Prepare to be Pissed Off
I'm not going to give a detailed chapter by chapter review because there just isn't enough space or time to cover all of the information packed in this book. Instead, I'm going to sum it up as clearly as I can in just a sentence or two:
Our country is controlled by a super wealthy minority who have rigged the rules in their favor while at the same time convinced the majority of us that it is in our best interest. In other words, they are screwing us against our will yet have convinced us that we enjoy it.
The rules and laws are gradually being written to benefit the few at the expense of the majority. And this includes both Republicans and Democrats. Yes, we may long for the days of Clinton, but he was no Saint of the working class. Until we can elect representatives who really want to make government responsible to "We the People", expect the trend to continue. How many more jobs will have to be shipped overseas? How many more people will have to go without health insurance? How many tax cuts for the rich will we be willing to trade for our public schools and our environment?
Hopefully the majority will come to its senses long before it realizes just how much they have already lost. Turn off those TVs. It doesn't matter if Brittney is in rehab again or some has-been Playboy bunny has died. Learn to think again and then start asking questions. Politicians pandering to your emotional and religious sensibilities may make you feel good about them, but ask yourself, "What have they done for me lately?" Chances are, absolutely nothing.
