on paycheck to paycheck it doesn't even seem possible to stock up for a siege. If I wasn't married, it would be far easier but with a wife, I have oligations that I can't just shirk to go do the right thing.

    The best I can do currently is vote against republicans.

    And take days off to show up at protests.

    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

    •  OK, MAYBE we can get a proper vote-based (0+ / 0-)

      decision 20-30 years from now.

      Maybe Austerity will hurt Americans enough they'll act up.

      I see no reason to suffer needless bullshit for 40 more years just because "its the law".
