people selling out the masses in favor of lining their own pockets -- this is what is wrong with American politics
it's not a new concept, either -- but the levels of corruption are greater than ever, in large part because the level of #oversight has been, partly through #privatization, weakened over the past 20 years . . . as long as lobbyists can buy votes and with these votes "write legislation" -- we will continue to see a world in which "big money" rules
but big money is a secondary power to mass movements of people
and this is the missing link to change the direction we're going
remember that people, through collective action, can do great things
and when people, collectively, have said "enough is enough"
then this madhouse crazy train
