I keep hearing the term, but it is not possible when our politicians are owned by those who want in our pocket.
By Jack E. Lohman
Truth is, our politicians should be on a pedestal. We should bow at their feet, they being our protectors and leaders.
But we can’t, obviously, because they have only a 9% positive rate among the public, and are bought and paid for by private corporatists. They are as corrupt as the worst, and they write the rules for the corrupt diversion of our public assets.
Political corruption has destroyed every other country with it, and it will destroy America too. Already we rank at only #22 on the international corruption index. Yea, even those terrible “socialist” countries have us beat here.
Why are our politicians not FIRST on the list???
Capitalism can take several forms
- Free-for-all crony capitalism is the system we now have, where politicians are more enthralled with the cash money they receive from corporate interests who want taxpayer-funded government favors.
- Honest capitalism is unbeatable. There will always be under-the-table cash flow, but that penalty is jail time. It is the legal payola that will kill democracy.
So think about it; if you were the owner of a company, would you tolerate an employee who gave away corporate assets in return for cash on the side?
Probably not, but that’s exactly what your politicians are doing. YOU are the corporate owner (taxpayer) and THEY are your employee.
And when we need Scott Walker the most…
He’s in New York at a fundraiser sponsored by AIG’s Hank Greenberg. Collecting cash from the bad guys.
I don’t want this man promising Wisconsin assets to anyone, let alone a Fat Cat from another state. And get this: campaign cash does not flow without taxpayer giveaways! Thanks Scott!
How are you liking it so far?
