There are many more, but I think you get the idea. It is a wonderful day isn't it!!!
Let me lay it out to you real simple so you can understand.
We have our Constitution and our Constitutional Protections and rights, designed to assure the welfare of the people.
We have basically 2 distinct and diverse groups working at politics trying their best to "adjust" that basic framework to suit their needs.
One group is organized, cooperates with a joint purpose. They are not obvious to the naked eye. They are very understated, you can only find them in
the FINE PRINT. Money is no object to this group except that it is THE BALL and they always have to have the ball.
The other group is disorganized and fractioned both naturally and intentionally. They are overstated, obvious and dirt poor by comparison, mostly
very confused and blind sided. They do not even know there is a ball in this game. They rarely ever get or see the ball.
Here are the groups....
GROUP #1 The wealthiest 1%.
GROUP #2 The rest of us.
Wealthiest 1% - Are so rich they consider themselves American Royalty. They are heavily connected through generations in politics and over the years
have gained considerable sway and influence.
THEY are the POWERS THAT BE. At the core it is 400 families. Just 400 families.
They own businesses and in many cases virtual monopolies.
They like things just as they are and would like to keep it that way.
New ideas are pretty much shunned or purchased and then shunned.
Of course they employee people.
People cost money.
In subtle and slippery ways this groups works against "the people" and in their own best interest every time. They even pay people in politics and
lobbyists to draft proposals and make laws that subvert the peoples interest and promote their own. Corporations have the right to influence politics.
Is it possible we have let this group get to big and too powerful? Is it possible we are letting the tail wag the dog here
Can I tell you who the worker is? It is THE REST OF US.
The worker is the middle class.
The worker is the poor and the unemployed.
The ELITE....TPTB /Group#1 - That's his boss.
The popular go-to euphemism for him is American small business...small like Walmarts & Bain Capital.
Walmarts crushed America in 10 years! by putting mom & pop and all their employees out of work. They put all the American MFG that made mom & pops
goods out of work. Then they started buying all the products from China in bulk and boosted China's economy while killing ours.
You want to put the folks behind Walmart fame in charge of the country? Haven't they shown their patriotism and true colors to you yet? If you do
something why not weigh the effects in the long run and not just as far as you can see in the sort term on the American people. No
This move by these corporate giants is nothing but a total and absolute threat to the worker.
They are holding America hostage. These mega-giant companies have all the subsequent industrial empires following them. They are the Union Bosses of
Vote with the Republicans or lose your jobs.
Well we "the people" don't respond to threats.
They keep wages and benefits low. Downsize and send jobs to China. It was their greed and initial disrespect for the American worker and America that
allowed them to invest more in foreign countries than here in their own country. Vast EMPIRES that made their name and their fortune here - TAKING THE
This was the downfall of the Greek Economy and will be here in America if you let these 400 families get away with robbing us blind. They perpetuate
the idea Washington is corrupt and "government" is the problem to hide facts it is the dis-mantling of a perfectly good government that IS the
By ONE SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP.
There ARE good people of character and integrity doing a thankless job in DC and there are those on the take and part of a vast and powerful network
of people working and lobbying for that relatively infinitesimal group of Americas wealthiest few. They are many in the GOP, a few in the Democratic
Party and they have a TV "News" Station as a portion of their HOLDINGS.
