  •  So can we finally admit we live in a plutocracy? (6+ / 0-)

    The system does not lend itself to being 'fixed' excepting to serve the rich.  The barriers to power, the barriers to getting one's voice heard, hell, to getting anything substantial done, are essentially closed to anyone but the top earners and movers of money.  

    I am finding it harder and harder to drag myself to the polls to face the same policies year and year out, the only true difference being is that one party will be more oppressive on issues I feel keenly on, but both have effectively fucked the poor.  I do not want to feel this malaise, I want to believe in the inherent goodness of this nation.  I am finding that hope, that optimism increasingly hard to come by.
