Wisconsin has fired us up and is leading the way to change. We the People will be the ones to make the change, not our leaders in the Ivory Towers of our Capitol Washington DC. Chris Hedges in his article “Power Concedes Nothing Without A Demand” is a compelling treatise on the obvious dissolution of our Democracy, our Middle Class. We may not like what he has to say when he speaks of Clinton and Obama but there are truths there. Obama once told us that it will need to be us, We The People who must work towards “…a more perfect Union”, his Organizing for America was formed for that purpose. Now let us lead.
The liberal class is discovering what happens when you tolerate the intolerant. Let hate speech pollute the airways. Let corporations buy up your courts and state and federal legislative bodies. Let the Christian religion be manipulated by charlatans to demonize Muslims, gays and intellectuals, discredit science and become a source of personal enrichment. Let unions wither under corporate assault. Let social services and public education be stripped of funding. Let Wall Street loot the national treasury with impunity. Let sleazy con artists use lies and deception to carry out unethical sting operations on tottering liberal institutions, and you roll out the welcome mat for fascism. ”
