I just read a Yahoo News story that I'd like to share with my readers...
|Yahoo News, 9/15/2014: Even as income for the affluent has accelerated, it's barely kept pace with inflation for most other people. ... Adjusted for inflation, government data shows that median household income... remains below its level before the recession began in late 2007. By contrast, the top 1 percent has thrived. Their incomes averaged $1.26 million in 2012, up from $466,302 in 1979, according IRS data. (Link).|
The article also notes that "the wealthy often manage to shield much of their income from taxes". Is this NOT good news?! :) :) :) :) And, this is during the administration of a dEmocrat pResident, no less! The only potential downside is that the American people finally get fed up enough to elect an actual pRogressive as the next POTUS (Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren, perhaps?).
But Lying Lester finds that incredibly unlikely, given how brainwashed the rAbble is by BS about how setting our job creators free via small government and deregulation is the answer. BS Lying Lester subscribes to, by the way.
Not because he has any illusions about such polices helping the rAbble, mind you. Lying Lester is FULLY aware that "fiscal conservatism" is code for economic policies that will benefit the wealthy class... which is just fine by Lying Lester.
Anyway, I think it is more likely that this happening under a dEmocrat president will cause more Americans to become disillusioned with the entire political process. And not bother to vote. Which means fewer of the rAbble will vote and the rich (who vote in greater percentages) will have the leverage to get a POTUS more in line with their values the next time out.
The primary and most important of these values being concentrating wealth at the top. Does this mean that the next president will be Gary Johnson or Mitt Romney? Possibly. Lying Lester could see either one as more than acceptable. Even a conservative dEmocrat.
All the candidates up for leading this nation in 2016 might very well be on the side of the wealthy, as they all have been for quite some time now. The ONLY thing Lying Lester fears is that a true pRogressive could win the nomination. But, as I already said, that is quite unlikely. The last thing this country needs is a president Sanders or a president Warren.
But as the rich continue to get richer and the Poors poorer, the question remains... will the American people realize why? Lying Lester is sure they will not. Which, as I already said - is, and will be extremely good news. Provided the trend toward oligarchy continues.
Slowly, under a dEmocrat administration, faster, under a rEpublican administration, or extremely quickly under a Libertarian administration (a Gary Johnson presidency, perhaps?).
