No one talks austerity when they are addressing the bloated military budget that keeps arms manufacturers wealthy while not really keeping the rest of us safe. No one talks austerity when they are addressing subsidies to Big Oil, coal, and natural gas interests, even though climate change will kill us all. No one talks austerity when it comes to limiting campaign donations from corporations, even though the two dominant parties seem to listen more to corporate interests than the American people.

The establishment only talks about austerity when it comes to cutting funds for education and health care, for impoverished children and for the care of the elderly. Austerity is only a must when it comes to changing to clean, renewable energy or rebuilding our nation's bridges and roads before they completely collapse. Austerity is needed to keep the people feeling powerless, trapped in the two-party system.

Austerity is just another buzzword for control.
