The Amazing Race To The Bottom

We have broken our backs for a lifetime with nothing to show for it except food on the table and the clothes on the backs of our children. We have played by the rules, done our fair share. We have built the roads and cities that this country takes for granted, sent our sons off to die in foreign wars that our society has forgotten, and we have never asked for anything in return. We have never asked for anything more than a line to work, a time card to punch and the promise that if we work hard our whole lives we can offer our children a better life than the one we had.
