To keep the masses under control, t’were best to hide that they’re being controlled.
Or, for that matter, America’s citizenry…asking for 4 more years of record high job losses and gas prices, record low GDP growth, record drops in household income?
The bonds of tyranny rest more comfortably on those who don’t realize they’re chained.
Politicians provide that tyranny…and a compliant news media cushion it with velvet.
Ask yourself…why, after 50 years and trillions of dollars, are we still losing the War on Poverty? Why can’t we control Illegal Immigration? Why have our schools failed?
The answer’s simple…it’s not in certain politicians’ best interests to solve these issues.
(Because then those issues remain EXPLOITABLE…!)
Consider – high school and college graduates, recent immigrants (legal or otherwise), and the poor (by definition) are usually at the lower end of the wage scale.
A vast array of demographic polling reveal low income voters favor the Democrat Party.
But, as personal income rises past the $50k-per-year mark and they learn free-market enterprise systems benefit and empower them more than government handouts, they migrate to the party supporting that concept – the Republican Party.
Based on this proven demographic, if a Democrat Party doesn’t want to continually be losing their voter base, it’s in that Party’s best interest to hide the fact that free markets expand individual opportunity - and government control suppresses that opportunity…
They must keep their ‘loyal’ following poor! (Or, failing that, maintain a critical backup program to replenish the losses; i.e. a porous ill-managed immigration system.)
So the next time you wonder why an elected highly-educated elite can’t solve the War on Poverty as they spend $1 trillion a year of our tax dollars on ineffective programs …
…or why an elected highly-educated elite can’t solve problems of Illegal Immigration…
…or why an elected highly-educated elite fail to build an effective education system…
…remember what the Democrat Party needs to keep getting elected to office…
Sadly, poverty, poor education, and illegal immigration are more advantageous as an Exploitable issue to the Party that needs them to stay in power…Democrats.
If solved, the same deplorable conditions – poverty, poor education, porous/uncontrolled immigration - are devastating to that Party’s politicians!
Thus, these highly-educated elite politicians hammer ineffective policy into Chains…
…and the mainstream media make Velvet their constricting grip.
