That is what has been happening since they iced JFK. If we don’t break away from this duopoly and represent We the People, by whatever party name we want to use, we are toast. The 0.001% have just about achieved their ends, and if we keep playing “Red sock puppet” “Blue sock puppet” for a few more elections, they will finally decide we don’t need anymore elections and we will formally be the descendants of Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany.
*That’s not the way I want this country to end up. I grew up in a Constitutional Republic and it worked pretty well for a couple of centuries. We had a Constitution and a Bill of Rights which worked well to protect We the People from the depredations of the 0.001%, but they wanted it all, to be rulers, not leaders, and we were not to be citizens, but serfs, begging for crumbs from their tables to feed our families for a few more days. To them, that is the Natural Order of Things.
*Teddy and FDR managed to trim their sails for a while, and they hated it. They have worked tirelessly and spent huge amounts of money and, are very close to finishing their plan. When they’ve finally got it all, we will get nothing, for we don’t count, only that tiny percentage counts, and their interest is in counting money pouring into their caves.
*They get the fat of the land, and we get the Fourth Reich. The rest of the world just gets strafed and bombed until they can fight no more.
*The above percentage consists of a handful of greedy old men, not enough to fill a Greyhound Bus. There are well over six billion of us. Surely we can find a way to displace this cadre of greed and begin to rebuild our world.
