Political cartoonists are some of our most clever people. With simple caricatures and a few words they are able to capture the essence of an important issue facing the people. In my opinion, this cartoon which I borrowed from Zero Hedge, explains perfectly why Americans on Main Street do not feel like the government is working in your best interests.
That’s exactly right, isn’t it? The well being of the folks on Main Street was not a fundamental of interest to our central planners in Washington, D.C. Your well being was not a part of their calculus. Instead, they used your tax dollars and mortgaged the future earnings of your children and grandchildren and their children to prop up the banking cartel and their Wall Street cronies. One percent of the One Percent Club are enjoying a tremendous recovery while you are left sucking wind. Of course, they tell us that they saved from having to suffer a horrible economic melt down, which is true, but what they don’t tell us is that their methods are setting the stage for a much worse melt down in the near future. That is not a flaw in their plan; it’s a feature.
The President doesn’t give a damn about you folks on Main Street. Oh, he talks a good game. He fancies himself as the Middle Class Warrior. Really? What the hell has he done for middle class since he’s been president; other than screw them over by making them pay through the nose for his unaffordable Affordable Care Act and flood the country with illegal immigrants to help his US Chamber of Commerce cronies keep their labor cost down.
Does anybody really think the likes of John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and John McClain go to their offices every day to represent you? They are only interested in protecting their positions of power and getting reelected. Period! The sad truth is, with few exceptions, people do not get into politics to serve you. They get into politics to benefit themselves.
The nation’s Attorney General hates you. He thinks you are all a bunch of racist cowards. The IRS thinks you are all A-holes. The EPA is working overtime to raise your cost of living and lower your standard of living. The CIA sees you as pawns in their game of geo-political chess. And, the NSA thinks you have no rights at all.
Judge Andrew Napalitano use to open his program with this question: “Does the government work for you or do you work for the government?” The answer is pretty clear, isn’t it?
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
