We are the 99%

Disclaimer: Image (courtesy of Occupy Wall Street) above is US-centric and male dominated. Nevertheless, it puts things in perspective.

“WE ARE THE 99%

We are not against the rich,
We are against using wealth to gain an unfair advantage.

We are not against corporations.
We are against corporations governing us.

We are not against capitalism.
We are against corruption in capitalism.

We are not against banks.
We are against fraudulent banking practices.

We are not against investment markets.
We are against legalized fraud in the markets.

We are not against democracy.
We are against the sale of influence by our elected representatives.”

We are the 99%.
