the truth of it is

the elites don't need us, the american people. their markets for
buying and selling are the BRIC countries and their markets for labor
are anywhere that human rights, labor rights and the environment don't
matter. so why would they put a dollar into housing, feeding,
educating, medicating, employing or infrastructuring a citizenry who
has nothing to hold over their heads. want better food, suck it cuase
giant agribussiness isn't going to change when they know you'll die
without them. want your kids to have better schools, why would the
elites educate kids when all their workers are overseas and their kids
go to private schools. every single dollar they pay AND we pay in
taxes is a dollar they think should be in their pockets. not ours, and
certainly not in bulk buying projects like updating power grids or
medicare for all. we have to stop imagining that we can ever appeal to
their sense of community, they have none. it is time to cut them out
of the country running process.

The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all of your time.
