    Yeah, I don't tend to be much into worshipping politicians and TR, while a brave man set some precedents that continue to screw this country up to this day-like causing the election of the horrid Woodrow Wilson. But as presidents go he was one of the better ones. Any man who likes to hunt I can appreciate

    The Unions consist of only 1 out of 8 workers, enough to do some damage, and have enough purchasing power to rent a congressman or 2.
    The Elite Corporate are a lot smaller number, but have tons of money and loads of power, and find it easy to buy a congressman or 2.
    The Welfare class, very little money, no power except their votes, and they don't vote in an organized manner.

    So, IMO, the elite corporate types on Wall Street who think what they do is "good" for America.
    But the OP left out a 4th category, the stupid who vote according to the voices in their heads, voices that were put there by political pundits...

    Of all those, corporate powers are the worst because they are sucking up all the money into their coffers, thus reducing the spending power of the lower classes; and then they throw their weight around with our government representatives too.

    Are you speaking in general or are you implying that corporations never reinvest their profits into expanding businesses which thus translates into expanded hiring and more consumer choice? Just wondering.

    If supply is not balanced with demand, than it does no good.
