While the tittle says a lot, read on as the article says even more:


There may be 10 candidates in Thursday night’s prime time Fox debate, but Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders thinks they will all be talking about the same thing.

“When you watch that debate just imagine if you are one of the wealthiest people in this country and extremely greedy and selfish, and you’re going to have 10 candidates more or less talking about your needs and not the needs of working people,” Sanders said in a recorded interview with Ari Rabin-Havt on SiriusXM’s Progress Channel.

Well, it's that the value of the individual human life has been diminished.

People are literally disposable to the people in control of government and the economy.

And when you treat people like disposable drones, they'll begin to exhibit behavior that mimics this. People are behaving in crazy ways to lash out against he marginalization they're feeling.

When a CEO makes 937% more than their average employee it makes you think -- is the CEO worth 937% more? Is that one man or woman's life worth 937% more to the planet Earth?

This is what we're all feeling right now just beneath the surface.

“They want to give more tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires at a time when the rich are getting much richer,” Sanders said.


News flash Bernie: In the last 4-5 years, the wealthiest 2-3 percent have gotten richer than any previous time.
Any time in the history of America.
With a democrat in the white house.

It doesn't stop to amuse me how people get into the political debates, heck what does anybody has gotten out of them, politicians lie they lie during debates, they lie during campaign and they all do whatever our of their bony arses when they hold positions of power.

Talking about working people, when was the last time any political rats or president in power has done anything but screw the working people and our work force, or people forget that both elite political parties support 100% outsourcing

They only seem to be against of it, when they are lying about how much they care during political debates and campaigning, any of the rats in power have a record to prove how much they care.

So we sit around and all acknowledge that politicians don't really represent us, but rather themselves and corporate interests/money ... year after year after year.

We like to complain, but we never organize or push back.

Frankly, I'm tired of complaining.

Of course they don't care about working people. These are the same men that fight against unions, pay lip service to small business while stabbing them in the back for their corporate buddies and completely dismiss the idea that wages are in serious need of help.

I'm still not completely convinced that Bernie is the guy for me. Even though I'm a socialist, he's not socialist enough for me. But Bernie is consistent and does represent the working man.

Lord knows we could use some socialism right now and I may have to break down and support the guy.

Sadly you know that most people that raise up to push to get the rats exposed are either squashed by opposition or take over by infiltrating control groups.

That is they way of America politics or may I say, the American way.



Is not honesty in politics anymore.

Well, that's why you start at the local level, and bootstrap your way across the country that way. Once local politics have made significant changes, you can start using local politicians to influence state politics, and from there federal level politics.

You can't try to change things in DC or at the federal level -- they'll never vote against their own interests, and you'll never get enough people who aren't bought and paid for elected to national politics.

You have to start small and local and build from there.

Not due to lack of effort, on behalf of Obama and the Dems, to change that. Are the Republicans willing to approve tax hikes on the rich? The Democrats are.

Sorry to say this, but once you have been over many elections in many decades you will get the point, corruption is not only at the top, it actually starts from the bottom, remember if you don't have money, you can never make it in politics, honest people usually are the ones that never get to raise to the top, as dirty backers don't like them.

America is a lost case, we Americans lost our nation a long time ago.

What exactly do you think increasing taxes will do to stop the majority of money from flowing to them to begin with. How much additional tax money do you think it would take to fix income disparity? Also do you think that taxes are the reason why more money is flowing to the top, real wages are dropping, and income disparity is growing?

Because they're way too liberal to take their own side in an argument.

They don't have too, they lied so much that they know they will look like the liars they are if they debate what they haven't done in the last 8 years from the previous lying.

They don't need to put on an entertainment/variety show to convince their voter base that they're relevant?

I'll have my popcorn out tonight, I'm expecting a lot of laughs. I wonder how badly all the candidates will try and scare me, as that's a typical conservative tactic.

I can smell the fear propaganda in the air already!

Because a lot of people on the Left look for substance and voting records, rather than a dog and pony show where the candidates puff out their chest and lie to each other to show the audience who's man enough to lead the nation.

If you look back to Bill Clinton's time in office you will see the same thing in regards to income inequality getting worse.

So there are really only two possible reasons for this. First one being that democratic policies are somewhat naive. They are intended to help the poor and middle class, but are in fact doing the opposite and helping the rich.

Or there is a more sinister situation in which democrats really don't care about the poor/middle class, and manipulate their base into voting for modern day slavery.
