Politicians and the media distract us with bogus issues, while we are being fleeced, our communities ravaged. This is not about parties; it's about lies and vulture capitalism stealing our wealth and our rights.

Corporate control of our society is unprecedented! They fund politicians, entertain them; write laws for them, in secret. Steal our jobs, savings, suppress our votes. It's un-democratic & un-american.

Don't like taxes? Then you'll love price gouging! Pay more for water than for gas & food. Toll roads and schools only for the rich. Become privatized!

Medicare, social programs give people dignity, build healthy communities. Those who'd take them away should themselves be replaced.

Unpaid wars, tax cuts for the rich cause our recessions and deficits. Corporations must pay their fair share to sustain our communities, not get fossil fuel subsidies and welfare. They must serve the public good, not private greed, or be dissolved.

The people, not corporations must control America. Don't buy their lies, or unneeded products, and they'll have to change. Buy local, build solid communities that respect human and nature's rights, and stop putting profits over people. There is a better way!
