Why is income-inequality on unsustainable upward acceleration? Is it because the highest paid are so much more worthy and industrious, or does greater access to cronyism have much to do with it? How can consequences of cronysim be so great for investment in republican democracy, when it's obvious cronyism has gone international, leading to cannibalization of American industry and labor? Isn't it obvious both political parties are puppets for crony-investors for establishing ever more inequality? Democrat liars buy votes of future serfs with cheap promises, while shoveling billions out back doors to cronies. Republican liars bed down with despotic thugs, and exert influence in the same institutions of persuasion to tell us how necessary 'tis to have free trade with despots. Both parties talk about enforcing borders, improving industrial base, and increasing jobs. Notwithstanding talk, both serve the indenturing of Americans, to turn us into cheap, easily-ruled, third-world labor. One wants open (borderless) society; the other wants worldwide (borderless) marketplace. Both want elites to rule; neither wants to heed a middle class. One considers itself entitled to confiscate America's resources to allow party elites to control worldwide dispersals. The other considers the potential of America's resources its exclusive trust for further enriching worldwide investor-cronies. Hedge artists fund both sets of liars and own all significant institutions of persuasion to keep the charade going. How can sane people believe we have effective representative democracy, when nearly all institutions of persuasion are aligned in favor of the charade that is the status quo: an unholy alliance for reducing and cannibalizing the middle class? BLT makes an Orwellian virtue out of disdaining middle class values! Buffet promotes a progressive income tax only to evade consideration of a wealth tax. Heck, he evades the existing tax rates! Could it be any more obvious that poverty pimps run the Democrat party as a Commie front and that an international establishment of raiders hedges and runs both parties as Crony fronts? How is this "open-society-worldwide-marketplace-NWO" supposed to preserve human freedom and dignity ... anywhere? Is anyone in politics holding up Diogenes' lamp?
