I guess the only thing left to do IS VOTE.

– First they came for the unions, but I didn’t vote.
– Then they diverted pay raises for my increased productivity to corp profit and my spouse went to work to help pay the mortgage, but we still didn’t vote.
– Then our combined income couldn’t keep pace with inflation so we went into more debt with credit cards and refinancing our home equity, but I still didn’t vote.
– Then they changed the law and made it harder to declare bankruptcy and get out from under excessive debt, but I still didn’t vote
– Then they replaced my guaranteed-income, professionally-run pension with a hapless 401K plan with limited choices and low returns, but I still didn’t vote.
– Then they cut my sick leave and vacation benefits and stopped the company match on my 401K, but I still didn’t vote.
– Then they passed state laws for Voter ID, eliminating early voting, stand your ground assassinations, vaginal probes, and closing women’s health clinics, but I still didn’t vote
– Then they reduced my work hours so they didn’t have to help pay my medical costs, but I still didn’t vote
– Then they changed an old law and let banks gamble with what was left of my savings, but I still didn’t vote.
– Then they sold my mortgage to Wall $treet, but I still didn’t vote.
– Then they crashed the economy and the value of my home, and I lost my job, but I thought about voting – next time.
– Then they bailed out the banks and one of those banks is foreclosing on my home, but I’m too depressed to vote.
– Then they didn’t extend unemployment and Congress is on perpetual vacation to raise money from the ONE% instead of helping us recovery from the Great Recession.
—– I guess the only thing left to do IS VOTE.
