In the last several months the Left in America has been so focused on the ‘Israel-Hamas War’ that we’ve forgotten about the true fight, which is right in our backyard. The tensions in the Middle East have always been high throughout history. It seems like every couple of years there’s a conflict there and what does it do? Absolutely nothing but divide us and sway our attention. We need to stand for values that we can agree on. Values that better the world and help our neighbors. That way, we can fix the problems right here in our backyard.,
When has the Left last successfully passed any policies? We may have had minor successes on issues like abortion, LGBTQ, and green policies but they’ve been overturned, while the country becomes alarmingly conservative. Some say “America can chew gum and walk simultaneously”, but it can’t. We the people need to come together; especially in a time of war and redirect our focus to domestic economic issues.
The working class remains in shackles by big corporations while we are quick to call out foreign governments, but not our own. People continue to die in our backyard due to lack of food/water and homelessness. We need to stand together against big corporations and our oligarchy government, now more than ever.
We are working for slave wages; while inflation increases, and the rich get richer. We’re getting smothered by more and more debt that we carry alone. The working class contributes to the government with our taxes and to the corporations through our work. When are they going to contribute to us? Our shackles remain on and we see the key, yet we bicker on how to grab it.
