I caught a headline the other day that caught my attention for two reasons, the first was how absolutely silly it was and how the lie continues about Democrats and the “working class”. The most horrendous lie that floats out in the Country is that Republicans are for the rich and the Democrats are the for the “poor and working class”, neither are true and both can be debunked. For anyone to believe that the laws that Democrats created to make certain Americans slaves to the Government is somehow honorable, while only Republicans pass laws to favor their bagmen (money men) is easily put to rest. There has been a plethora of money making for Wall Street under Barack Obama’s Faculty Lounge Administration, while Main Street is crumbling beneath the weight of regulation and laws, implemented in the first two years of that Administration A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words
The above is just a recent snapshot of how the Democrats are hardly for the “working man”, I think of the cross section of liberal billionaires and millionaires who are quite comfortable within the Democrat Party and quite comfortable with the laws that are passed on to We The People and not them. If anyone truly wanted to see that Democrats are indeed the party of the rich, they need only put in the words, rich, Democrat, donations and look at the links, it is a lesson in the truth, something this Mother Jones article, that caught my attention, does not engage in One Cannot Abandon What One Has Never Done
Second, American politicians don’t care much about voters with moderate incomes. Princeton political scientist Larry Bartels studied the voting behavior of US senators in the early ’90s and discovered that they respond far more to the desires of high-income groups than to anyone else. By itself, that’s not a surprise. He also found that Republicans don’t respond at all to the desires of voters with modest incomes. Maybe that’s not a surprise, either. But this should be: Bartels found that Democratic senators don’t respond to the desires of these voters, either. At all.
It doesn’t take a multivariate correlation to conclude that these two things are tightly related: If politicians care almost exclusively about the concerns of the rich, it makes sense that over the past decades they’ve enacted policies that have ended up benefiting the rich. And if you’re not rich yourself, this is a problem. First and foremost, it’s an economic problem because it’s siphoned vast sums of money from the pockets of most Americans into those of the ultrawealthy.
You see the folly of the writer would be believing that Republicans are corporate shills because they don’t care about those with “modest incomes” and then they are “shocked” that Democrats are that way too. I cannot believe that someone actually thinks that each group is disparate from the other, where does the left think money for campaigns come from? They come from the rich and when a Barack Hussein Obama says he will take funding from the government instead of individuals and then reneges on that promise and ups the ante in 2012 to ONE BILLION dollars to run a campaign, well he has just ingratiated himself and each and every Republican running to those “bagmen”. It would behoove the leftist writer to open their brains to reality and recognize that a majority of the rich are indeed socially liberal themselves and write their checks to the Democrats to push those laws which support their desires, while protecting their corporatism with laws that destroy the free market. Those laws punish the little guy and reward and insulate the rich guy. I consider liberals to be ignorant and stupid and nothing that was written in the above lie on Mother Jones has dissuaded that opinion.
