If the US war-machine could spend $6 Trillion over the last decades, how about all those and many other civilian priorities!?
The Grand Con is, and has been increasingly, the theft via manipulated “needs” pushed by the thieves with complicity and collusion of elected officials that work together with the criminals to commit the robbery from our civilian nation to military and corporate welfare, banker bail-outs, wall street, and the “tax-cuts” that are a major part of the “Grand Con” and theft from our republic & people to the top 1% and their connections…the greatest theft in history committed right under our noses, all via mostly “legal” means…ENOUGH!
We must claw-back the wealth stolen from millions of Americans! Their ignorance and/or diversion from the crime must be remedied to help them see the ways the powerful pull the various wool’s over their eyes, whether “defense” spending and endless war (already partly, and soon to be even more privatized), rampant tax evasion by powerful corporations, “incentives” to corporate interests like the fossil-fuel conglomerate in its entirety, nuclear industry, and many other complicit aspects of the Con that gifts the wealthiest by taking from the poor and middle class, workers, students, and the vast for-profit health “care”/pharmaceutical/hospital scam costing and diverting billions/trillions more to the wealthiest, while millions struggle just to survive, have food, and a roof over their heads.
There will likely always be “richer” and “poorer”, given ambition and life-style choices, but the disparities are now obscene regarding wealth distribution, vast income inequality, and opportunity possibilities, now the domain of the few…
