Ok, so most figured this weak economy would have blown into full scale depression by now. The Fed has done a nice job delaying the inevitable for three years, by papering over it and hence making the problems worse.
Nothing is any different in terms of trade/tax/monetary/foreign policy. And Im not talking about minor D and R talking points. Im talking about big, sweeping reform. Nowhere to be found.
You cannot stop what is coming down the hill. Whoever gets elected to congress for the next two years is totally screwed. The people are going to be strung along just like they always are, do to massive misinformation from a bought out media.
Whether it takes another year, or they somehow manage to string it out for a few more, the quality of life for many is going to keep going downhill. The only solution is organizing, and three years into this recession the people are still showing no interest in that (Im talking about massive organizing, like 10-15% of the population of your city).
Without organizing, you are stuck with the status quo, which is complacent in this because they, plain and simply, will be taken care of as long as they stay quiet. They are going to do what is best for their families, just as you probably would.
The first step is information taht fights this bought out media. Until the people realize what is happening, there is no point in hope. Educate the masses. When that happens, the solutions will emerge. And the solutions really arent that complicated.
