Its about jobs--we haven't been creating enough of them for a long time.
All the bad things you see on your TV and in your culture and community that you don't like are in ways the result of a longterm jobs deficit.
I have written about this before. The austerity caucus in both parties has been at this for decades.
It's part of the reason why we've chosen to mass warehouse young males with lots of energy and nothing productive to do. We haven't created meaningful work for them. The wage stagnation and wage inequality we've seen has been a policy choice, not the whims of a free market.
The militarization of police--directed at young black males predominantly--has been systematic and ongoing and has intellectual roots from right wing radicals.
I mean just look at Michael Brown's high school; its disgusting. Its about an agenda of creating a permanent underclass.
The answer is to put good jobs and good infrastructure back on the agenda. Thats why I'm running for State House here in Georgia.
You can chip in to my campaign if you'd like to be a part of this movement to take back our country from an out of touch political class. This is about movement building.
