It costs $2 billion dollars to run for President.
The idea of a government of the people, for the people and by the people is dead. Stone cold and long since in the ground. In December 2010, a Democratic House, a Democratic super majority in the Senate and a Democrat in the White House passed and signed the tax cuts that instill the lowest tax rate for the wealthiest 500 earners in this countries since the 1930s.
To sit here and listen to the rhetoric of the Democrats calling the Republicans the part of the rich and big business is becomming laughable. At least the Republicans don't pretend to be the party of the people or identify with the common man, because there is no way someone who went to the finest private school in Hawaii, Columbia and Harvard Law could identify with a guy who has a high school diploma and a $25/hour job, regardless of his humble roots.
Neither party give's a damn about the people. And we're all far to domesticated to consider putting it all on the line in a revolution. Instead we'll march along like the sheeple that we are as both parties spend our country into the ground.
