  •  Sorry, I don't buy any rational story behind this (12+ / 0-)

    the ultra elites are slamming their fists on all the tables they own, stirring up division, noise, lies... shock and awe.

    They will do anything to maintain their wealth and their privilege. So much so that they keep us fighting rearguard actions as they pull the center of political gravity further to the right.

    This isn't about the base or the president or the Democrats. This is about the ease with which 40-55% of the electorate can be swayed to vote very much against their own interests.

    •  They absolutely dread the possibility (2+ / 0-)

      of a progressive tax policy. And if the Democrats win the day it will be because the people are giving them a mandate to implement one.

      Whether of not they actually do will be another matter.

      •  Their psychopathology fascinates me (1+ / 0-)

        They can't deal with handing over 3-5% more of their insane wealth? To keep their country afloat?

        They'll unleash all this ugliness on all of us over 3-5% of income that literally measures in the HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS A YEAR?

        It just shocks me. They are so sick.

      It pains me to agree with your comment because I fear there is so much 'noise' that it's difficult to properly analyze the facts. I know that is intentional..That and your point about swaying 40+% of the electorate against their own best interests is both true and pathetic.

      you're gonna get what you give
