In a democracy, things of great importance, or of any importance at all, should be fairly voted on.
In a society that rewards and reinforces greed with power, fairness is not an option.

You have no say. You claim that you have freedom of speech? Ha! Only if the people paying the government say you do!
Does this all depress you? NO, don't take some vitamin D, don't go out in the sun! Take some paxil instead!

You don't matter. Your outrage doesn't matter. And it never will until we collapse the greed-mongers- not the government, but the corporations.
