Epitaph for American democarcy

It is now official. Big banks own the Democratic party and big oil and coal companies own the Republican party. The rest of us  are just a token.

In the absence of a third party, why even vote?

Hundreds of billions of dollars of tax payers’  money were spent to make the banks whole; the very banks whose greed and trickery have caused this near-depression anyway. And now to balance the budget, our elected officials ( big-money representatives) in Washington are saying working people should suffer more for the sins of their masters. And so in their infinite wisdom, they’re cutting social security, medicare, and Medicaid!

 Don’t forget also they’re cutting taxes for big oil, big banks, and millionaires and billionaires.

We’re getting screwed  on this seesaw back and forth.

For how long are we going to keep going to the polls and vote into office smooth talking politicians, owned by big money, and expect different results? Isn’t that the definition Einstein gave for stupidity?
