Individual civilians and their freedom and liberties are no longer at the top of the pyramid, having been replaced by a self serving political class using government functions and institutions to enlarge, entrench, and enrich itself.
Earmark abuse, favorable campaign finance laws, excessive political function benefits, bonuses and perks (through corporate contributions), bailing out banks, confiscating large amounts of public wealth and income via taxes and inflation, and a general low priority for the needs and desires of a country’s civilians.
An idea who’s time has come. It’s So Hip to Be Square. Here, There and Everywhere!
