They stole the equity in my house. After 20 years of work with retirement on my mind, NOW it is worth fuck-all because they stole the economy.
They stole my confidence, as I watch so many honest people lose THEIR homes due to being fleeced by laws and rules twisted to suit the scam artist bankers and lenders.
They stole my pride as I watch hard working Americans lose their jobs to Slick Willie's WTO offshore corporations and outsourcing.
I understand that the course America was/is on is not sustainable, that money doesn't grow on trees, that good leaders are hard to find.
What we have now is deep corruption from the Supreme Court, to the Congress, to the White House. There IS NO LEADERSHIP one can turn to for truth or guidance.
Our hope turns out to be a President who needs teleprompters and official podiums to speak in a 6th grade school classroom, who invites opinions from international corporate leaders but not from neighborhood associations.
We are in our 60's and want nothing more than to be able to sell our home and move out of this corrupt decayed country.
What have they stolen from you?
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.
