You are obviously completely ignorant of the movement, what it stands for, and what we are trying to accomplish.
Rhonda, you claim you know your history, but you most certainly don't, either that or you chose to deny the truth. This isn't about socialism, this is about holding accountable, those that have manipulated the system at the expense of others, in order to satisfy their ever growing greed. If you consider yourself part of this group, you have your priorities in the wrong place.
Capitalism has its place in a free society, but so does social justice. The two are not diametrically opposed as the conservative movement seems to spread, as part of their propaganda machine that is known for its constant display of hatred, bigotry, fear, and misinformation.
This movement demands that those responsible for the economic downfall of this country, the people you are trying to defend, be held accountable for their actions. Innumerable amounts of people were destroyed by the actions of the few that have accumulated the majority of the wealth in this country, not through hard honest work, that you so ignorantly claim, but through manipulation, corruption, and flat out criminality. Stop protecting the criminals and start being a human being and fight for the people. Stop spreading your ignorance and hate for the people that have built this country and start educating yourself on the truth.
Take a look throughout the history of this country. Do you know when this country stood as the most socieo-economically dominant country? It is when the people were taxed fairly, meaning they pay their fair share of taxes. The rich paying more taxes is what is fair and how a true capitalistic democracy rises and stays on top. There is no discounting the truth, no matter how hard you, and people like you, try.
This country is on its way down and it is gaining speed. The only way this country will be able to overcome this situation is to rid it of the mindset that you are so hatefully spreading. You think Obama is the problem, when the problem is so much closer to home, it's you and people like you.
A socially progressive country, as America was created to be, should not sit back and allow a corporatocracy to overtake its democratic soul. This country's entire financial system is based on faith, not on actual monies. The country puts its faith in the government, while the conservatives keep passing bills that literally decimate our economy, and our leaders keep bailing out the failed systems, while the true patriots fight for what is right. Instead of doing what is right, you call us names, spread your ignorance and hate, and try your hardest to create a divide between the people. That is fine, you keep spreading your hate and your lies, and we will fight for you. We will fight for every American, it's what we do.
