The middle class destroyed itself by voting for those assholes.
Cynically crafted oppression. Just enough misery for profitable exploitation without the pesky interruptions of labor going on strike. It continues: Just enough bread and circuses to keep the machine running. Gotta love it!

The part about Lewis Powell sent chills down my spine. The man had no heart.

If you read the Lewis Powell memo, it's hard not to walk away seeing him as a dystopian dictator, or at least the man behind that dictator. But he was so much more - a guiding light for an American oligarchy, human oppression and ruthless capitalism.

“The cultural left has managed to associate the Democratic party with a series of views on crime, immigration, policing, free speech and of course race and gender that are quite far from those of the median voter. …

... Democrats lost the nationwide popular vote by 3 points (48-51), along with control of the House. Working class Democratic support declined…..again (down 9 margin points). Hispanic support declined….again (down 11 points). Black support declined….again (down 14 points). Republicans got 40 percent of the Hispanic working class House vote and 45 percent among Hispanic men. They got 19 percent among black men, According to an AARP/Fabrizio Ward/Impact Research post-election survey, Democrats did not do any better among these demographics in competitive House districts. They did however clean up in these districts among white college graduate women, carrying them by 34 points”.

If the GOP wins in 2024, that will be on the menu, like it or not.....

If they win it will be because they bought their way in, with money that used to be considered bribe money, until they passed laws making bribery legal.

Then they will have to return the favor, and they will - with taxpayer dollars.

Were it not for legal bribery, the Republican party would be weak. And the middle class would have never died.

We can thank SCOTUS and Citizens United for legal bribe money, and Billions of it!!
