Does Anyone Disagree with this Message?

It cannot be stressed enough. Robert Reich’s message in this video needs to be shared by all who understand, or are seeking to understand, that the root cause of government dysfunction—the root cause of virtually all hot button issues setting Americans at loggerheads—is money in politics. For those who might be blaming the left or the right, it must be understood why BOTH are at fault, with few, individual exceptions.

This IS the number one issue. Listen to this video and share it. Tweet it. Post it where ever you can.

I don’t care if you are conservative, liberal, progressive or far, far right evangelical, this message is for everyone.

Who is there who does not agree with Reich?

    I couldn’t hear the audio but I still got at least part of the message. Resist!

    And having worked in progressive politics on a number of issues I finally decided that we must attack the root problem: money in politics.

    Trump and Sanders both attracted people who were upset that the government helps the elite and not us. Legalized bribery is the reason why.

    Meanwhile, Trump is still helping the elite (like himself) and not the people who put him in office, inspired by his message against “elite > US”. Wonder if they will ever get it?

    Sorry you couldn’t hear the audio.

    Will they ever get it? Many will not. But I really don’t think, if the trend continues, there will be enough support for his reelection and hopefully he won’t make it that far if Muller can wrap it up soon enough. I’m not sure, however, that Pence would be much better, certainly not on the legislative front.

    There seems to be a fundamentalist, steel-trap mindset across the far right. As long as Trump, et al continues to placate their animosities–and they do have plenty, many of which were created by the RNC–and he keeps telling them what he’s is doing for them (but not doing), they’d crawl through ten miles of poop and broken glass to vote for him even as he and his wealthy friends gorge themselves from the nation’s coffers.

    Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s recent award of a no-bid, eye popping $300-million contract to a friend and neighbor is a classic example of the deep and ongoing corruption.

    The irony is that it is clear Trump thinks as little of his base as anyone else because he turns on anyone at the slightest criticism.

    I think Pence is running the White House. Everything trunk has done is consistent with what the Koch brothers want, and Pence was their number one choice for president in 2012.

    When John Kasich was offered the White House he was told he would be in charge of domestic and foreign policy. What would Trump do? “He’d be making America grade again.”

    I think the Trump plan was to do what he did in business: someone else put up a building and Trump put his name on it. Someone else runs the White House and Trump puts his name on it.

      Lol at “trunk!” I’ve sometimes referred to him as a modern day Capt. Queeg (The Caine Mutiny), a loose cannon of a self-absorbed, paranoid captain who was quite capable of turning the ship upside down to find out who pilfered a can of strawberries and then dressing down a subordinate officer while steaming over his own tow cable.

      Trump is a deeply disturbed and insecure individual. His profound narcissism and sociopathy are but a mask, transparently betraying what lies beneath.

      “. . . making America grade again.” Hah, That’s a good one.

      Yes, and he still thinks that he can just hire his friends, generals and business acquaintances, tell them what he wants (from one moment to the next) and if they don’t, won’t, or can’t do it, he can fire them.

      The pundits keep saying that he’s not hiring vetted people as advisers and operatives. I don’t believe that. He knows exactly what he is doing when he hires nefarious characters and underhanded players (including his trained family). They just turn out to be rather incompetent (just like him).

    I couldn’t agree more. Money leads to power, power tends to corruption… what is there not to understand???

    Amazingly, some do not get it.

    Some people think political corruption is when elected representatives create policies that help people — in order to get votes. Apparently, this slimy tactic is particularly corrupt if the policies help poor people. In my view, far-right Christians are completely brainwashed by such ideology — despite everything Jesus said about riches, the poor, and loving your neighbor.

    Other people, like many liberals, cannot see, comprehend, acknowledge, or care that the 2016 Democratic Primary was rigged in Hillary Clinton’s favor. I guess they think the means justify the end. Even though we ended with Trump, and not Hillary, I don’t see them catching on.

    Enjoy your blog!
