Intelligence has very little to do with it.
It is the perception of what people believe, and if so, then WE ALL are victims and You Woody, are blaming innocent victims.
Clearly money is at the root of the problem evidenced by our tax code being over 76,000 pages long.
Half our budget goes directly to the Pentagon contractors, with $Billions and $ Billions of waste and fraud. Corporate welfare, subsidies, loopholes, et cetera.
now you are on the tax code?!? why?

my facts were clear and verifiable. i am not a victim, you are because you refuse to act or even acknowledge the truth, until you do you will always be a victim...

Why do you think it is very profitable to be in Congress who only works for 3 days a week with great lifetime benefits?
All the rest of their time is on the phone soliciting funds for the next election.
This is corrupt and dysfunctional too me.

With all due respect I disagree with you wholeheartedly.

Why do you think Wall Street backs both parties?

The answer is so who ever wins they win also.

The game is rigged......

... PERIOD.

Personally I am not a victim even though the Congress mostly votes in the interest of the top 1% of the wealthy and against the 99% of all the rest of us.

Which I am sure you are part of also? 99%?

8 years of Bush and Cheney mostly benefited the wealthiest with the tax code while most State and Local taxes went way up.

That's why.

Plus, Bush and Cheney did not pay for two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Biggest Progressive Victory of 2014 So Far Was Against Obama, Not With Him / February 21, 2014 / http://tinyurl.com/kel3ehj
Since we are only seven weeks into 2014 I feel confident calling President Obama’s decision to remove the chained-CPI Social Security benefit cut from his budget the biggest victory for progressives so far this year.
The change is bigger than simply the removal of a line from a budget. It symbolizes a victory over the entitlement-cutting “grand bargain” forces because it is an acknowledgement by Obama his hope is basically dead. This is a fight that has been going on for years against some of the best-funded organizations in Washington. A policy which would have hurt millions of Americans and made our retirement crisis worse appears to have been stopped – for now.
It is a sad comment about the current state of politics that the biggest progressive victory so far this year wasn’t a victory with the Democratic President, but a victory against him. While Obama did technically remove chained-CPI, he was the one who put it there in the first place. He is the one who has been consistently pushing for a grand bargain for years. He was the one who forced the Democratic party to temporarily back such a destructive and deeply unpopular position.

My suggestion is for all Unions, Liberals, and Progressives to leave the Democratic party and join together with like minded people for a viable third party.

Same is true with all authentic Conservatives and Libertarians to leave the Republican party and join together with like minded people for a viable fourth party.

NOW WAS THAT SO HARD?

LOL

True, but when Bush was running for president in 2000 he promised the bottom half of all tax payers will benefit the most from his tax cuts.

NOT TRUE, Bush Lied, most of his tax cuts went to the wealthy few.

And today all Americans are still paying for the Bush/Cheney two wars that were not paid for.

Absolutely False.

99% is REAL and only the politicians in collusion with corporate rightwing and corporate mainstream media want you to believe differently.

OK, so you believe you are represented in Congress?

I do not.

I am much closer to the truth than you.

For the most part how come Americans who retired in the 1950s, 60s, 70s and even early 1980s had good pensions and could live comfortably?

The employers put some of the employees salary into a pension fund which grew in interest.

The 401ks terminated that system and tuned it into a gambling casino with the Stock Market.

Why was Glass/Steagall first implemented 1933?

Why did Bill Clinton and all the Newt Gingrich Republicans terminate Glass/Steagall?

Excellent point on your part.

BUT, a third and fourth party will not take big money so if they get elected they will not be obligated to vote for Wall Street interests.

They can be allowed to vote in Woody's interest, and Link TV's interest.

Right? or Wrong?

Yes, the Bush tax cuts were across the board BUT mostly befitted the wealthy few and not the bottom half that Bush promised.

How Greed Destroys America
June 28, 2011 / http://tinyurl.com/3laykzo
Exclusive: New studies show that America’s corporate chieftains are living like kings while the middle class stagnates and shrivels. Yet, the Tea Party and other anti-tax forces remain determined to protect the historically low tax rates of the rich and push the burden of reducing the federal debt onto the rest of society, a curious approach explored by Robert Parry.
If the “free-market” theories of Ayn Rand and Milton Friedman were correct, the United States of the last three decades should have experienced a golden age in which the lavish rewards flowing to the titans of industry would have transformed the society into a vibrant force for beneficial progress.
After all, it has been faith in “free-market economics” as a kind of secular religion that has driven U.S. government policies – from the emergence of Ronald Reagan through the neo-liberalism of Bill Clinton into the brave new world of House Republican budget chairman Paul Ryan.
By slashing income tax rates to historically low levels – and only slightly boosting them under President Clinton before dropping them again under George W. Bush – the U.S. government essentially incentivized greed or what Ayn Rand liked to call “the virtue of selfishness.”
Further, by encouraging global “free trade” and removing regulations like the New Deal’s Glass-Steagall separation of commercial and investment banks, the government also got out of the way of “progress,” even if that “progress” has had crushing results for many middle-class Americans.
