Thanks! - IsaacAlso, Please text "sierra" to 69866 to get the Sierra Club's Mobile Action Network alerts. Thanks! - Isaac In order to restore democracy to America, in order to reclaim our constitution & bill of rights from the billionaires and plutocrats, in order to begin moving toward Justice for All (Economic, Racial, Social, and Environmental Justice), we need between 6 and 10 million activists organized and engaged. Please help us grow the movement to stand up for justice. Start by signing up to our email list and Sierra Club's Mobile Action Network, then begin organizing - invite your friends and colleagues to signup as well, maybe start your own list. Ask yourself, "How many people could I personally turn out to a rally this weekend, for example, to peacefully protest against government forces causing lead poisoning of children in our community?" Set your own goals, but if the number is less than you'd like it to be, think about how you can get more people involved. You KNOW ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, FNC, MSNBC - they aren't going to help. We've got to do it ourselves.

The most massive redistribuion of wealth occurred in a kind of reverse Robin Hood effect in the US between the time Reagan came into office in 1980 through Bush Jr.'s second term in 2008. The redistribution funneled the nation's wealth away from the vast majority of Americans and toward primarily the smallest fraction of the population, just 1% of the wealthiest plutocrats. The next 4% also received some additional wealth.
This wealth was immorally funneled away from the rest -- 95% of Americans whose wealth decreased, as can be seen in this chart.
The next time you hear anyone on the Fox Noise Machine (Fox "News" Channel) hysterically and ridiculously accusing President Obama of this, attempting to scare the Nation into believing that everyone should beware of Obama, let them know that No, on the Contrary. It was Reagan and Bush, and Clinton to a degree with the "Contract On America" Gingrich congress, who were the true believers in "redistribution of wealth," and who accomplished it on a massive scale.
If we are lucky, President Obama will succeed in correcting the Reagan / Bush's immoral legacy of coming after your money and "redistributing it" to the wealthiest among us. Please see the Citigroup Plutonomy Report.
