What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

As a Nation we are almost all "fed up."

Are you "fed up?"


http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/first-read/americas-fed-obama-approval-rating-hits-all-time-low-poll-n173271


The MainStreamMedia doesn't want to hear from working people why we are "fed up." Instead, the MainStreamMedia continues to push a heavy dose from the right-wing Wall Street agenda as if it offers solutions to the reasons people are "fed up."


The left needs to push its ideas into the public square so people can fully explore their alternatives.
We can do this through "letters to the editor," leafleting and tabling, demonstrations and informational picketing.


Notice how the MainStreamMedia continues to completely ignore the fact all working class families are caught up in a cost-of-living crisis... this is done to take the sharp class edge off from American's dissatisfaction with the wrong direction the country is headed.


The MainStreamMedia loves to keep hitting at the fact "government spending is out of control" yet government spending on militarism and wars seldom is a topic for discussion and debate even though there is no more wasteful government spending than spending on this insanity.
