Large corporations do not pay sales taxes, property taxes, payroll taxes, Social Security or Unemployment. Everyday working people and consumers pay all of these taxes.
If we continue expanding unprovoked wars of aggression, before 2030 we will be in full retreat while rising seas flood nuclear reactors and our coastal cities.

“Bernie the Bomber, Hillary the Hawk, Donald the Dingbat, and Jeb the Bush… offer no plan, vision or useful ideas for this nation. All four are conservatives and have records which prove this. Truth-telling is not an attack, it is a political necessity, tactical priority and the base for any change which may occur.”

Cox is right to point out the need for rent control. However, experience has shown that we can’t depend on our legislators by themselves for anything adequate towards affordable housing or minimum wage. It will take a movement to effectively counter corporate interests and opposition to any humane housing policy or decent minimum wage increase that takes away from their profits.

“In the words of Frederick Douglass, “power concedes nothing without a demand,” and that demand needs to happen in the street, in our communities, in our schools and in the voting booth.”
“Our strategy should be
not only to confront empire,
but to lay siege to it.
To deprive it of oxygen.
To shame it. To mock it.
With our art, our music, our literature,
our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance,
our sheer relentlessness – and our ability
to tell our own stories. Stories that are
different from the ones we’re being
brainwashed to believe. ― Arundhati Roy
