Wave Goodbye to Reagan's Idiot America
Yes. It’s all a joke. Only the joke’s on me. And the joke is on you…
Because no one can dispute that the top-two-percent has resoundingly succeeded in spreading its gospel of crony (er... laissez-faire) Capitalism (er... Democracy) around this planet. But in doing so has seemingly missed that it spoiled the joke -- especially for the once proud and the once mighty American Middle Class. And not surprisingly, this sudden realization -- that decades more Reagan-Bush-style financial profligacy is certain to lower living standards for 98% of us -- is not sitting at all well with the American electorate in an election year.
I liken the present situation to a friend's response years ago when I tried to convince him to watch Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room – “No thanks! I know how it ends.”
Eventually even Joe America Sixpack wises up. And the process has a name. And that name is Populism!
