America is Not Broke, Just Morally Bankrupt

This video of Michael Moore speaking in Wisconsin on Saturday is about a half hour long, but well worth it. No matter your feelings about him personally, he nailed this! It IS time to take our country back --- from corporate America. He pointed out that America is not broke. He states, "Contrary to what those in power would like you to believe so that you'll give up your pension, cut your wages, and settle for the life your great-grandparents had, America is not broke. Not by a long shot. The country is awash in wealth and cash. It's just that it's not in your hands. It has been transferred, in the greatest heist in history, from the workers and consumers to the banks and the portfolios of the uber-rich."

He added, "Today just 400 Americans have the same wealth as half of all Americans combined." Is that not a wake-up call? Or are we really that ignorant collectively? Hey middle-class Republican voters who continue to vote against the middle-class, get over your homophobia and wake up, you will never be part of the elite --- stop voting against our best interests!
