Silent No Longer

This is what they think of us. This is how they view us. To the 1-percenters and their supporters and beneficiaries in government - federal, state, and local - and the MSM, we are riff raff who are much better when we're not seen or heard. They prefer us to be invisible to them.

We don't have much, if any, representation in government: you may see a few of us run for office, but we are most often beat by the incredible 1 percent money machine. We don't have much, if any, representation in the MSM: you may occasionally see us, but only in token feel good stories occasionally or crime reporting. Many of the 1 percent rarely think of us, save for the examples above and maybe if and when they give to charity, but even then, those thoughts are fleeting.

We are completely controlled.
