FayPax writes: "Since colonial times the economy and the politics of the country have been controlled by the top 1%...because the 99% allow it; even worse, a large percentage of the 99% support it. The elite crash the economy and withdraw huge sums of money from the middle class and the working poor and some Americans applaud them.

Workers rail against the very unions that gave them their benefits and protects them from near enslavement. Indeed, they see no parallel in a sudden push to reinstate child labor, repeal minimum wage laws or the revival of prison labor. If corporations wanted to hire, they would. Neither taxes nor regulations are stopping corporations from creating jobs...they’re holding the nation hostage because they don’t want to pay any taxes, be held to any regulatory standards or pay a fair price for labor.

Congress is weighing legislation that will make protests illegal. That’s so when people finally figure out that they’re being screwed to the wall, they’ll have to shut-up and take it or go to jail."
