Tell it like it is Robert!!
"Wealth, power, and crony capitalism fit together. So far in the 2016 election, the richest 400 Americans have accounted for over a third of all campaign contributions" - vast wealth has bought all politicians, political mechanisms, candidates, elections, and legislation to criminally increase the wealth and power of the 1%!
"Those at the very top of the top have rigged the system even more thoroughly. Since 1995, the average income tax rate for the 400 top-earning Americans has plummeted from 30 percent to 17 percent" - these are the BS "tax-cuts" touted by RepubliCons, supported by Dems, and politicians of both parties are too corrupted to expose or denounce!
"At its core are the major corporations, their top executives, and Washington lobbyists and trade associations; the biggest Wall Street banks, their top officers, traders, hedge-fund and private-equity managers, and their lackeys in Washington; the billionaires who invest directly in politics; and the political leaders of both parties"
"most Americans couldn’t care less about economic growth because for years they’ve got few of its benefits, while suffering most of its burdens in the forms of lost jobs and lower wages" - "most Americans" paying higher taxes and "fees" to make-up revenue the uber-wealthy and corporations are evading!.
If reforms cannot be effected to restore some measure of fairness for the common guy and gal, revolution will become inevitable........the "establishment" had better realize that......and right quick!
