Democrats just kick the can down the road and have people deal with it later. Republicans want to burn the place to the ground and pray that God will do it all.
The math is that this country is being extracted through the corruption of the banking system. That's a mathematical fact. I don't want a plan that will start to help the economy in 2017 and screw me and my kids over in the end. And I certainly don't want the government removing every educational support fund to pay for our debt. Both parties over the past 20 years have created this ridiculous economic situation we're seeing right now.
I hate seeing our president trying to be the bigger man attempting to work with congress, I want the president to admit: WE'RE BEING RUN BY A BOUGHT CONGRESS. It is incapable of making an beneficial decision on banking, trade, healthcare, or taxes as long as corporations have the capacity to basically fire a politician by taking away political funding. Our active congress is corruption at it's worst. Yet no politician is grown up enough to man up and do what's moral for the majority and publicly announce how the very people we chose to be in power in our Republic is composed of only self-interested bigots who are prolonging the very corruption they set out to abolish when they first dreamed of being a politician as teenagers. No one is all good or all bad- only self interested; and when it gets to the point where you screw over not only one friend, but an entire nation of over 300 million people is when you are a force truly evil.
Let's also make one thing clear: we apply a democratic concept, but we are no democracy! This is a Republic. We elect officials to represent us and choose for the public, you have no say in what they will do once they're in office. Once they are running for a position, they've got someone with millions of dollars at their disposal to ensure their political victory in exchange for a few favors.
It's sickening to me when I hear everyday-people argue over who has the best economic/political concepts whether its the Democrats' idea, Republicans' idea, Tea party's idea, Libertarians' idea, or your idea sitting at home; while there is no reasonably possible progress we can make in this country while the majority has no say in the matter. The maturity of the masses depends on its ability to recognize its own interests.
Take the money out of politics. That is our demand.
We are the 99% and together we are too big to fail.
