there IS hope!

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time.

We are the ones we've been waiting for.

We are the change that we seek.

We are the hope of the future,

the answer to the cynics who tell us

our house must stand divided,

that we cannot come together,

that we cannot remake this world as it should be.

We know that what began as a whisper

has now swelled to a chorus that cannot be ignored, that will not be deterred,

that will ring out across this land as a hymn

that will heal this nation,

repair this world,

make this time different than all the rest.

Yes, we can.


Barack Obama

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
