But most people don't have voracious appetites. A small percentage of
the wealthiest folks have most of the wealth of America. They are the
ones with voracious appetites and selfishness. One statistic I saw
indicates that the wealthiest 1% have as much as the bottom 90%.

Our reps will do a better job when they in fact represent us. And that
will happen after we reform the election system. We all have to yell
real loud at our reps and let'em know we won't stand for it any longer.
It was no less than Thomas Jefferson who said a little rebellion once in
awhile is good for democracy.
