This is because you've been lied to about what the parties are about. The Republican party is not about the wealthy, the Republican party is the party that believes in true equality for all.<quoted text>
The rich people sure have a lot of non-rich suckers fighting for them. Some people are just fools. I say that the rich should fight their own battles. Why are all these working-class stiffs fighting for the greedy people who don't care about them? You pointed out how CEOs are getting rich. What about the average worker? Nothing.
It's never enough with these corporations. Remember the time when there wasn't a delivery charge for pizza delivery? These companies were making enough money, but it's never enough. They want more and more. It's just funny that most the people who stick up for these corporations are barely making it.
The U.S. has some of the worst Internet speeds in the developed world, but people are paying a premium for those terrible speeds. They also can't wait to "nickle and dime" customer with their data caps. Pathetic. Yet there are fools who will fight for their rights to be price gouged by the rich.
I don't blame corporations. If they can get these fools to vote against their own best interests, why not do it? The bottom line is this: If you aren't making at least $100,000, you shouldn't be a Republican(unless you are a religious nutjob).
I'm a proud independent. I could just as easily rant about the Democratic party, but at least the people voting for the Democratic party aren't voting against their own financial best interests.
Democrats love to divide Americans into groups, and then pick the winners and losers.
Gay vs straight, smokers vs non-smokers, rich vs poor, working vs non-working, black vs white..........
Of course Democrats vote for their best interest, and their best interest is stealing money from other people to give to them. But oh, they are not greedy, only wealthy people who earned their money are greedy.
What I laugh about are the fools who complain about CEO's and their pay, but then deal or invest in those very same companies. But those ever so concerned Americans are not about to take a stand. They will never do without their cell phone, their landline, their internet, their fast food, nothing. They will continue to deal with all these companies no matter how much the CEO makes.
Yeah, but speaking of cell phones, internet and cable, who do you think is paying for all those free services for other people? That's right, the paying customers. When these liberals get their panties wet about how poor people don't have this or that, they mandate it and those companies charge us--the working people.
