    Funny... I don't feel "ruled." Just how do the 1% rule anything?

    Do you honestly believe your government does what the VOTERS want?

    Or what those who invest in campaigns want?

    Honestly?

    Please, just the facts Ma'am ~

    "Companies that received federal bailout money, including some that still owe money to the government, are giving to political candidates with vigor. Among companies with PACs, the 23 that received $1 billion or more in federal money through the Troubled Assets Relief Program gave a total of $1.4 million to candidates in September, up from $466,000 the month before.

    Most of those donations are going to Republican candidates, although the TARP program was approved primarily with Democratic support.

    Companies that received bailout money giving generously to candidates

    I believe political will is balanced against political clout.

    Honestly, its both. Only politicians are more likely to keep promises made to their contributors than those made on a campaign to the people.

    These special interests are of course also made up of voters. Personally I feel like campaign contributions should be made illegal, and I'm almost never for new laws/restrictions. But in this case, I find that far too many people who are incapable of creating or running a successful and profitable business are being given positions where they get to tell those who can make a profit what to do.

    If a politician had to be a successful businessman in order to afford a campaign, we might begin to elect people who wont waste our tax dollars.

    The argument that the 50s-70s were some great time, is an appeal to tradition.
    Nothing but a red herring not really supported by any factual evidence.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    "99%" seems ridiculous. What do you think the real % is?

    Excactly, looking at past poverty rates, we have seen a long term decline. However, people's expectations have been going up faster than the living standards.

    so what? winnners win and too many losers are content to whine and demand the government do something rather than getting off their asses and try to achieve

    btw your claim is a lie-stocks are not all the wealth-that ignores real estate and homes-your claim is misleading
