21. And who is "big money" if not

"people"? People that are greedy and only care about making more money, having everything they desire and the hell with the rest of the "people"?

In a sense we are to blame because we don't know how to fight back. Republicans invented Faux News to feed their masses the lies that would get their puppets elected that would defend their policies. Policies such as "loose regulations", plenty of subsidies, tax cuts, loopholes and shelters for the wealthy so that they could keep more of their money and continue the vicious cycle.

People are responsible for the "system", and what he is saying is that as long as we don't fight back, the cycle will continue, we'll spend money on worthless shit while people are uninsured, barely making it and carrying the majority of the load.

We are beginning to wake up. Obama (while many claim he is like GWB) is making some headway in changing the path this nation was on. The fact that he can't get as much done has to do with the fact that Republicans still control the House, a major blockade to progress, and unless we are able to take it back, things will just continue the way they are.
