Answerable To The Global Banking Cartel
hegemony composed of plutocrats and oligarchs. With the Republicans, you KNOW you're gonna get a snug, slick, rich asshole who looks out for other rich assholes, and who gets a majority of Americans to elect him to vote against their own self interst in the pipe dream that they'll win the lottery one day and be a millionaire too! This looking out for the rich and duping the dumb electorate is not just a plank in their platform, it's the granite foundation on which their party is built. With the Democrats (as my friend Joe M says, the party where "ideas go to die") you have the hope that they'll look out for the middle class and the little guys, the under dogs... but they just tend to hide it a little better, and squander their weak grip on power more in a more rudderless fashion. And since "Citizens United v. FEC", there's no shortage of corporate patronage to keep the rich in power longer, concentrate more wealth in the hands of a few, and increase the growing economic disparity in what was once the great nation of the United States of America.
