We, Most of All, Need to Get Out the VOTE!!

No, We the People "aren't aware." Learning that "nothing works" and Voting "makes no difference" is the brainwash swill Big $ wants us to believe! Is this a naivete or deception? Either way it's DEAD WRONG!!

Orwell's "Newspeak" and "Doublethink" are in full operation.

Get out the Vote, people!! If it didn't matter, these bastards wouldn't be trying soooo fucking hard to suppress it!! And they will stop at nothing!!!

Here is a nice piece with Paul Kurgman's wife, she talks about how the rich consider themselves to be apart from the rest of us, there is evidence that we have changed as a species over just a few thousand years, we could become two different "peoples' the working class which have a conscious and the 1% which is mostly sociopaths.

And I saw something that stated a large % of mgrs in corp America would be clinically disgnosed as sociopaths. Didn't surprise me after being amongst the corp exec population. (shiver-----)
