But none of this gets done!

The simple and insulting truth is that a mere 500 or so men defy the will of millions. The very people we elect and send to Washington to create laws that protect our interests refuse to represent us and ignore our clearly stated will on these crucial issues and many more.

Until we confront these play-for-pay lapdogs, they will continue to serve a tiny elite minority of rich and powerful oligarchs and America will continue its slow but certain decline. You and I will live like beggars and America will become a Third World country.
