Regardless if you like Hillary or Jeb, the fact that the same small group of people and family members continuing to hold so much power in this country should give us all pause
Reb will you quit ignoring my children pls? Its not ok, even if you are a tranny. Youre being quite immature sweetie.
Why do you wear skirts? Are you a transvestite?
Yeah hes a tranny. He wants to be a girl.
I always knew this guy was a queer tranny
I know right? Damn skirt wearing trannies.
Ur a pot smoking hippy. U need to get a job boy.
U hear me boy? Take that damn skirt off too. Its disgraceful.
Ok, ignore land. Bye Felicia.
That's why at the start of this election I was equally against both Bush and Clinton getting elected. Now jebs out, got my fingers crossed that hillary doesn't get in the WH
Actually, I've never done any research on it but my guess would be that the percentage of children and siblings going into the family business is probably no greater in politics than it is in other professions.
Well, we vote for them, don't we? For good reason too; they're among the most experienced and politically knowledgeable leaders in the country.
You know who else was considered the most experienced and best suited for the job? Nixon
On the other hand we have Lincoln who was considered very inexperienced
My gut reaction to this was yes it is a problem. But history might say not so fast. Adams, Roosevelt, Kennedy, Bush and Clinton probably rank, as a group, in the upper half of the politicians and presidents that we have had.
Who the hell is "jeb"???
Jeb! was the guy we were suppose to coronate on the republican side, but he ended up only getting 4 delegates.
After all the money he spent, those four delegates were the second biggest waste of money right after that failed $1.5T fighter jet
It is certainly a concern, but not as much as the big money and the media that basically control everything.
Do you not realize they are partners in crime? The moneyed interests have no power without govt.
Scott nailed it. The politicians control the media
No, I disagree. The money that controls the politicians, also controls the media
They're one and the same. What are you disagreeing with?
However, the wealthy elite have no power without govt. That's their enforcement arm. If our politicians weren't selfish and greedy then they wouldn't take the graft and bribes and we would have a more free society. It's mind-boggling how liberals don't see the obvious.
Actually they are all payed for by the Globalist Elite Billionaires such as Soros for example
It's not the politicians you see that control things. The real power is in those you don't see.
Which politicians don't we see, Bob?
The ones that we do see are the part that we can actually do something about.
Kscott.....the power, we don't see, is not with the politicians. It's with the people at control the politicians.
That's a chance shallow and naive view of power struggles. The only reason the wealthy control the politicians is because the politicians take their money in exchange for favors. If they actually did their job of representing the people instead of being "on-the-take" then the wealthy would have no power. The politicians truly have the power.
You are only seeing the surface. There is a lot more underneath.
Please enlighten me
Not the proper forum here. Look at who controls BIG banking (not just in this country) and Fed Reserve.
Bankers control the world banks. Gov't politicians make and enforce the rules. They work together.
It's not "whatever". If you fail to see this simple relationship then you're part of the problem.
If you think the Board of Corporators are who runs the huge banks, then I don't know what to tell you. Have you ever wondered why the Federal Reserve is private corporation?
I don't think anyone here is disputing there are some big corporate interests involved in pushing us around. The point you are arguing against (I think) is they are conspiring with elected officials that are up for reelection in a couple of months and thus are much easier to remove from their position of power.
This is a house of cards we are dealing with, and it really doesn't matter which card you pull out, it will fall regardless.
You're not making any sense, Bob
