Why is it even in the form of a question?

Downturned economies like the one we have right now are really where the rich get richer. At times like this, middle-class and poor people are desperate to survive and will end up selling their assets for pennies on the dollar,(or working for pennies on the dollar). There's no doubt in my mind that the current financial crisis was set in place on purpose and was planned. All the rich have to do is sit around and wait while the economy gets worse and worse, then when it's at the definitive bottom they snatch everything up for fire-sale prices, and then 5 years later sell it back to the people they bought it from for x2-x3 as much.

Rinse and Repeat. The gap gets ever wider.

I'll tell you what, in the accounting classes I've taken, the system they use to track and document cash flow is such an illogical mind-fuck the only logical reason I've seen to use it is to hide money and make income look confusing to the average person.

yes, that's exactly what I've thought about accounting as well. It's job preservation also, many professions do that. But the system has been stacked in favor of the rich from Reagan and on. We basically had a 70 year stretch in this country where it wasn't. That's over with now.

That's the problem, we as a nation have been turned into complacent idiots. It's easier to just believe and do what other people tell us then to think about the problem ourselves.

Voting Democrat won't be making much of a difference for the "poor" people any ways. Matter of fact. Look at all the rich Democrats that parade around Congress, giving themselves raises and then pretending to care about anyone else.

If you seriously want to do something. Work hard and don't depend on anyone for handouts.

And here is a favorite quote of mine. I can't remember who said it. "Democracy will only last until the people realize they can vote themselves money out of the treasury."

Look at the average red neck neocon tea party member. They are usually rural and don`t have a pot to piss in. The shop at Wal Mart and the height of their culture is watching NASCAR on TV with a 6 pack. They have been brainwashed into actually believing the right wing elite really ccare about them and will go out en mass and do their bidding which is cutting all our throats.

I don`t think Americans have it in them to revolt....
The media has desensitized and made us indifferent. We don't care anymore....

Lol voting demo makes far more of a positive impact for poor people and the middle class than voting republican does.
