If the political systems has not be responsive to our wishes, how do we turn up the heat to get some or all of the above done? The answer is in the market place. The system only understand one currency: money.
We must use the market and vote with our feet. How? Here are some ideas:
Eliminate or decrease your investments in corporate stock.
Cut down on purchases at corporate retailers and big box stores, use local independent retailers more.
Cut down on your use of fossil fuels.
Insist on speaking to customer service people in the U.S.
Boycott the products and services of companies that are exporting jobs.
Cut your use the expensive corporate alternative method of payment: credit and debit cards, use more cash.
Buy American made products even if they cost a more. (They're probably worth it.)
Bank with a local bank or, better, credit union.
Unionize your work place.
Boycott businesses that support right-wing candidates.
Let other people know you're doing these things and encourage them to do same.
