Run

Of course you can do something, why don't u run for office and make the changes u propose. U know in a lot of countries, that option would not even be available.

Running

for office takes a lot of money. If you are not independently wealthy then you become beholden to the wealthy ones that gave you the money to win office. Thus becoming the same as what your complaining about. But you don't have to worry about that because no wealthy person will give you enough money to win unless your already in his pocket, so to speak.

Listen to this guy. 3 minutes and 33 seconds of education.

Win the lotto

So u are saying all we can do is complain all day. Nothing in life worth having is easy. I like to think of the glass being half full than half empty.

well

I am not sure what to think. I just feel that too many people think the status quo is just fine. It will never be like the 1960's where you could count on thousands of people to show up just to make a statement. Lucky to get hundreds. The million man march fell way short of their goal. It is going to take a lot of personal suffering to get someone to put down the beer, get off the sofa and turn off the football game and do something.

I may be way off base here but the middle class and small business are about to get tagged out.

Remembering the Black Panthers

They had a meeting place behind my dads shop off of Carrolton. Actually a very cool group of men back then.

If you watched the video it's like the guy said, Change takes time. It took the political machine over 30 years to perfect divide and conquer. Well maybe it isn't perfected but they are damned well trying.

Political machine = Money behind the politician.
