They always talk about the victims, those poor people who keep getting screwed.  Like we don’t know that those poor people is us. They always talk about the middle class, like the best anybody wants is average.  They never talk about the love between people, about our communities, because they just can’t remember that we exist and our communities exist to do way more than just to vote for them.  They never talk about justice or democracy.  All they ever talk about is themselves.
