The GOP puts forth a genuine plutocrat as their Presidential offering and a compulsive liar wannabe as their vice. A tollbooth world is what their puppet masters are shooting for. Amazingly, a conservative voice seems to be questioning the ideology and the world it will lead us to...
Our plutocracy now lives like the British in colonial India: in the place and ruling it, but not of it. If one can afford private security, public safety is of no concern; if one owns a Gulfstream jet, crumbling bridges cause less apprehension—and viable public transportation doesn’t even show up on the radar screen. With private doctors on call and a chartered plane to get to the Mayo Clinic, why worry about Medicare?
Revolt of the Rich If you prefer the cliff notes version this is an excellent read.
