From one news TV show to another, the American public is watching the “effect”, but no one is talking about the “cause”. The “effect” is the insurrection. The “effect” is the number of people who voted for a man who lied to them all the time. But what is the “cause” behind all this anger permeating across our society, and expressing itself in different and strange ways? From violent racists to loony suburban mothers, from unstable veterans to unrepentant firefighters. For the answer, we must ask corporate America why Trump voters are so angry. When big business steals your house, and you have no way to take it back, then you storm it out of deep anger.
Corporate America stole Congress from the people, and the people are responding with anger that Trump focused against the Democrats in the form of QAnon. The culprits, though, without a doubt, are all the lobbyists who descend on Washington in droves to write the laws to favor the richest people in America. The culprit is the real “Big Steal” in the form of corporate America stealing Congress from us.
No one is talking about the “cause” because it betrays the interests of too many people, organizations, and news media. It’s hush, hush. As I said in an earlier Blog, America is a country of corporations, not people.
When big business steals your house, and you have no way to take it back, then you storm it out of deep anger.
WHAT IS THE ANSWER TO CORPORATE CORRUPTION?
The answer is before us in the form of HR-1, a House bill to diminish the impact of corruption in politics. The Democrats realized, while they were asleep at the helm, what the combination of a runaway corrupt Congress dancing in tandem with the notorious and undemocratic interests of big business are doing to our country. All of it accelerated many times over by Donald Trump to break apart our country hoping for a dictatorship.
The Republicans realize the same thing, but unlike the Democrats, they need to harness Trump’s success by corralling the anger to the benefit of the party. It’s a rope walk like no other. And each political move or maneuver, for the GOP, is fraught with unmitigated risks. The split over the Republican strategy stares us in the face everyday as the leadership battle each other for their vision of the future of the party.
Congress is our House. Big Business has no right to steal it from the people, and corrupt it to its very core.
ASK CORPORATE AMERICA WHY TRUMP VOTERS ARE SO ANGRY
The American people are angry because Congress no longer works for them. It has been taken hostage, through illicit money, by corporate America, and as long as the stock market is going up, the corporate hyenas have no intention of letting go of the Congress that lays them eggs of gold every new cycle.
Hopefully, HR-1, if it passes the Senate and President Joe Biden signs it into law, we will begin the process of healing this country from the Reagan years when the collapse of the middle class saw its dawn. That collapse culminated with the insurrection, and unless we reverse the trend by yielding control of Congress to the people, as the Founding Fathers envisioned it, storming the Capitol is going to look like a walk in the park.
The answer to corporate corruption is HR-1. When big business steals your house, and you have no way to take it back, then you storm it.
When Trump says the system is rigged, he is right. Although he neglected to tell you that he and his billionaire buddies rigged it.
FORBID CORPORATE AMERICA FROM WRITING OUR LAWS
America has this ethical habit of calling out other countries, like Iran and Venezuela, for their corruption. Corruption that third-world countries often practice under the table. But for some reason, we can’t seem to find the courage to call out our own corruption. The worst part? It is all legal and above board. Corporate America needs not worry about under the table deals, it practices it over the table and spits it in your face. The CEO’s of 500 Fortune companies own Congress lock, stock, and barrel. That’s our house, not theirs to own and corrupt.
We must end the practice of corporate lobbyists writing our laws to benefit the very few. This is how it works.
Lobbyists write the laws that help corporations lock in more revenues. Either through usurping the rights of the consumers or through corporate socialism (Government free money). There are two benefactors to this scheme. The big shareholders who see their dividend income and stock prices soar, and the CEO’s who learned to add exorbitant bonuses to their salaries to compensate them for their lobbying efforts.
The bonuses resulting from the normal day-to-day business is not enough for these greedy bastards. Most of their contracts have clauses that accelerates their bonuses as the stock rises. When Trump says the system is rigged, he is right. Although he neglected to tell you that he and his billionaire buddies rigged it.
The “cause” of the violence and the instability in the country today is because corporate America stole our House.
THE “CAUSE” FOR OUR TURMOIL IS THE SUPER GREED OF CORPORATE AMERICA
The “cause” of the violence and the instability in the country today is because corporate America stole our House. If both, Democrats and Republicans, are smart, they would take the steps to return it to the people for their business. As long as the people of this nation feel shorted in their pockets by the super greed of the rich, there will be many more insurrections to come. In one form or another.
Why do we have to wait for our own Bastilles? History taught us a lesson, let us not ignore it.
