16. The core essence of that statement is the objective of dividing our nation.

Division among the populace is the core objective of the ultra wealthy so they can keep us blindly occupied with jobs and consumerism while being fearful of our neighbors. In other words, community is the enemy of our corporate world and the Democratic Party believes in community. Therefore, we are the enemy. When divided, people are easily controlled.

That philosophy is cleverly promoted through right-wing media and think tanks by designating us Democrats as "the other" or "the enemy" for decades on talk radio and Faux News to the point that now, around a third of Americans are thoroughly brainwashed.

They've used every emotional tool in the right-wing fascist playbook to achieve that goal including gun ownership, racial issues, women's rights, hatred of government and taxes and faux patriotism.

I honestly have little long-term hope for our Nation and many others like the UK unless we can drastically reduce asset and income inequality around the globe.

To date, that inequality is only getting worse day by day.

KY rant done for Monday.....
