While I agree with the majority of what you are saying, I feel I should point out that saying if we vote for the liberals (Democrats) it will fix these horrendous problems is fallacy.
We must vote for something outside the two party system we are corralled into voting for. Both parties are owned by the same corporate oligarchs, and will do only what they are told.
Both parties bow the the war industrial complex. You will see very few dissenting votes if any at all for the ongoing wars and expenditures on such.
Both parties bow the the health insurance industry, and actively oppose a single payer all encompassing health care system that gives quality care to all.
Both parties bow to the drug companies. We hand out billions to them for research and developement, and then pay more than anyone else in the world for the drugs the research creates.
There is nothing conservative about the Republicans, and there is nothing liberal about the Democrats. They are there to serve the dollar, and nothing more.
We must vote for something else.
We have been trained to stand and point blame at the other side when we are all in need of the same things.
Our main enemy is the propaganda that pits us against each other while they drain our country of all it's value.
Please wake up America.
Love your neighbor, love your planet, love peace.
