Politicians from both parties exploit voters on behalf of their big corporate bosses. —
polarized – divided or cause to be divided into two sharply contrasting groups or sets of opinions or beliefs.
“‘Polarization’ is the word most associated with the positions of the Republicans and Democrats in Congress. The mass media and the commentators never tire of this focus, in part because such clashes create the flashes conducive to daily coverage. The quiet harmony between the two parties created by the omnipresent power of Big Business and other powerful single-issue lobbyists is often the status quo. That’s why there are so few changes in this country’s politics. In many cases, the similarities of both major parties are tied to the fundamental concentration of power by the few over the many. In short, the two parties regularly agree on anti-democratic abuses of power…. Right now, both Parties are readying to give over $50 billion of your tax money to the very profitable under-taxed computer chip industry companies like Intel and Nvidia, so they can make more profit-building plants in the U.S. These companies are loaded with cash. They should invest their own money and stop the stock buyback craze. Isn’t that what capitalism is all about?” —Ralph Nader
Below is my repost of Ralph Nader’s article, “How the “Polarized” Political Parties Work Together Against the Public Interest.” – Ralph documents 16 crucial areas of Republican and Democrat accord, not discord.
“Both Parties,” declares Nader, “vote as if the American middle-class taxpayer is a sleeping sucker…. Sleep on America, you have nothing to lose but your dreams.”
