    Corporations are just getting by as it is.

    If America is going to be saved, Americans will simply have to work for less and less and settle for less and less so the filthy rich can stay filthy rich.

    Those protesting for more will have to do more than just "protest'.

    This country is YEARS overdue for massive sustained strikes.

    No...I haven't given up on Americans finally doing what will work, but I know they will continue to see 'voting' and using the current political system to 'effect changes'. Voting created the situation we are in: it is fundamentally insane to imagine 'voting' will fix it.

    Over the next 20-30 years we will vote in a lot more dems, many of them 'better dems'. A few decades after that...
    We're fucked as long as people see 'the system' as something that will work for them.
