Our country is in danger of sinking into a modern-day version of the dark ages. An effort is being funded by the super rich to elect their people to seats in Congress or gain appointment to high key positions in our judiciary.
We see tragic changes in our laws. Corporations are now considered human. Workers’ rights and unemployment compensation have already been modified or changed by law to restrict or minimize aid. Much more is in progress including women’s rights, health care and Social Security.
The aim is to subjugate the vast majority of our citizens to conditions much like those which our ancestors fled from. They started our country and steadily improved the lot of all of our people for about 250 years. Now super-rich people are trying hard to destroy all of this effort.
It seems impossible that we’re willing to let a handful of the super rich to take over our country. Let us band together, all of us. Let’s vote in those who promote and protect the best interests of the 90 percent. We can regain control of our country if we do this. We need to know our candidates and vote.
