    Both parties are the parties of the insiders.

    The insiders include both the truly wealthy and their servant class, who, in most cases, appear wealthy to most of us.

    Please keep saying it until some of these people start to understand it.

    Most of them really do understand it but many of us don't want to admit it because admitting such an obvious fact is a damned good way to find yourself marginalized by the society which exists based on BIG LIES, Xen.

    I call it as I see it basically because I have so little left to lose and I'm too damned stupid to keep my mouth shut.

    Well, don't feel like the Lone Ranger, Editec. Many of us out here have seen all that they have worked for reduced to a small fraction of it's former value, while those that created this situation have really no loss. One less zero in their portfolio will not affect how they live at all. For the rest of us, that reduction directly affects the quality of our lives.

    And, as this levels out, guess who will be buying the devalued assets that we are selling just to survive? And who will be selling them at a large profit in five years, while the rest of us are just trying to get on our feet again? And yet, so many of us, especially as exemplified by many on this board, line up to kiss these theives asses.

    The Democrats have been the 'party of the rich' for at least a decade.

    I seem to recall Woodrow and FDR not hurting in the wallet.

    Ever notice that the peasants nearly always supported the King in every revolution, OR?

    They really do thinK: if but only the king knew how we suffered at the hands of his administration he'd do something about it.

    Well replace "the King" with either party in the USA or any dictator on earth and you'll understand that loyal partisant dupes are nothing new.

    Basically they're traitors to their class, but since they're so fucking stupid you pretty much have to give them a pass unless they're active participants in the crimes of the state.

    And no, I don't feel like the lone ranger.

    I know perfectly well that most Americans never had a chance in hell of making it, not even if they kept their mouths shut and their noses to the grindstone.

    I also know that the loyalty oath system in this nation works like this:

    When the man advances a lie, you'd better line up to swear to it or you won't be getting that Christmas Bonus like the good little tools willing to sign onto it will.

    Want a few recent examples?

    They hate us for our freedoms

    Mission Accomplished.

    "We are in Iraq because Saddam is working with Alqada", replaced by "We are in Iraq to stop him from getting nuclear weapons," replaced by "We are in Iraq to liberate the Iraqi fgrom oppression."

    And while I wasn't opn this board for the whole Iraqi mess, I have very little doubt that at least some of this board loyal tools advanced every one of those BIG LIES as they got the memo from King Rush that the justification for that disaster changed with time.

    That's how tools work, and that's exactly why Orwellian governments truly hate journalists and historians who REMEMBER what last week's BIG LIE was.

    you have to be rich to be involved in politics at the national level, the difference between the 2 parties is the democrats allow the small people to get some crumbs while the republicans vacuum up the crumbs and tryy to get a little bit more from the poorer people.
