While the government sucks on both sides it'is clear one side is falling off the cart and it's not the republicans.
Well, as a liberal Democrat I have to disagree with you. Contrary to almost ALL the BS posted here, money talks. So all this commentary about
Democrats is just BS to me.
The problems with our country are not rocket science. The lobbyists force the politicians to past laws creating cartels and monopolies in exchange
for campaign financing. Campaign financing is like heroin for politicians. Both Republicans and Democrats are addicted to heroin. You know we have
NO free-markets in this country because there is no mechanism in the market place to wring out the inefficiencies of exorbitant CEO pay. Meanwhile,
worker's wages suffer as the purchasing power of the dollar gets destroyed by corporate pricing controls:
Power of the Consumer Dollar
Again, money talks, everything you post is BS. This thread is just another example of political nonsense having absolutely NOTHING to do with
anything that matters to the worker making the median wage. All the while the median worker's wage is being driven down deeper into a poverty
So here is why disagree with you about Democrats. Solving the political extremism we have in this country with regards to wealth inequality is NOT
going to be addressed by Republicans who are puppets of the billionaires. I must turn to the 1936 words of FDR in a speech before the Democrat
"An old English judge once said: 'Necessitous men are not free men.' Liberty requires opportunity to make a living - a living decent according to the
standard of the time, a living which gives man not only enough to live by, but something to live for.
For too many of us the political equality we once had won was meaningless in the face of economic inequality. A small group had concentrated into
their own hands an almost complete control over other people's property, other people's money, other people's labor - other people's lives. For too
many of us life was no longer free; liberty no longer real; men could no longer follow the pursuit of happiness.
Against economic tyranny such as this, the American citizen could appeal only to the organized power of government.
This is why I am a liberal Democrat. I have no where else to turn. I don't expect the Republicans who represent the billionaires to address wealth
inequality extremism any time soon since they are the ones who benefit from it the most. It's funny how the people who are most outspoken against
socialism usually benefit from it the most!
