Stop drinking the Kool-Aid; tax the rich 

Atascadero

We have reached a crossroads in America. The belief in the free market doctrine—“Markets will fix our problems”—has become the mantra of the elite. Parity or equality is no longer a message heard in media, replaced by “some day you could be like us,” meaning if you work hard, with great luck, you might achieve success.

The world elite control the media in every form and use it to disseminate their message of fear in order to maintain the status quo. As Americans, the founders of capitalism, we must turn the tide back to the old ideas of equality, long forgotten in America. That we believe ourselves to be “temporarily embarrassed millionaires,” thinking our ship will come in or the lottery will bless us, is the corporate Kool-Aid. The powerbrokers of the world need us to continue drinking that poison; their fortunes depend on it.

Their problem is: the Kool-Aid is being watered down. For every foreclosed home, bankruptcy filed, job lost, another drop of water is added. Eventually we will realize the Kool-Aid lost its flavor and stop drinking it, so the poison of fear will have no effect.
