“The campaign that spends more money wins the house race 90% of the time and the senate race 80% of the time.”
“We can have democracy in this country, or we can have wealth concentrated in the hands of the few, but we can’t have both.” -Brandeis, via Twitter
Fuck the people who take pride in calling themselves the “99 percent”. If they stop protesting on the street, go back to work, and stimulate the economy, maybe they’ll begin to make a balance. What they don’t realize is that they have to fight to climb the ladder like everyone else does. Just because life hasn’t dealt them an easy hand and they’ve seemingly collapsed under the pressure doesn’t give them the right to protest whatsoever. In fact, the right to protest was given to them by the men who built our country on hard work, passion, drive, angst, and a vision for a new world. Blood, sweat, and tears. A revolution doesn’t come with laziness.
It’d be nice for that to happen if there weren’t a single open job for every four unemployed people.
