  •  Yes, the people have spoken, but who's listening? (0+ / 0-)

    Certainly not Congress. The only reason we didn't bomb Syria yet is because the Republicans hate Obama so much they wouldn't give him the power to do what they were asking him to do just a little while ago.
    The Congress certainly isn't showing any signs of fixing our bridges and roads and schools. They certainly aren't listening to a widespread call for jobs, or for some prosecutions of the people who blew up the economy.
    Congress won't pass legislation favored by overwhelming majorities of the public, like universal background checks or the public option.
    Yes the people have spoken, but until the death grip of big money on our political system is broken, it doesn't really matter much what the people have to say.
