Our reps. do this, senators do this. Every politician does this. Why don't they do their job.

Because they don't get re-elected by pandering to the little people. We don't pay for their election campaigns; corporations do. Therefore, the corporations' well-being is more important than the people's, to our elected officials.

Politicians are agents of the corporation entitled United States of America Incorporated created under British common law. Their actions are akin to the actions of any other businessman in that what they do is for the well-being of the corporation and not necessarily its employees/subsidiaries/citizens. Our society is based on money, pure and simple. Politicians do what it takes to fatten corporations and their own pockets. Republicans = More Government, More Gov. Power. Democrats = More Government, More Gov. Power. By keeping people dependent on the system, they are able to receive more revenue. Credit is a big part in all this in that by lending fiat money they are receiving interest on money that they create. As well, all ownership is in the state, we lease what we own from the government and therefore must pay taxes on it in addition to the interest we pay from their credit.
The system is pretty much the same as a feudal system except the masses now have the illusion of ownership, education and that fancy title called democracy.
