America's Number One Problem Is Never Talked About

On any political talk shows. They always complain about politics and parties but never talk about the billionaires influence.

What people want and need matters little.

The billionaires get paid first in ALL legislation.

It's the money stupid.

2. The political talk shows work for corporations

owned by these billionaires. That is why they never talk about billionaire influence in politics. The MSM is corporate media controlled by billionaires.

What billionaires are funding their campaigns over and over and over. Run ads. Make low information rural voters understand they are voting wrong.

11. "On any political talk shows. "

 

Talk show hosts, for the most part, are a part of the investor class and work for some of the most wealthy among us.

For profit news is one of our biggest problems. I have zero answers in this area. It's extremely important they stay independent but that doesn't seem possible. They will always be dependent to some force.

13. #1 problem, fund raising in politics.

Politicians are bought and paid for by the highest bidder now. As long as that exists, we have a huge problem.
