  •  Too many of the peons (3+ / 0-)

    benefit from the crumbs of the 1percent. Whenever a military base is slated to close the states entire congressional delegation goes into overdrive to stop it. If a congressperson agreed with the closing or simply didn't go into a frenzy to save it, they would be done forever in politics.

    All the peons who work for defense contractors support the system. Sadly nowadays those jobs often seem like premium jobs. Even people who work for outsourcing companies are okay with it if they get a paycheck from the sales or shipping or whatever. We've also got jobs in prisons. Healthcare jobs are often the most numerous categories in many small cities, so while people know the healthcare system is FUBAR they don't mind so much if they have a steady job from it.

    Ideally people wouldn't take jobs with companies that didn't behave well but I certainly understand how people would figure any job is better than no job.
