    poor people who vote for those who enable corporations and billionaires to keep them a permanent underclass

    Both major parties are quite proudly in the pocket of corporate America (those few among them that aren't are denounced furiously and vituperatively as "purists", "extremists", and "poor leaders", see any DailyKos diary for proof of this), and third parties have no chance.  Thus any vote a poor person casts is a vote for their exploiters.  The only path out for the poor, the exploited and the oppressed is away from partisan/electoral politics entirely.

      Dearest ActivistGuy  . . .

      While I concur, I also do not.  The reason I vote for Dennis Kucinich and did in the last two primaries is because he is a Democrat.  I think we must be within to effectuate change.  We need only not give in to the corporate structure that contributes cash.  Bernie Sanders, I believe is also far more able to create change as a Congressman in the past and as a Senator now.

      I think we must educate the classes and the masses.  The people are the problem.  Propaganda, when aware of how psychology is used to shape us, is far less persuasive if we the people only choose to learn and look beyond the flash in the Press pan.
