    ...and its opposite, what feels good for the right is demonstrably bad for the nation.

    And its bipartisan sum, what feels good for Congress is demonstrably bad for the nation.

    The economy was broken during the 1930 crash and the root cause was immediately addressed. Everything was going swimmingly well until Reaganomics. Unfortuntely, nothing trickled down. It was the beginning of the wealth gap that has kept on getting bigger year after year. This is undisputed fact. The economy was not broken until Reagan fiddled with it (and since then, there has been more fiddling).

    Bernie wants to take the US back to times of prosperity for Americans. Today's GOP* is still on it's knees catering to Wall Street and big banks. They do not give one flying **** about you. Shame that you cannot see that.


    * I am speaking about party lines. I am fully aware than many Democrats cater to WS and big banks.
    There is substantial evidence that FDR's policies prolonged the great depression, read some Hayek.

    Not really. That's essentially how it has always worked. Money worked hand in hand with talent, vision, and being the right person for the moment's attitude.

    Keep in mind also that a decade ago we developed a mechanism to increase the likelihood of small donations to Presidential candidates. We didn't change the formula regarding big donors (perhaps to some extent accelerated it), but we did increase the participation and money flow for those with less means. It also helped tip the balance for one candidate over the other in a Party's primary while being a more modest presence in the general election (given the number of other influences in the mix).
