I agree, you are paying enough. So do the Democratic candidates. They do however believe that when 92% of the GNP is owned by 3% of the population, that it wasn’t real logical for Trump and the Republican congress to give them a tax break. Yes, he did also give the middle class a small tax break at the same time, and you heard all about that on Fox News. They didn’t, however point out that It was to be phased out over three years, and the one for the super rich was permanent. Your belief that the Democrats are worse for you personally is dead wrong. You have been lied to. Do some research. I promise you the Democrats are very imperfect, but they are better for you personally than the Republicans.
If you are expecting a large tax increase, you either make more than $50 million a year, or you aren’t listening to what the Democrats are telling you. If you do make more than $50, million, you still will only have about a 5% increase, and if you can’t get by on the rest of the $50,000,000, I’m not real sympathetic.
The Republicans in congress are doing their job. Their intention is to keep everything just as it is, unless they can manage to return to the “good old days” of the 19th century, before there was a middle class and when only the landed gentry were voters. They love Trump because he is giving them a Supreme Court that will further those goals for the next 20 years or so, and using Executive privilege to support their agenda. They know he is corrupt, and know he is a liar, and they know his sanity is really questionable—- and that’s just fine with them, as long as he is furthering their goals. And, they have a great strategy for accomplishing this: 1. Disenfranchise everyone you possibly can, unless they are dependable Republican voters. 2. Produce ads and media emphasis which emphasizes those politicians who are corrupt and incompetent. This undermines the people’s trust in their government and makes them feel like helpless pawns, so they tune out the whole process and accept the status quo. 3. Support the “job creators”, who have managed their affairs so that they are the recipients of a huge portion of the GNP, although that GNP was produced by working people, who are receiving less benefit from it every day. This gives them the money to accomplish the other two goals, and leaves everyone except the “job creators” with increasingly less money to mount a counter campaign. 4. Having supported the “job creators”, expect them to return the favor by financing Republican candidates, since there aren’t enough Middle Class people stupid enough to do it. So, this is the way we are going lose the Middle Class and become a country inhabited only by the very rich 1%, and a 99% who are too busy working two jobs to survive to notice.
Obviously, very limited experience!!

I work with young people in political campaigns often. They have more information that is relevant to the world we currently live in than we do. Our experience is relevant, sure, and they do discount it sometimes when they would be better off to heed it, but we have a lot more to learn from them than the other way around. Of course, I’m talking about dedicated young Democrats who obviously are smarter than the average person.
Actually, when I was a kid, the choice was radio or go play outside. I was about five when I saw a box the size of a volkswagen with a screen the size of a dinner plate which showed static through which you could glimpse a picture often enough to keep the whole neighborhood glued to it for hours at a time.

True, but would you rather live a long time confined to the house or a shorter time going wherever you wanted to?
