Why can people not see the obvious? No one represents the 99%. I see people going on and on about Democrats on here. The Republicans with their sects the Tea Party, and The libertarian Party are doing all that they can to move wealth out of the middle class. The Democrats on the other hand are doing their best to create a neat little welfare state for those recently divested, formerly middle class to live in. We are being driven to a system of Oligarchy with both of these factions, well funded by the 1% doing their part to both build this new world, and to keep us, the 99%, divided until it is too late. The house is burning down around us, and we are auguring about trivialities instead of putting out the fire. Abortion, gay marriage, affirmative action, gun control, issues that divide. After we are reduced to slavery, of what importance is any other issue. If we remain free, then we remain free to hash out those other issues. Instead how about we find ways to unite the 99%, liberal, conservative, left, right, and end the reign of the moneyed elite. How about passing laws that force corporations to share profits equitably, instead of paying employees minimum wage while the top executives and share holders reap all the profits. How about removing the influence of moneyed corporations from government. We can all agree on these, lets do them first.
