I agree, out of control

I agree, out of control spending on bailing out the entitled criminal classes who are profiting at record levels from running our banks, our energy corporations, our indentured servitude-student loan programs. Their tax-deduction entitlements create a trickle-up economy, taking from the working poor to fund the already entitled. The uber-wealthy can afford accountants to arrange that they pay little or no income tax, their corporations as "people" write our laws and buy our elections. Our young people are sent to die not for "freedom" but to keep the global elite privileged status quo "stable & secure." That elite being American, Saudi Arabian, EU or Chinese. Our military has become the most globally expendable, with the least return to the nation that funds it. We secure "business-as-usual" undemocratic nations such as China, Pakistan and Russia to keep our economic bought and paid for "system" in the hands of an oligarchy. Just keep us disunited, attacking and blaming the vulnerable and the funders of the Heritage Foundation can keep laughing all the way to the bank. Is it right that the corporations have more power in DC and only pay 1.2% of GDP and individuals are ignored and pay 7.3%? The REAL people are being shafted and distracted by entitlements as a "poor person" issue. http://www.cbo.gov/sites/default/files/cbofiles/new/budgetinfographic.png
