My favourite quote from John Steinbeck, America is vicious and the poor have been brainwashed by their fox news media
I am of the poor class, I am of the working class, and I am of the 'american' geographical location. I have been brainwashed, I can admit that I was brainwashed because I found the truth. About the government, about history, and about religion. But sometimes those who accuse others of being brainwashed and ignorant, are that themselves.

It reminds of a quote from a movie "The Usual Suspects".

"The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. And like that, poof. He's gone."


Just replace the word Devil with Aristocrat, which is not even much of a stretch.


It is somewhat true though. There are complete freeloaders here that get welfare, foodstamps, and rental assistance. The are somehow able to breed and take care of their you soon to be freeloaders, but can't work? I know that even if we got rid of the freeloaders, the government would find some other way to waste the money. Point is they are telling a half truth.
First off its important to note that the distribution of wealth and social mobility are absolutely atrocious within the US.

A lot of these people who you would deem to be freeloaders are such because of low pay. These people have jobs, but the money they make isn't sufficient to pay their bills and they are forced to acquire govt assistance.

The best method to make money in the US is to take it from the govt. Corporations, such as wal-mart, use the govt assistance program to make up for their low pay. It costs the govt billions upon billions of dollars every year.


The number one reason the govt is so inefficient is due to special interests, aka the aristocrats. The solution offered by the Republicans is to just give complete control to the aristocrats, thus eliminating the small voice the people have. Obviously the entity responsible for making govt so ineffective is exactly the people you want in charge to fix the wasteful nature of the govt.

The republican platform is so idiotic its laughable. Which is why they never explain it to anyone. Todd Akin made that mistake just recently....
