38. Funny I've posted my opinion of the People's Revolution.

 

First of all, the Revolution or People's Movement is happening across the world. In Bulgaria people were in the streets protesting the damage that fracking was doing to their environment while SoS Clinton and Chevron were putting pressure on the Bulgarian government to continue fracking. This is an example. In South America the people managed to kick Neslies out because Neslies had taken control of all the drinking water and were ripping off The People for drinking water.

Here in the USofA we have Citizens United that Clinton is embracing and using to raise money to gain the WH. The People are against CU. We want to get Big Money out of politics much to the chagrin of Goldman-Sachs and Clinton.

Here is a partial listing of what we are fighting the Oligarchy over:

We want to Strengthening Social Security (e.g., raising the cap)
We are Opposed to job killing "Free Trade" agreements
We are opposed to fracking for oil company profits over people's water
We want to help college students afford college (telling them to get a job doesn't cut it)
We support making major corps pay their fair share of taxes
We want to end the unregulated domestic spying
Also end drone killing of terrorist "suspects" in foreign lands (100 innocents killed for each suspect)
We are for reducing the defense budget
We are for taking a hard stand against torture and indefinite detention.
We support the end of the militarization of our local police forces.
We want to end Prisons for Profits
We support legalizing marijuana esp. for medical use.
We believe in the need for funding rebuilding our neglected infrastructure.
We support single payer health insurance.
We want to see the regulation of Wall Street (e.g. reinstate Glass-Steagall)
We want to break up the big bank and media monopolies.

I don't speak for The People. The above is my opinion. From the fact that you continually disparage The People's Movement I assume you want to continue the status quo. Goldman-Sachs doesn't care about those living in poverty.
