Ratigan nails the Republican and Democratic factions of the one-party Kleptocracy known as Wall Street. If you still believe in left-right puppet show, get to the nearest mirror and shout “KNAVE!” until the mythical recovery arrives.
The American government — which we once called our government — has been taken over by Wall Street, the mega-corporations and the super-rich. They are the ones who decide our fate. It is this group of powerful elites, the people President Franklin D. Roosevelt called “economic royalists,” who choose our elected officials — indeed, our very form of government. Both Democrats and Republicans dance to the tune of their corporate masters. In America, corporations do not control the government. In America, corporations are the government.
