The United States government is being downsized right out of existence. The average citizen doesn’t stand a chance against corporate America and billionaire donors and rapacious lobbyists. Those guys wave a little money and elected officials salivate like Pavlov’s dogs. They sit up and beg, roll over, fetch, play dead, the usual tricks of an obedient, well-trained pet.
You and I, we have no influence, none. We’re the trees falling in the forest no one hears.
Gone are the days of consumer protections and Internet neutrality, Wall Street oversight and public education, gun restrictions, it’s all just so bothersome and intrusive. The government has no business playing a role in our lives. And we shouldn’t expect the ultra wealthy to pay taxes or force them to conform to any standards in their business operations. Give them a break; they have better things to do with their money.
The prison system, air traffic control, the park system, healthcare, why mess with that stuff? Hand it over to the private sector, let them strip it bare and make a fortune. They do such a fabulous job, just look at air travel and / or banking — two extremely efficient industries. So what if you’re beaten senseless and robbed blind, this is America, dammit. Be grateful you weren’t shot reaching for your car keys.
We don’t have a government. We have a hostile takeover.
