Change You Can Believe In

As long as oil companies control our energy policies , as long as the insurers and big drug companies control our health care , as long as the military machine controls our economy ,we can never hope to exercise any control of our destiny as a democracy .

We will only continue to catalog and whine about events after they have already happened until we break the chain of corporate control of our collective destinies as a people .

We must unite and focus the outrage , expressed across the political spectrum .

A national boycott of big oil and a general strike nationwide must now be considered as the only viable way of pushing for a constitutional amendment barring corporate person hood from controlling our democracy .

Anything else is just ignoring the fact that we are being played and the change will never come from voting for either of the two parties at the voting booth .

Lets stop commenting on the news and start making some !

  1. I think we as a people have been so disempowered that we do not know that we can make a change. Our politicians tell us that they alone bestow change and that we should be grateful. But if you look at our history, change comes from the bottom where the people pressure those on the top begrudgingly to move. That is what I want to teach when I teach history. Change and social justice.
