Definition: government by the wealthy
An incomplete list, in no particular order, of all those who without their services our lives would not work. They are not wealthy:
school lunch worker
gas station attendant
newspaper delivery person
active duty military
And yet we so frequently hear politicians all of parties yammer on about "what the founding fathers wanted". Oh yeah, a large percentage of those dudes belonged to the plutocracy. So I guess that's the plan. I sure hope not.
Thank goodness for the leaders who are resisting this, such as Senators Amy Klobuchar and Bernie Sanders and Rep. Ted Lieu, to name just a few.
It is up to all of us to get our butts to the polls and vote and make sure the voices of those who are not members of the plutocracy (the people who live in gold-plated homes) shape the future of the United States.
