To my fellow Americans, Social justice is missing in America, but we can get it back, if we stand united, nothing can stop us, it's going to be a long hard fought fight, but well worth our effort in the end, we have all seen how Washington DC operates, the 1% are represented by the Republicans, and for the most part, the Democrats look after us the people. I think the one thing that causes DC to be so dysfunctional is the influence peddling that goes on day after day is caused by special interests and lobbyist, even to the point that they write legislation and bills to be voted on, I ask " who's running the county?" our government or the corporations? where is our representation? if your a Republican, why would you vote for a party that will turn there back on you once they have your vote, all they care about is those who will fill there pockets full of money, please do not reward such behavior in our government, demand new ethics rules from these so called leaders we have, if you source back in time in our recent history, you will see that the Republican party was the source for many of the problems, we are having today, I'll give you one example, deregulation of Wall Street, pushed and lead by Republicans, this was done decade ago or so, where did that lead? we all know! this party is anti-American, they desire and wish to destroy all the progress we have made as a country, just so a few (1%) can enjoy a few more dollars in there pockets, how sad! don't believe me, go and look for yourself at the voting records of Republicans and also statements they have made over the years, it's telling. The Republican leaders have said, very recently, that they want to make Obama a one term president, I say, lets make the Republican party extinct, a swear word to be scorned by all, they can't lead, they can't follow, and they can't get out of the way, so I say, lets run them over lol with our votes, this radical right has got to go! they are not good for our country, the last two years have shown that one, it's just sickening to watch, what a great job, all you have to do is just say "NO" to everything, and get paid whatever it is, 175.000 a year, what a rip off for the American people! In closing, one last thought, how far are you willing to go to achieve what we are setting out to do, that is in a peaceful way? make a plan than do the plan what does the future look like when we get there, if we win? I hope it's a better place than where we are today, Gods speed to you all, may we find this path, I prey, DB :)

False premise with the partisanship. Both parties are owned, lock stock and barrel.

Partisan pie-throwing might be good sport, but it keeps you working for your owners.

Cut the evil out by the root. End The Fed.

I agree, both parties played a roll in our disaster, one of my comments was ethic reforms that can never be taken away, that might be a good start, maybe we need a Cromwell, who fires all of them and we start out with a brand new government, just an idea anyway.

Its time we take back our country and not let a hand ful of greedy politicians dictate how we take care of America. Pull back our troops, protect our borders, fund education and health care. Stop all donations to candidates and have all funding for politicians go into turning this country around. We need the world to look up to us again, not look at us with disgrace.
