The plan of the Democrats is to further consolidate power and wealth to the CONNECTED FEW. These Far Left, Progressive rich people love to be elite and special. They want a compliant, poor, yet working population to make them even more wealth. The way to do that is to create a poorer, paycheck tp paycheck lower, and middle income class. Which they've largely succeeded in doing.

Our Standard of Living and Quality of Live will decline. There's will continue to be wonderful. Our freedoms, liberties and RIGHTS will continue to be removed as government continues to GROW. That's why they want our guns. Total control and DEPENDENCY.

This is true. Both parties have sold their souls to the wealthy. It does not mean however, that there are not differences between the parties.


Take the Citizens United case. Conservatives applaud that case though it opened the flood gates to dark money in politics. That case was decided 5-4 with the conservatives siding with unlimited dark money in our election process.

Imagine that. Politicians running for the nomination seeking campaign funds.

He/ she who does not will not last.

Trump pulled in $30 million during the first quarter. Most of it was not from hat sales.

The highest fund raiser does not necessarily win. Imagine Sheldon Adelson was none to pleased losing after donating $100 million to Romney PACs. Anyone who gives that kind of money expect a return on their investment.

The latter proved to be the pricier affair, with tickets going for $100,000 (for photo and lunch) or $250,000 (for roundtable, photo and lunch), but it also ended up being the most controversial.

President Donald Trump is attending a pair of fundraisers in the Hamptons amid increased scrutiny of the high-dollar donors helping to finance his reelection campaign.

Last week those Dems condemned the wealthy.
This week they are hobnobbing with them and groveling for money.
Next week they will go back to condemning the wealthy.

Or, most people understand you are using the word demonizing wrong here. And simply advocating for higher taxes on the rich is in no way an "attack" on the rich.


In fact, you likely pay higher taxes than the people you label rich.

All the Democrats say is that the wealthy should pay their fair share. That is why Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, and many others support Democrats, among other reasons. Even these billionaires realize the system is rigged in their favor and have sought to balance things out.

Yes, I wonder which candidate will be the first to tell all theses millionaires that they are not paying their "fair share"?

Citizen United was not the beginning of the problem, not even close.

It made the private public relationship more transparent, but fundraising has always been a factor in politics, and politicians have always been subservient to the wealthy as they are the ones who fund the government and promote development.

When 70 percent of income tax revenue comes from the top bracket they are the ones politicians listen to.

There is no such thing as power to the people.
