The Class Wars

by David Schlecht

So, we’re not supposed to talk about this, but the Class Wars are in full swing and our side is losing. Soon, if the Republicans get their way, there will only be two classes of Americans, the Haves (yes, the Republican BASE) and the Have-nots (yes, this will eventually be everyone else). But, don’t be afraid to talk about it. That’s just what the top 1% want. Be afraid to talk about how you’re losing your income and benefits and how the top 1% keep getting richer and richer off the sweat of our labor.

The ultra rich are taking over our government and for the past 25 years have been getting their pet laws passed, and for the most part, the rest of us just went along with it. What, with the billions of dollars spent on lobbying and on factious advertising, we were all behind the “Free Trade Agreements”. Why wasn’t there anyone from our side standing up and saying, “Hey, that’ll ship millions of our jobs over seas.” But, no, all we heard was how nice it would be to be able to buy Wal-Mart products from China’s slave labor.

The ultra-rich are calling the shots and doing their best to make sure we’re doing with less while they do with “all”. It’s time to stand up and get money out of our election process and get the lobbying leeches out of our government.

It’s time to re-instate the old tax on Aristocracy. It’s time to cut the taxes on the working people and activate the 95% tax on the blood suckers. Keep the playing fields level.
