  •  The 1% are scared because if enough people band (5+ / 0-)

    together and stand against them then they are toast. They know this and do everything they can to keep the 99% divided. The rich side with Republicans, racists, fundamentalists, anyone who can stir division as they seek power for themselves. They fund the most strident of extremists whose voices dominate and drown out reasonable discourse so that they appear stronger than they are.  The polls show a big majority want to tax the rich but the GOP still refuses to budge. Studies have been done to show how the trickle down theory is a failure.

    Cracks in their coalitions are becoming more obvious and will eventually break. The faster the better.

      "The brown person is taking your job"
      "The black person has destroyed your neighborhood"
      "The welfare queen is taking your tax money"

      In the south, the poor whites are sometimes the most racist, because having at least one person lower than they, in status or income, is a threat to that lower person trying to climb up over their back.

      While the poor whites hate the poorer blacks, the rich get wealthier off keeping both of them poor.

      "Privatize to Profitize" explains every single Republican economic, social and governing philosophy. Take every taxpayer dollar from defense, education, health care, public lands, retirement - privatize it, and profit from it.
