A new study shows majority of poor Americans believe in abolishing the Presidency, the Congress, and the Court of Supremes.

If only.

After some point, working harder makes achieving the goal harder or even impossible.

I am opposing a social order in which it is possible for one man who does absolutely nothing that is useful to amass a fortune of hundreds of millions of dollars, while millions of men and women who work all the days of their lives secure barely enough for a wretched existence.

Yep. And a very recent ongoing study continues to demonstrate a lot of poor white people vote for conartists who will take their money while golfing everyday in a halfassed effort to stay in office after losing an election, just to “check the libs.”

Pelosi called herself a progressive on that 60 mins interview. so…

My guess is that the 3rd Way crowd wants to destroy the meaning of Progressive.

now if our government officials only cared about the fate of poor Americans–but they don’t–if they did we would already have a living wage-universal health care-and many other life supporting things–what we have is the results of capitalistic greed and the government minions who work for the capitalists–which is represented by the majority of BOTH political parties–

but since we keep voting for evil or it’s companion the lesser of two evils we will keep getting evil as our ruling ethics–let us not even mention morality here as the government has abandoned that decades ago(see the continual wars and the decline of our ecosystems for the profits of the capitalists as proof)

Good points all rickshaw51. Yea, how 'come every time the dem’s take the presidency they pretend they’re for the people and guess what happens? More freebies for the rich: tax cuts, exceptions to income, off-shoring of wealth overlooked, no problems with tax havens. Meanwhile, the rest of us are left in food lines that stretch for miles because they screwed us by mismanaging the government to benefit the rich, or just not caring about the poor people & middle class…but were more concerned about their rich benefactors. Something has to change.

This is no longer a country. This is a country club for rich people who when they feel like it they throw bones to the rest of us. I think it’s time to show them what a country really is…what it stands for…what it’s true values are. Their wholesale theft of America must come to an end.

It’s great we agree on policy solutions. Now let us see if we can agree on
politicians besides the money drenched establishment dems and repubs.
Money talks and democracy walks.

Agree, have you a plan?
