    I'm not entertaining your fantasy analogies trying to compare Nazis to Democrats. It cheapens any decent argument you have.

    The nazis and the bolsheviks were just two sides of the centralized governent coin

    They just used slightly diggerent means to achieve the same gosl

    As for modern democrsts their economic plan is modeled on the nazis rather than the soviets

    Trump is pro-employer. He has done nothing to improve the working class. Trickle-down economics keeps getting sold to the public by the GOP even after it has been shown to be detrimental to the economy.

    It wouldn't require a consitutional amendment. It would require a law just like the presidential term limit that was passed after Roosevelt's death. It is a meaningless distinction, though, because such a law won't happen either. The best we can do is vote against incumbents to create the turnover.

    Why not use your motivation and talents to climb into the top 20%? Complaining won't help a thing.

    So ban lobbyists from DC, and permit them only when subpoenaed for testimony before Committees, escorted in and escorted out.

    None of this addresses what I said. It simply confirms that government is corrupt and incompetent.

    You missed the point. If we can legislate against cigarette advertising, we can legislate against political advertising. Does that help?

    No lobbyists play a useful role in keeping lawmakers informed. You just need to make it illegal to pay money to politicians or their campaigns.

    Firstly, I already am. Secondly, there will always be the bottom 20% and they have no voice. Just because you are in the bottom rung of society does not mean you lack motivation. It doesn't mean you're lazy.

    Look at our "President". Born into an ultra-wealthy family and given every chance to succeed. If Trump had not been born into wealth do you really think anybody would know who he is?

    The game is rigged.

    I will spare you the stories. Many, many people have made financial successes of themselves after being born into families of modest means. Nothing is rigged. Some people have an easier time than others. Some people are better at than others. That doesn't bar anyone from the American dream. All people are not created equal. They are only equal under the law.

    Do some research, see how many erstwhile 'lawmakers' end up working for said corporations, some even as lobbyists, AFTER they are no longer 'lawmakers'. ;)

    Again, if Trump had not been born into wealth we would never know his name.

    He certainly has yet to earn anything in a legit way> He was created by NBC and his base believed the phony that the Apprentice presnted. Had they not put him on TV he'd be a pauper by now. Prolly a small time angry NYC radio personality at best, making appearnces on Stern to lie about himself. It's disgusting anyone ever bought in on it.

    Yes. No doubt SCOTUS is staffed with political hacks just like Congress.

    I don't disagree. But I do know other successful names who beat the odds.
