Republicans pander to the corporations.
Democrats pander to different corporations.
Republicans make promises to rich people and middle class people.
Democrats make promises to the poor people and the middle class people. No promises are never kept, unless there's something in it for somebody. The poor get poorer, even with democrats in power. The country gets poorer because the wars.
When a man stands up against all that, he is black-balled. We all know who that one man is.
Put that in your pipe (all of you) and smoke it.
