Capitalism has a major effect on people around the world. In capitalism, a minority of people benefit from capitalism, while the majority either suffer in poverty or make just enough money to survive. Wages continue to drop while prices for goods increase daily. Unemployment in the United States continues to rise while gas prices steadily increase. In Virginia gas is currently $2.65 cents a gallon. Corporations make billions from consumers, and their slave like working conditions for their employees. Wal-Mart is one of the biggest corporations in the world, but their employees make peanuts compared to the billions of dollars Wal-Mart grosses annually. In socialistic societies the workers own a piece of the companies they work for, and wages are distributed evenly. These types of policies would never work in America since average Americans are indoctrinated by white supremacy. Thus, the idea of competition rather than working together for a greater cause for all is indoctrinated in the minds of folks throughout the nation. As a result, poor rednecks that live in dingy trailer parks walk around with confederate flags, and Republican bumper stickers on their cars as though they have benefited from Capitalism. However, their ignorance only insures politicians fat pay days. Politicians constantly benefit off of the stupidity of their constituents, and the political spectrum is essentially a game of who can lie the best. Poor people and working class people never receive any real solutions to their problems just broken promises and bills that end up costing taxpayers more money.

The House of Representatives, with the support of President Barrack Obama, recently passed a Health Care Reform Bill. The President’s concerns for those who desperately need health care are needed, but he fails to address their problems thoroughly. Without a public option which essentially forces insurances companies to compete with a medi-care like health care coverage program from the government for all; insurance companies will still make billions of dollars from tax payer money. The Health Care Reform Americans will be receiving will be the watered down version. By not fighting for a public option, the Democrats proved that they too like the Republican Party share interests with the insurance companies. In getting the Republicans to fight hard against the public option, the Democrats were able to push through the house a health care bill they felt would gather up enough votes to pass into law. If this premise is true then both parties are corrupted and true progressive are needed to bring forth true change. It is time for the youth to take over and make our voices heard. We are the future and capitalism continues to fail this nation. I refuse to become a wage slave. Capitalism must be destroyed and it will take grassroots efforts to bring capitalism to its much needed demise......
