Retaking the USA Titanic

QUOTE of the Week

Retaking the USA Titanic

"...[W]e no longer control our own democratic system. Puppet candidates have rigged themselves into office and manipulated our government to hand corporations the keys to the kingdom. We the People are now the rabble outside the gates, reduced to begging the rulers within to please be just a little less ruthless...
"Our elections have been bought or stolen for decades, but the People are only now waking up...But whether elections - or politicians - are literally stolen, or simply bought (including Barack Obama), the outcome is the same.
"The democratic system itself is rigged against us - and this rigging is not just another Progressive issue, like ending the Wars on Terror and Drugs, or securing universal healthcare, or getting the 100,000 toxic chemicals out of our bodies, or preventing Monsanto from taking over our food and seed supply...
"We must first outlaw the use of riggable computerized voting machines and institute a public paper ballot count with appropriate procedure and oversight. We must demand full media access for candidates. And we must threaten a full-blown Egypt-style revolution if Citizen's United is not immediately overturned."
"The Icebergs Cometh: Retaking the USA Titanic Before the 2012 Elections,"
- by Victoria Collier and Ronnie Cummins, August 8, 2011
