Isn't it odd?

San Luis Obispo



Isn't it odd that we have to vote on something that should have been a "no brainer" for the lawmakers? Something that requires the most common of common sense, such as labeling GMO products?

Isn't it odd that there are Super-Pacs, lobbying, and other forms of "donations" that let corporations like Monsanto, Goldman Sachs, etc., give politicians unlimited amounts of money?

Isn't it odd that most Americans are living paycheck to paycheck?

Isn't it odd that prices on things like food, water, electricity, and gas are still on the rise?

Isn't it odd that no matter who gets elected into office, the big corporations gain more power?

Isn't it odd that no matter who gets elected, there is always some war we have to fight somewhere?

Isn't it odd that our brothers and sisters, our sons and daughters put their lives on the line to defend our country and, in return corporations, like General Motors ship jobs to China?

Isn't it odd that when I look into a mirror, I feel responsible for the lives of our sons and daughters, that they deserve a country that is free from corporate rule?
