True of course, but politicians are only part. It is a view the right likes to promote to screen their benefactors. International corporations have a lot of control over our daily lives. The elite run the show through donations to both parties. Whether its Glen Beck, Elon Musk, or Mobil oil, they all want to convince us that they are the heroes and have our best interests in mind. BS. A few politicians rely on small sum donations, but quite a few more take as much as they can get from anybody. Wanna look at an example of countries with the Rick Scott System: where the poor and middle class pay most of the taxes and the wealthy skate? Plenty of examples. Countries in Africa, the Middle East, and Southern Asia. Poor economies, minimal infrastructure, pot holes in all the major roads, electricity blackouts, no safe water systems. Plenty of rich people though, they live with body guards in gated communities and spend all of the time they can somewhere else like Europe. But the poor are personally responsible, no safety net for them. They may be hard working and ingenious, but their children still die of preventable causes. That is not what I believe the founding fathers envisioned, a plutocracy replacing the monarchy and the citizens still carrying the load on their shoulders. The only tyrannical government that Glen Beck would encourage his followers to overthrow is the one that asks him to pay more for what he gets back. 5 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
