  •  It's got a class war. (3+ / 0-)

    It needs the losing party to stand up. Can't t be done to scale when so many are 1) enamored of trickle-down economics, 2) focused on self-interest, not change, 3) resigned, and/or 4) more worried about the President's reputation than the health of the planet, including the economy.

    Add the median effective tax rate, healthcare costs (20%?), education costs, and other things guaranteed in Denmark & Sweden, we pay MORE for LESS. Somebody's gotta pay the billionaires. They don't grow on trees. ☮ ♥ ☺

    •  We don't really have one (2+ / 0-)

      Until we start seeing our lives in those terms instead of allowing ourselves to be distracted into arguing the talking points the media and the parties present to us.

      Why argue about spying? about chained CPI? about any of this minutia (that tends only to divide and confuse), when the really obvious enabler of all the myriad injustices we confront boil down very simply to the basic nature of our society.
