"The American future will be a struggle between a dwindling minority of hardworking affluent taxpayers and an insurgent underclass of improvident tax-dependents. "

The two national parties seek only to satisfy the interests that put them into office,
which means, in effect, that a majority of American taxpaying citizens have been disenfranchised, and power is nominally transferred to a welfare-dependent underclass, whereas in reality it is the politicians and bureaucrats, working in tandem with the greatest business interests, who monopolize actual power. Even rather rich people are powerless.America: A Growing Servility

Your Say

yes, but "Approved" is still my all-time favorite. It's the highlight of my grocery shopping. Slide the card and wait for the warm acceptance of digital solvency.

"Approved." We don't hear it enough.

This comes to a halt when there are no more taxpayers, just taxeaters.

Just to press on this a bit...tax-dependents are growing, and they are likely to dominate, if they don't already. But there's a business class that will profit too.

Government is a two-handed puppet. Tax-dependents elect, and monied interests direct. Not everyone with money will benefit, of course, but you can be certain that wealth and power stands to gain.
