That change begins with understanding: The people must recognize that corruption is not just one among many important problems. Corruption is the root problem, that makes solving the others so difficult.
As Henry David Thoreau wrote -
"THERE ARE A THOUSAND HACKING AT THE BRANCHES OF EVIL TO ONE WHO IS STRIKING AT THE ROOT."- so will we practice.
I have written about the now $1.3 Trillion student loan debt for several years now. What I have found is that Congress main goal....their true mission with the help of special interest and the Lobbyist is to keep our eye off what is really important and keep use fighting against one another How else could Congress approval rating ratings be so so low and still these same career politicians continue to get re-elected ? I ask you to watch and take the challenge https://vimeo.com/68059409 share this with your friends talk about it at work... at church...re post this what ever it takes !

excerpt from....... "Why are only our children held accountable"
I tell you this because I have not changed into a liberal or libertarian are any other party.I have become an independent. Our 2 party system is broken, and has become corrupted to the very core.
When our country's last Mid-Term Election cost an estimated $4 Billion, and now just in case you were unaware, or may have forgotten with the new Supreme Court rulings the next Presidential election is being said could double the estimated $7 Billion spent in 2012...can you imagine $14 Billion...how can these amounts of money be justified? Please I have added a link below Congress ratings approval are so low won't calculate ?!
I'm going to continue to add to the links below.....then let's talk about wasting taxpayer $$!!
Corporations in America pay virtually no taxes?
Too Big Too Fail?
Still waiting for the first executive from our 2008 financial meltdown to go to jail?
University Presidents now making $Million salaries to be the Universities promoter?
Shirley Ann Jackson Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Troy N.Y. Total compensation$7,143.312!!!
How can you justify this salary and compensation??????.... Please Shirley tell us
I love college football but, again it's become big business at our Colleges and Universities
depending on the sport less than 2% and more realistically less than 1% will even have the chance to become professionals! College athletes greatly overestimate their chances of playing professionally.
Why not pay the players a percentage of the huge profits generated along with a personal mentor to help invest their money while in college.Think about these student athletes being able to come out of college with a degree and the seed money to start their own business hopefully back in their own community. Now this is an investment in the future of our children and a true stimulus program to help our great country economy start to prosper again especially in our poorer community.
I know this would be very difficult, but we just need a couple of schools to step up and say this is the right thing to do for children. Our inner cities are crumbing before our very eyes.Think about the farmer son football ability what that would mean to be able to start his own farm, or whatever his dream may be The list just goes on and on......
We have allowed our Colleges and Universities to make $Millions...some looking at $Billions in Television contracts. Our children have got to come 1st.......not the huge profits.... when are we as a nation going to demand this?
