It is already getting harder to stop this demolishing of America's democracy. Tea Party members who have been used by the likes of the Koch, Walker and Armey will end up with the same fate as everyone else once power is solidified. Their government run Medicare, the one they clung to as they railed against government run health care, will be replaced by a voucher system for health insurance that does not cover the costs of the premiums and if you cannot afford the difference then it is tough luck for you if you get sick. Try getting health insurance when you are elderly, with some health problems, it can't be done or you have to pay exorbitant premiums that pay for little or no coverage and from which you can be expelled from coverage at the whim of the Insurance companies. Social Security will be privatized into individual stock market accounts where unscrupulous agents eat away your savings with any and every fee they can think of, that is if you have any savings left after another downturn in the market caused by inept politicians and/or unbridled greed in the financial sector. Forget about getting help from the state, Social Services and Medicaid were done away with so that the top 2% could pay no taxes, so they can get massive "subsidies", so they can pollute our environment at will, strip mine our protected forests and National parks and pollute out rivers and shores with uncontrolled and unmonitored energy drilling. Most of the country's water tables have long been toxic cesspools from untethered hydro-fracturing and our lakes and rivers routinely catch fire after the hydro fracturing waste has been dumped into them.

All the above are not some far-fetched scenarios but are starting to happen all over our land, allowed to happen by politicians who have sold their souls and our childrens' and grandchildrens' futures to the highest bidder. Again I say we have to come together in numbers that cannot be ignored and tell those who work for us at every level "ENOUGH!!!"

I feel Care2 members should KNOW about the \\\"work from home\\\" ads, RECRUITING \\\"MULES\\\" TO CARRY OUT ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES. Just like the Drug Cartels do... A person who was recruited unwittingly by one of these ads, was given in a seattleweekly.com arti...
