“We know that our enemies are not other poor people abroad. Our enemies are the people that laid us off from our jobs, that denied us healthcare, that make it impossible to get an education. Our enemies are not in the poorest countries on the planet, but right here in the richest one.”
I didn’t find the Facebook video from which this quote is taken (https://www.facebook.com/peacereportnow/videos/388409074826726/) on YouTube so it would play on this page when linked to, but here is another good one. Whether the same guy (Mike Prysner) is in it or not, it carries the same message ringing so very true:

A quote from this one: “The ruling class, the billionaires who profit from human suffering, care only about expanding their wealth and controlling the world economy.”
Yes, we have a class war in the U.S., my friends. However, it was brought upon us from the top. The ones at the top of a society organized as a pyramid scheme of economic and political power just couldn’t ever have enough. Insatiable greed drove them to grab ever more and more until by now half of all Americans must share a mere 1% of our jointly produced nation’s wealth, and the net wealth of many people in the lowest 20% is actually negative because of debt. Not only have they grabbed most of our jointly produced wealth, think also of what little we get of the natural resources (like living space) which are produced by nobody and therefore shouldn’t be “owned” by any king of the dung heap with the rest of us paying rent and fees to him because he crawled out of the “right” womb. The robber billionaires use war profiteering, predatory banking, corporate ownership, and government rigging to expand their “ownership” and power.
It is time Americans resist the rigged system and mobilize to change it. Our American dream has become a delusion used to lull us into sleep. Let those of us who have awoken wake up the others. The American Dream of liberty and justice for all (and prosperity because there can be no liberty or justice in poverty) isn’t real, but we can make it real!
