Help! Scarcely a public mention of our sufferering poor as our rich get richer!

America is no longer a democracy. It is reverting to the injustices of the 19th century reformed by the two Roosevelts. People’s memories are short and we soon may be seeing our own revolution as suffering people fight back against our super rich poised to get even richer with manipulation of the global economy and our waste on wars and pointless military junk — blackmail from reps in districts that make such useless things.

We should be letting nations fight their own wars for reform — not setting an example from which they are trying to escape! The Koch brothers and a few others now virtually own the U.S. The rest of the world can see this. And why are we messing with Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq — and what next? Military domination went out with the Soviet Union several decades back.

We now have 1 bridge in 7 that is likely to collapse with heavy traffic. States pay for the damage our trucks do to their highways. And Medicaid is pathetically underfunded.

Only in America do we see a major nation still living in the 20th century.

How sad!

“A war is just if there is no alternative, and the resort to arms is legitimate if they represent your last hope.” (Livy cited by Machiavelli)
