Graduate with a Political Science degree and a minor in History. I consider myself a democratic socialist.

Our media is controlled by corporations. Extremely powerful organizations, far more powerful than one person, but with none of the culpability. Our government is controlled by corporations. Organizations with a lot of money, whose only aim is to make more, little people be damned. And we wonder why our government is broken. We’re mad as hell – nothing is working.
