Their financiers kick millions of us out of our homes, and no justice.

She who would have herself lead them commits espionage, and no justice.

They kill our planet, and no justice.

And all the while, year after year, wealth continues to concentrate.

This is not governing, it is diseased self-indulgence by the few at the expense of the masses.

They tell themselves they are responsible for great acts and what they take is their due.

But they are deluded – period.

This is not democracy. Not even close.

And now, with the TPP, they attempt to lock in the status quo because they can.

This is Obama's legacy.
