An Economy Destroyed - It always occurs when an oligarchy seizes control of a government

An Economy Destroyed
The Enemy Is Washington

By Paul Craig Roberts

The American people and their wants and needs are not represented in Washington. Washington serves powerful interest groups, such as the military/security complex, Wall Street and the banksters, agribusiness, the oil companies, the insurance companies, pharmaceuticals, and the mining and timber industries. Washington endows these interests with excess profits by committing war crimes and terrorizing foreign populations with bombs, drones, and invasions, by deregulating the financial sector and bailing it out of its greed-driven mistakes after it has stolen Americans pensions, homes, and jobs, by refusing to protect the land, air, water, oceans and wildlife from polluters and despoilers, and by constructing a health care system with the highest costs and highest profits in the world.

.................

This is economic destruction. It always occurs when an oligarchy seizes control of a government. The short-run profits of the powerful are maximized at the expense of the viability of the economy.

4. Paul Craig Roberts lay out the ubiquitous corruption of our elected officials with
clarity, precision, aplomb, and savoir faire. :patriot:

7. And from a probable life-long conservative who realizes the Republican Party has morphed into
a party of destruction and depravity hell-bent on destroying almost everything which has any semblance of being in the public interest or for the general welfare of the people in this Republic. :patriot:

We are being fed a tableau, while the real strings are being pulled behind the scenes.
