This is NOT ABOUT OBAMACARE. It's about unbridled Capitalism and the Citizens United Act in ref. to Corporate America acquiring ownership of the American market, it's labor and fruits, by multi-national corporations that have no national allegiance, whose only allegiance is to profit, who then bridle "main-street" by keeping wages low to create said debt. Ie; I borrow money from you to buy your car, then I have to work for you to pay you back that money. That is the conquering and enslaving!
