Study Shays' Rebellion. The Revolutionary War veterans were not paid for their service, so they couldn't pay their bills while they were away from their farms fighting for this country. The merchants took the veterans to court, and the veterans were thrown into debtors' prisons and their property was confiscated. Only landowning white men could vote, so the veterans who fought for this country lost their right to vote! The veterans had enough, so they tried to block entrances of the courthouses, but the governors sent the militias to arrest the veterans. The money-power won.

It's time to complete the American Revolution. Remember Shays' Rebellion! Fight for the working people, the ones who actually enlist to fight for this country instead of getting deferrals like the plutocrats do.
