Who has caused our country to sway in the wind.  It started with George Bush I in his speech declaring a ONE WORLD ORDER.  In this One World Order they started diminishing the USA.  What happened next was with each succeeding administration they ran out all of the manufacturing to other parts of the world by raising the corporate taxes.

Who is the rich man Bush I who tells America – I am rich and can enjoy the pleasures of that world; but, I am going to take your world and money and share it with the world.  Just who does he think he is?  That is what is happening, folks.  They get to stay rich cause they have their money in banks outside of the USA and we are the suckers.

Good example is how many times have the government, banks, and Wall Street stolen our money and set us back; but, America continues like the ENERGIZER BUNNY – takes a lickin’ and keeps on tickin’.   SO FOLKS WE KNOW WHAT WE NEED TO DO  IN THE NEXT ELECTION – AND IT IS NOT TO ELECT A LAWYER POLITICIAN.



In the Clinton administration the dumbing down of America started in our class rooms with the modern math and lack of morality.  Remember the Clinton/Monica scandal and what “IS – IS?  The real problem is these lawyer politicians have used America’s wealth as their own piggy bank and have been distributing wealth throughout the world while letting our country decay with no remorse while filling their own pockets from lobbyists money.


During the George Bush II cycle, the spending started and George’s veto pen must have been out of ink because he allowed the Senate and Congress TO  spend and spend and the immigrants continued to pour into the country.


And then and then – the election of Obama has been planned for years and only made matters worse by even further decaying our country by a planned debt increase beyond sustainability.  So what is the answer.

We must elect Donald Trump who is a worldwide business –  who is not indebted to the lobbyists or Chamber of Commerce and is spending his own money for his own campaign.  THAT SHOULD TELL YOU SOMETHING because he wants to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

His first job has to be to enter the White House and exterminate the culture of corruption that is causing the pollution.  We have to try something different because what we are doing now is NOT WORKING AND GETTING WORSE.  Carson and Fiorina are not the answer – soft and kind will not work or get the job done.

We have to use a hammer to get the attention of these corrupt lawyer politicians because, again, all they are doing with the lobbyists is filling their own pockets.

For starters, we have  to investigate every agency and disband those which are not beneficial to the American people like the educational agency which should not exist and needs to be run by the each state, the EPA which should be run by the individual states, the IRS must be rid of the corruption and completely revamped, and especially the Attorney General’s office which has and is running over the American people and is not adhering to the Constitution.

Again, Trump would be the only person who is not tied to the hip with the lobbyists and Chamber of Commerce.  If Trump is not elected, it is my feeling our country will not survive.

I know you get tired of talking about Trump but I cannot say – elect Trump enough.  The forces are working against the people – just keep your thinking cap on and don’t let these people confuse you because they are working day and night to make Trump look bad. Good example are all of the media, including Fox, the New York Times, and Politico.  All of these Socialists and Communists know if Trump is elected they are doooomed.

Again, all of the Socialists Communists Muslims  like the New York Times, all of the media and the government are slowly trying to transform our country into a socialist state and diminish the people and the country into a third world status.  We must not allow this and continue to work to stop this now!  We must not be manipulated in the 2016 election.

The government and politicians have proven adept at hijacking your inborn inclination to conform your thinking to that of small tribal groups.  In effect, these same politicians’ primal inclination is to trim your opinions to those of the group to manipulate your perceptions of the economy by lieing to you in ways that jeopardize your future.


These political scientists may have just discovered why U.S. politics are a disaster.

(This is nothing new!)

By Ana Swanson October 7

Pictured on-screen, Carly Fiorina and Donald Trump, whose status as outsider politicians has helped boost their poll numbers in the Republican presidential race.

There’s a lot of disgust in America with politicians’ inability to get things done. In the race to win the Republican presidential nomination, that disgust has so far benefited outsider candidates. Non-career politicians Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina and Ben Carson have all promised to ride in and fix Washington.

But new research by Nolan McCarty, a professor at Princeton University, and other political scientists suggests this disgust — and America’s political dysfunction — won’t be that easy to fix. Working with political scientist Boris Shor and economist John Voorheis, McCarty has released a new study that shows that the growing ideological gap between the Republican and Democratic parties — a common obstacle to getting anything done in Washington — is not just due to politicians’ incompetence or their unwillingness to work together. It’s due, at least in part, to a deeper, structural problem: the widening gap between the rich and poor.

(And why is this gap – because the manufacturing jobs have been deliberately run out of the country to start the distribution of wealth – all caused by these lawyer politicians and decades of remorseless government spending out of an empty pocket have impoverished Americans and left most people facing a future they cannot afford.)

McCarty says he shares some of the disgust that Americans feel about polarized politics and gridlock in Washington. “But I think it’s important for readers and voters to understand . . . that these problems are not just simply because career politicians are acting in bad faith or, as Donald Trump would say, they’re stupid losers. They’re really deep structural problems,” he says.

How the widening gap between the rich and poor has changed politics in America

By looking at extensive data on U.S. states over the past few decades, the researchers show that the widening gap between the rich and the poor in recent decades has moved state legislatures toward the right overall, while also increasing the ideological distance between those on the right and those on the left.

This map below shows the Gini coefficient, a measure of income inequality, for each state going back to 1997. A lower Gini figure indicates that people in the state are earning more equal incomes, while a higher one (marked here in darker green) shows that incomes are more unequal. (You can disregard the axes here — they just show latitude and longitude.)
From “Unequal Incomes, Ideology and Gridlock: How Rising Inequality Increases Political Polarization,” by John Voorheis, Nolan McCarty and Boris Shor.

The paper argues that this trend has gone hand in hand with the growing political divide. The states that have the highest levels of inequality, or the fastest growth in equality, have also tended to see the most political polarization, the paper says.

Using a scale of state legislator ideology that looks at annual surveys of the beliefs of candidates since the mid-1990s, the researchers map where Democrats have shifted to the left and Republicans have shifted to the right at the state level. The map below gives an ideological “score” in each state for each chamber — in most states, a House of Representatives and a Senate.

A more negative score and a deeper blue color on the map indicate that the state chamber is more liberal, while a positive score and deeper red color show the state is more conservative. You can see that blue states have become bluer and red states redder since 1997. A look at party composition in each state shows the same trend.

It’s not just that these two trends of inequality and polarization are happening simultaneously. The researchers use statistical methods to eliminate other factors and show that a state’s income inequality has a large, positive and causal effect on its political polarization. Furthermore, these results have increased in magnitude in recent years and seem to be concentrated in the states that are “reddest” by the end of the sample.

In other words, growing inequality is a strong force pushing both parties farther from the center.

The paper doesn’t specifically say why this happens, except that politics gets more polarized with each election. It appears that people on either end of the economic spectrum have been developing even more different political preferences and electing people to represent those preferences.

(The people are not stupid – they know what these lieing lawyer politicians are doing to them and are not doing what the American people have sent them to do – they are constantly working against the Peoples’ wishes.)

Interestingly, however, the study shows that inequality is affecting the two parties in different ways.

First, the researchers find that Democrats as a whole have shifted farther to the left than the Republicans have to the right, with very liberal Democrats becoming even more liberal. But at the level of the state legislature, they find that ideology as a whole has shifted slightly to the right. The reason is that there has been a change in the partisan balance, with Republicans winning more seats from moderate Democrats over time.

“As the Democrat party has shrunk nationally over the course of the last 15 years, the disproportionate effect has been the replacement of moderate Democrats with Republicans, and that has tended to happen most often in states with high levels of inequality, or where inequality is growing the fastest,” McCarty said.
The map below, which shows the percentage of seats held by Republicans, illustrates how that has happened. The percentage of seats held by Republicans has increased, especially through the South and middle America, since 1997:

What this means for America’s future, and for voters.

This study offers evidence that inequality leads to political polarization. Though they have yet to produce definitive findings, the researchers also believe, as many others in their field do, that political polarization also in turn produces more inequality, creating a vicious feedback loop of inequality and polarized politics.

How does that work? Not only are more conservative lawmakers less likely to favor redistribution, the political gridlock that results from having a more polarized system makes it harder to pass bills that might reduce income inequality, such as increasing the minimum wage, strengthening union bargaining power, or increasing redistribution through welfare, researchers say.

The research suggests that political polarization is not just a product of gerrymandering, the way districts are drawn, or caused by features of the state political system, such as having closed partisan primaries, McCarty says.

Instead, he argues that America’s political polarization is a reflection of bigger, broader changes in the United States, in particular that the country has become much more diverse in terms of its economic, racial and ethnic makeup than it was in the 1950s. The diversity, unsurprisingly, has a direct impact on the political system, and we have yet to figure out how to repair the system to reflect a more diverse society, McCarty says.

So what does this mean for average voters in the near term? For one, they should be skeptical of candidates who promise an easy fix to political dysfunction in Washington.

“These are deep, complicated problems, and people need to think big picture about what underlies them.
