What happened to it is:
1. We got fat and happy with our big TV's, RV's, and other crap.
2. Our media (and therefore the majororty of information/misinformation/censorship) was bought out and now controlled by a few major corporations. This by the overturning of long-held regulations put in place to prevent this for this exact reason. Yet another "benefit" of deregulation in support of the "free market".
3. We have been deregulated to death by EVERY president since Reagan in the name of free markets to the point where we've given everything away for free. Was what they intended?
Getting out in the streets. Please. No one is going to get out of their chair. We've forgotten what it said in our Declaration of Independence: "...Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it..."
Time to throw the tea in the harbor. Toes, you with me?
