Here’s a chart I picked up from jrhirsch:
Looking at it, I thought I would see just how big is the 1%? Answer; 2,268,620 taxpayers and political contributors.
I think if we don’t understand that the 2 million most powerful families in the nation stand to lose some of their wealth, if we succeed. As we get close to making real change, expect the resistance to be great and from many places.
I think the first step is elect people that support public funding for elections, that should be the standard we hold each person to, if they are with us there then work like hell to get them elected when the time comes, if not work like hell to beat them. In the mean time we must find ways to bring public funding to the foreground. If we wait for saints we will be waiting forever.
