Medicine to Live is a Social Welfare Case for Eminent Domain over Big Pharma
In a short time, the cost of living (being alive) has skyrocketed for Americans at the profit whims of a few who own and control life saving medications. Welcome to capitalism, unfettered.
This crisis has reached an outrageous level of indecency. The profit machine of big pharmaceutical giants has been modifying and growing since the 1960’s and fueled by the corruption of money on politics.

It's time we gain political courage for the welfare of the people, and end the crisis of existence of millions who live by a thread to the end of life, for the profits of the pharmaceutical giants.

An answer to this craziness is for this country to use eminent domain to own all pharmaceutical resources collectively. It's clear by now; we need protecting from this evil that has lasted far too long with no end in sight. Full control over the for-profit scoundrels is an area of social welfare that the Declaration of Independence was talking about if a document could speak. We can't thrive; the opportunity is robbed from millions by the misfortune of their bodies. It's life for God's sake. Eminent Domain. We take it all.
The welfare of all of us depends on a comprehensive and more permanent solution. We have used the tool for far less critical reasons than to give the people this vital necessity so they can live. I want this human service to be democratically controlled, and this madness to stop once and for all.
The constitutional path is transparent, and it's time to put our feet down and demand that private industry not be exempt from this vital solution. I live near New London, Connecticut, where the SCOTUS ruled it was okay for the government to take land from the public to give it to a private developer, to profit so that the city could raise more property tax funds.
First, we initiate full campaign financing for all offices, removing the corrupt influence of all money in our representation, returning to the meaning and the envisioned power of "one person one."
