    As usual, you hit the head right on the nail. There is a fine tradition of wealthy men in virtual rule of our nation, from Cornelius Vanderbilt thru Donald Trump: All generous men of benign temperament and consistent benevolence and virtue.
    .
    So let Neo-Feudalism begin. But to put a positive spin on things, we should henceforth be known as “serfer” dudes.

    Wow! On a roll this morning everyone! Neo-feudalism is the perfect characterization. Unfortunately, because you can’t sell History for a lot of money, or put 5" platform heels on it, or play it with your thumbs, no one will be interested. Bread and circuses it is!

    Adrian Snare: Haven’t you heard? Bribery is free speech. And the National Petroleum Radio is conservative; look at what they won’t cover.

    Great idea, but how to you narrow candidates when money removed as an obstacle? (actual curiosity, not being a smart posterior).

    Let’s just dispense with this “voting” hassle and grant the office to whoever raises the most funds. I’m sure Eric Cantor would back me on this!

    Based on the fact that immigration reform — once claimed to be Boehner’s biggest priority — just died in the house; I don’t think we need to worry about a Republican president for the foreseeable future.

    You’re right. There are many who prefer to silently and insidiously feed. It’s a poorly developed parasite that outright kills its host. Ever see the John Carpenter movie, “They Live”? What a hoot! but an appropriate allegory to our modern situation. I sometimes wonder …

    If we do not ALL start voting, at every level, then we have surrendered to the money class.

    When are they going to stop calling it lobbying and contributing, and start using the correct term: BRIBERY!
