    Dutch Wrote: Sorry Arizona; it is not the terrorist; it is the government itself which is destroying this country. As long as nothing is done to the "base laws" and "laws" for Presidents and his cronies, nothing will change. I wrote about that many times. Trump can scream and holler all he likes; it is the "system" which allows it. Put an end to that! Amen!
    Dutch, Its all about money. Give people living wages and they will have hope, make plans and have something to live for. Put them in stress and they will cling to or support anything they can identify with. Treat people well and they will act reciprocally.

    it is far rightism. In the last 60 years a humanitarian life style has been stolen from the working people under the guise of moderation and centrism. There has been no centrism regarding the working class. It has been steady take away from the working class while passing every law possible letting the .001 % hoard more money cheaper, faster and easier. Neighbors being sold out by neighbors while giving the benefits to the top %. Money has to be treated like a resource and regulated back into the economy.

    Spend money. Making and taking huge sums of money out of the economy is wrong. Nobody has a right to impoverish people. Make as much money as you can but either spend the majority of it or lose it. The life of an economy is spending money

    Trumps tax cut immediately took 1.5 Trillion dollars of spending out of the economy. There is no other result than a recession. Got that Trump???

    Democrats are historically the tax and spend party. That is prosperity. It has been turned into a negative assessment by the right radicals, To the extent that that the working middle class repeats it with enthusiasm. Infrastructure , healthcare, child care et al social and humanitarian needs. It is stopped by the radical right because they need to see people suffer in order to feel their power and worth.

    The only way to make America great again is to regulate money to be money and stay in the economy. Out law dynasty trusts and any other money stagnating instrument. Money has to flow to create an economy.

    Here’s the guy I blame for the downward US economic collapse .

    “”...Phil Gramm Destroyed Our Economy

    JAMES JOYNER · SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2009 · 30 COMMENTS

    I’ve always liked Phil Gramm. He’s a charming, self-effacing fellow and his unfortunately named “Dicky Flatt Test” always struck me as the right approach to federal spending. I was, therefore, chagrined to learn, via Steve Benen, that Gramm almost singlehandedly destroyed our economic system.

    Time magazine, highlighting some of those most responsible for the economic crisis, recently singled out former Sen. Phil Gramm (R-Texas), and for good reason. Few deserve as much blame as the former chairman of the Senate Banking Committee.

    Gramm “played a leading role in writing and pushing through Congress the 1999 repeal of the Depression-era Glass-Steagall Act, which separated commercial banks from Wall Street,” Time explained. “He also inserted a key provision into the 2000 Commodity Futures Modernization Act that exempted over-the-counter derivatives like credit-default swaps from regulation by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. Credit-default swaps took down AIG, which has cost the U.S. $150 billion thus far.”

    What’s particularly interesting is that Bill........

    ECONOMICS MACROECONOMICS

    Financialization

    REVIEWED BY WILL KENTON

    Updated Apr 19, 2018

    What is Financialization

    “Financialization refers to the increase in size and importance of a country’s financial sector relative to its overall economy. Financialization has occurred as countries have shifted away from industrial capitalism. This impacts both the macroeconomy and the microeconomy by changing how financial markets are structured and operated and by influencing corporate behavior and economic policy.”

    Huge personal and business fortunes make money faster, easier and cheaper discarding goods and services in favor of unregulated financial trades.

    More and more poor people at more and more places. Notice that the Liberty poem is an invitation with no promise of help.

    Joe on the right. Bernie on the left. Most all of the candidates have something from Bernie in their campaign. As the candidates are culled they more than likely will support Bernie. After the debates. Bernie 55% , Joe 40% and 5 toss ups .
