    The Market includes companies like Blackstone, who scoop up houses at auction, lightly flip them and then put them back on the market as high-priced rentals.

    This election is a choice between boring corporatists and 100% concentrated evil. Between someone who is indifferent and someone who has literally promised to make your lives SO MUCH worse in every possible way.

    You had your adorable little protest non-vote in 2016, with your “Hillary Clinton just doesn’t ‘do it’ for me” and the result was Donald farking Trump. Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.








  • The end of real representative democracy began when the courts allowed the “corporations are people / money is speech” arguments. Once that happened, government began to represent only the interests of billionaires and their lobbyists.

    It’s taking decades to play out, but it’s going to end badly.
