Picture your country, "The United States of America"
Now picture that wall that 45 wants to build, right down the middle of our country, only imagine it as a razor. An oh-so-sharp razor.
On one side of that wall are about 500 corporations, multi-billionaires who pretty much control everything, up to and including our government. On the other side is everyone else. Now take the wealth of this country, split it in half, throw half on each side of the wall and then tell me what happens next!
On one side you have 500 individuals and corporations, on the other side you have 325,000,000 sharing the other half.
Makes you wonder, doesn't it? One side is trying to get over that wall, while the other side keeps sharpening the edge. YOU don't stand a chance of getting to the other side.
Everyone says "Capitalism good, Socialism bad" How does it make you feel when you see those numbers and realize how small a piece of the pie you actually own?
I know I frequently go back to Dwight Eisenhower, but the man warned us of exactly the path we are on, The Military-Industrial Complex. We now have constant war to feed them.
Our military, among other things, has bankrupted our country for the sake of jobs. Yes, jobs! Every member of Congress has some sort of facility in their District that they have to protect, which means they spend our hard-earned dollars to prop up this system by constant war and military buildup. How much do we need? We have airfields in the southwest that are full of perfectly functional aircraft, yet they are not used, Why?
Our military spends so much money, even they don't know where it goes. Why?
We are allowing them to take away anything of value to mankind, all for the sake of money. Why?
And who pays the price? We do, all of us. Don't you think it's time to change that? And if not, Why?
May peace be with you all.
