I am a liberal; I won't obscure that with words such as progressive, or to the left of center.
I am a liberal.
We elect people to represent us — you know — "we the people." I am sick of gerrymandering; I am sick of partisanship; and I am sick of our elected government not listening to "we the people."
I am sick of seeing people trying to live on a minimum wage and seeing them being blamed because they need help with housing, food and medical care for their children.
The rich are reaping 90 percent of the harvest and the poor, working poor, lower middle class, middle class and upper middle class are losing ground every day.
Yes, we need more taxes on the rich; yes, we need to close loopholes; and yes, we need more government — a government that serves the people; not the rich, not the corporations ... the real people, the poor, the disenfranchised, the middle class, women, children, seniors and people of color.
I hope for a revolution, and I fear for our country.
