The elites of this country are clueless. I just saw Romney raging against the monster he helped create. He loved when Franken-Trump was trotted out to endorse his candidacy, but now expresses the elite’s horror at their creation. What they refuse to hear is the economic message. He is the only Republican that claims he will not cut Social Security and Medicare. He is the only one talking about American jobs for American people, or how the pharmaceutical industry is robbing Medicare. His Republican populism appears to go against the interest of the wealthy, profit above all. Now Mr. Bain Capital, who facilitated the dismantling of our industrial base, is boggled by his popularity. Bernie and Trump are the left and right wing of a populist movement. The media, a propaganda wing of the corporate state, are ignoring Bernie and focusing on Trump’s gross racial nationalism. The love of money has blinded the wealthy. They have hollowed out the middle of America. Shipped our industrial base to Mexico and beyond, and are in the process of cannibalizing and profiting off what’s left of government. While claiming their radical transformation of America is “conservative.” Corporations are people, psychopathic people destroying America.
