We need to work very hard on getting new candidates elected this November. We have to get rid of the corporate Congress office holders who only work for the wealthy top one percent. We have to overcome the huge amount of money that the rich are willing to spend to keep control of us, the ninety -nine percent of the country. We have to teach the wealthy that it takes more than money to control us. When we demonstrate our ability to vote in our best interest for a better country, and world is when we can show them it takes more than money, it takes heart.
Let’s take a current event gasoline. First, Republicans started making remarks about Iran and how they have atomic bomb capability, and then they start swords rattling for war. In Iran which is very concerned about the sword rattling and an attack by Israel and the west, decides to stop shipping oil to Europe. At the same time, Oil traders on Wall Street start
speculating on oil futures and drive up the price. Next the oil companies raise prices be-cause oil futures are up and shut down several refineries and create a shortage of gasoline. There isn’t any shortage of crude oil in the world at this time because other crude oil producers have picked up the supply shortage because of the oil futures drives up their profit. Oil Companies are raking in the cash; the Oil Traders and Wall Street are making huge profit on their futures, and the Republicans are still rattling the swords because fear is how they win elections. Now our corporate-owned Congress throws up their hands and says, “What can we do about this.” They could do a lot more. Open up an investigation on the oil companies profiteering. Next open an investigation on Wall Street oil speculators. Write a law that would control those crooks and tax their profits that would be unbelievable achieve-ment. Finally, we need our Democratic leaders speak up about this artificial shortage and point out what are the causes, namely the Republicans, but they do not have the fortitude to do such a thing.
This is one reason why we need a change and Duncan Hunter Jr. would be at the top of my list.
We need to change the world and get the big money out of government and return to a government for the people and by the people, not just the one per-cent. It is your money that they have stolen and they are using against you. So wake up before they take what little you have left. JAM
