There's been little discussion about the problem of poverty in the current Presidential election, the conventions pretty much ignored it.
"The Circle of Protection, composed of Christian leaders from across the religious spectrum, released President Barack Obama's and GOP nominee Mitt Romney's video responses today at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C."

It was a mass protest
held outside the halls of Washington. Led, or at least it was supposed to be, by Martin Luther King Jr.
(before he was assassinated) it was going to show the world the glaring divide
that existed between the Rich and the Poor
of America. Black, White, Red, Yellow
--they all gathered from all over the US, to stay together for six weeks, outside the Capitol, and inform
the public about what life in America could sometimes mean, if you were not considered economically, socially or racially acceptable. Unfortunately, the problem still persists
, even today.
