“we agree on practical things like … not letting big corporations and the wealthy run everything.”
Aaah, ha ha ha ha ha!
If we all agreed on that, we’d have a $15 minimum wage, Medicare for All and a Green New Deal. Sure, the people want those things, but when have the people ever had a say in it? We get to vote for candidates that YOUR class, Robert, chooses for us. The result, whoever we vote for, is always the corporations and the wealthy running everything.
To suggest that it’s otherwise is a dirty lie. And more and more people are seeing through it. And once enough of us see through it, those of you who keep repeating the lie are going to wish they had kept their mouths shut. The Hamptons, Robert, are not a militarily defensible position, and when the music stops, we will come for all of you - those on the right and those of you on the left who pretend to be for the people, but who somehow always seem to end up supporting those who take power away from the people. Because it’s not about left and right - it’s about capitalists and the working class - and there are more of us than there are of you. As I recall, you worked for Clinton - the guy who gave us NAFTA, the 1994 crime bill and the final destruction of the unions. So you’d better choose which side you’re on, Robert. Carefully. Because there’s a reckoning coming, and it’s not going to turn out well for those of you who helped to support the programs that turned the middle class into the working poor.
