Yes, Lauren, I would agree that you can’t sell this brand of predatory capitlism to any intelligent person. Right now we are in an aligarchy kind of capitalism where a few are sucking the many dry.
Corporations have bought up our government and made a mockery of democracy. The GOP has been totally bought up, but there is a revolution growing among the Democrats aimed at restoring economic balance that has the Wall Street oligarchs terrified, and dangerously mad, mad enough to kiss up to Trump.
The military industrial complex is always pushing for war, the drug companies for high prices and the oligarch controlled GOP is constantly looking to kill off social programs that benefit average citizens.
