Very interesting. I've always said both major parties owe their hearts and souls to corporations, wall street firms, lobbyist, special interests, mega individual money donors etc. It seems you agree with that.
By the way, I've always preferred RC Cola until it became unavailable. RC Cola and a Moonppie.
I think you're correct in that as I put it, the rhetoric is completely opposite most of the time between the two major parties. But both govern basically the same. At times one or the other throws a tid bit to the people. I've never got upset or riled by whoever won an election. You're just getting a Coke or a Pepsi.
I've always be amazed at the amount of people who think there's really a huge difference between the two major parties. But I suppose that's because they became a fan of the rhetoric and failed to watch how each governs. Each governs to please their donors as that is where they get their tens and hundreds of millions of dollars to run their campaigns and organizations. They're not about to bite the hand that feeds them. If either talks about about these moneyed elites, it's done with a wink and a nudge. Don't worry, I'm going to talk about about you, but I'll take care of all your wants. You can bet on that. Both use hot button issues which effect very little of us as a whole to get folks riled up and to prove the huge difference, then turn to governing basically the same as the other.
