A blog about Elizabeth Warren and her Persistence

A great set of quotes from Elizabeth Warren’s appearance at the Joyous Persistence political pep rally in San Francisco.

“In this democracy, government can be seized by a handful of people with money who can get government to tilt in their direction,” Warren said. “Money slithers through Washington like a snake.”

“The key question of today is, Can democracy survive this, can democracy fight back?” Warren said. “Its only chance now is us.”

“Banks figured they could boost their profits by selling people mortgages that were hand grenades with their pins pulled out,” Warren said, adding that when disaster struck, those same banks called for a government bailout, arguing that they were too big to fail.

“Those banks are even bigger today,” she warned.

“Politics can’t be something that just happens every four years,” Warren said. “I get how important this is, but I get how important today is and how important tomorrow is.

“We’ve got to be fighting every day.”

Great stuff
