because other than that single thread of commonality, we're as different as night and day
If you can't resolve your differences, you must build on what is a shared interest. Or the diifferences will tear us apart. At the end of the day, we are all Americans.
We all live, love, eat, sleep and die as Americans. And what the corporate finance system is doing is denying us representation, replacing it with a government of the highest bidder. This is the biggest source of consternation that all Americans can agree on, and rally behind.
They cannot stop us if we stand together on an issue that affects us all.
I am not a fan of the Tea Party, or the GOP. But it is ALL government that has been co-opted and captured buy these disgusting amounts of dollars rolling their way.
