This presidential race is largely about two different ideologies -- Does corporate America come first, or do the people come first? Certainly, there is no argument that we need both to be a healthy nation and need each other to survive.
Massachusetts U.S. Senate candidate and former consumer crusader Elizabeth Warren said it best with an impassioned attack against corporate greed.
"No, Governor Romney, corporations are not people," Warren said. "People have hearts, they have kids, they get jobs, they get sick, they cry, they dance. They live, they love, and they die. And that matters."
This is another chapter in the age-old feud facing mankind. The wealthiest Americans have clearly shown over the last decade that they only care about getting richer by being irresponsible and taking advantage of the ignorant majority.
It is those consequences of their outlandish greed that has thrown the world into a serious recession that will mandate a new and different approach to the needs of the wealthy minority class.
Most Americans are concerned about the wrong things. It is not the outcome of the wrong doings such as jobs and healthcare that is at the crux of the problem, it is the power gained by the wealthy that is enabling the wrong doings that should concern us.
You must decide in November, which of the two candidates best represent the people's needs.
