    Perhaps I’m taking your posts to literally, but I can’t figure out how you steal something from people that don’t have anything let alone why the rich would want to steal something that people don’t have.

    Republicans didn’t learn anything from the last election or the 100 page “autopsy” that came out last week.

    You replace progressive income taxes with a flat tax, increased sales taxes, and fees for services. You replace Medicare with a capped voucher system. You destroy public education for a privatized system that favors your own tribe. You encourage banking malfeasance and the abandonment of fiduciary responsibilities to maximize profits – even if it causes cyclical economic crashes that must be rescued by taxpayers through public debt. You gerrymander and manipulate the local, state, and federal systems, combined with a strong media propaganda organ to entrench your power.

    You would think that the “not crapping in your own nest” theory would be a legitimate reason why a person (or a company) would not deliberately embark on a path that would cause harm to their own society. Unfortunately, the capacity for human greed is boundless. History continues to be chock full of oligarchs without any sense of societal altruism – the ultra rich and greedy wanna-bes literally don’t care what happens to people or their country. Paul Ryan is an Ayn Rand enthusiast – I got mine and screw the rest of you parasites.
    .
    There is hope, however, when some companies and wealthy persons, or those who can make a difference, do not choose to go down that path of greed and actually try to nourish their lives and those of others. And I hope that a greater appreciation of such corporate entities and individuals can be made when you see how they are targeted, reviled, and demonized by the likes of screaming right-wing pundits and Fox News.
