The Ultimate Weapon–Our Wallets.

The time has come to wage war with our wallets as weapons. Yes folks, the only thing that any political entity in the USA has any respect for is money. The profit margin is the battleground for the unfolding economic-social-political class war.  Since money is what has been making the world go round according to the agendas of the corporate elite, then money can stop their greedy worlds from going round.  We are going to have to become very well-informed about who owns, manufactures, and sells everything we purchase so that we gain some control of how our money is used.  The growing efforts in Wisconsin for waging this sort of wallet warfare may provide everyone with a beginning playbook for what needs to be done in order for us to have a say in how we live and work. This goes beyond voting whenever there is an election. This involves how we live and work and play every day of our lives.  Every choice we make with our wallets becomes a vote, a political action. Here in lies a form of great collective power based upon informed choices every day. It will require mindfulness, will power and unity to be effective. Take note, there are more of “us” than there are of “them” aka the rich corporate elite.  We have the strength of numbers. Now, the question is, do we have the strength of conviction to act for the long-term? Our actions will impact our children’s lives, the environment, and the state of the rest of the world.

Consider what gasoline you pump into your car, which toilet paper you purchase 52 weeks a year, and where your breakfast, lunch and dinner comes from. Think about all the money you earn and spend–and who gains from it. Yes, America–it’s Wallet War Time.

    The pocketbook is your vote. Perhaps sold items could feature a warning like they do for cigarettes…harmful to everything you hold dear.

      In way they do, Al. We just need to follow the logos to the corporations and learn what they’re doing. Hi.

    We’ve been voting with our wallets for some time and slowly it does seem to be starting to make a difference, at least on supermarket shelves. Every little bit helps. It can be exhausting consciously deciding which products to buy, but we keep trying!

      Hi Barbara. I agree that every little bit helps–and it adds up over time. The more of us who exercise this route of activism the more effective it can become. I was in the grocery store yesteday and even though Angel Soft was on ‘sale’ there was NOT the usual hole on the shelf for the sale item.The other brands support other companies’ employees.
