Of course there are dems feeding at the trough. And they are just as guilty as the rep's of using their legislative powers to funnel benefits back to their contributors. What they all have in common is that when it is time to vote in a pay raise it always go through. You and I have no say on that.Tedlark wrote: ↑Sat Jan 16, 2021 6:28 amSo are you saying that there are no dem politicians who push their way into the government feeding trough extracting benefits for themselves? So are you saying that there are no dem politicians who get wealthier while the rest of the country gets next to nothing? So are you saying that there are no dem politicians who continue to grift and lie to gullible dem supporters?seemoreroyals wrote: ↑Sat Jan 16, 2021 5:18 amNotes, you are your own worst enemy. Occasionally you show signs of being open to having rational discussions but as soon as someone does not embrace your false reality you ether attack or play the victim. You rail against Dems and government employees as if they are the only ones responsible for the mess we are in and that they are the only ones sucking off the government tit.
Meanwhile the rep's are pushing their way into the government feeding trough either by extracting benefits for themselves or by giving themselves tax cuts. Unfortunately most of this abuse is done by the top 1% greedy bastards that continue to get wealthier while the remainder of the country gets next to nothing.
The gullible that support these republican leaders continue to be lied to and the well connected continue to grift. And the country continues to get deeper and deeper in debt. And the hopes of finding a way out of this mess continues to diminish.
Open your other eye.
As far as helping the less fortunate in our society, the dem's are head and shoulders above the rep's in helping to create opportunities for the less fortunate. For example, my wife's father passed away when she was 8 years old. Her mother who had never worked before had to enter the work place. Her oldest brother as well had to work after school to help keep their head above poverty.
After high school my wife was able to go to college due to scholarships along with government programs that were available to the less fortunate and largely eliminated under the Reagan administration. Of the two parties, the rep's are by far the most sanctimonious. They use the abortion issue as a plank in their platform but they allow their leaders in both house and senate to condone and in many cases spread and expand on a morally corrupt president's lies. Most recently "I won the election by a landslide. They stole it from me."
