Billy Sol Estes, a crook from long ago was once asked by a federal crime commission why he didn't steal the huge amount of investment money once and get away free. Estes said, "You can shear a sheep twice a year, but you can only slaughter it once." The very wealthy and the very powerful and their toadie politicians have been shearing the People for decades now. Money and power are very much concentrated among a small percentage of people. There ain't too much more to shear. Corpgov is greedy. They cannot stop themselves. They are going to bankrupt the country. Living in America is going to become very unfun for most people. A major bank or two will fail and the fit will start to hit the shan.
In short, Americans have the power to stop the train wreck from becoming worse. We won't. We will wait until it is unavoidable. Then things will change.
