Wake up America

93 million eligible voters did not vote in 2012...we have no solidarity. We live in a 70% consumer based economy and we could cripple the status quo with a unified strike, don't buy, don't travel for three days...but, we have no 'one big union', we have no solidarity. Remember, the solidarity movement has worked in many countries around the world...Poland is an example...Reagan even supported the solidarity union, although he busted unions in the USA. We hold the purse strings. We can make change, but only if we all get together and out of our deep slumber.
It’s the truth that nobody wants to acknowledge. It’s so much easier to blame somebody else – Extremists in Congress, the Military, the unchecked Corporations otherwise known as The Bigs – Big Oil, Big Coal, Big Agro, Big Pharma, Big Insurance, Big X – Big Y – Big Z – when the truth is that none of these powerful perceived villains would ever have gotten their power or grown to their cancerous size without our buy-in…our votes (or non-votes)…our taxes…our energy and dietary and health care choices…our “therapeutic” shopping…feeding them.
