We don't care what your issues are. We only want your life and your goals to be in your control. For us, the only issue that’s important is what we can do to change the system.
Whatever is your particular concern, no changes are possible under our current system because it was built by the same people who profit from it.
Let's use global warming as an example. There has never been a greater threat to our species and planet than global warming. Fortunately, we know what we need to do to address this crisis, but unfortunately, these changes will never happen while a majority of our legislators have some level of interest in the success of energy companies. You may think that our most corrupt ‘leader’ is a republican, but you would be wrong.
Joe Manchin is a democrat congressman who is single-handedly holding up important legislation that will combat the dangerous effects of global warming. Is he doing this because he thinks that this is best for the US? You tell me. Manchin chairs the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. It is a key position in ensuring our country pursues more climate-friendly policies. But he is adamantly opposed to addressing the effects of global warming.
Here’s why. He and his family own a coal company, Enersystems. Last year alone, he was paid $491,949 in dividends, which is a fraction of the over $5 million that he’s been paid thus far from his business. He also receives the most funds from the oil and gas industry with ‘donations’ from fossil fuel PACs exceeding $1.6 million from May 2020 to May 2021.
