Who really thinks this election is about small government? That anonymous donors and highly public fund raising organizations are teamed to spend millions to reduce the size of government? That private individuals are spending small fortunes to win office to reduce taxes and budgets? Who really believes the mantra of deficit reduction rings true? That austerity will bring prosperity?
How much effect, if elected, will those in the new class, have on the budget? Answer: none. The pressure from the invisible funding sources to whom they are tethered will cause them to do the bidding of the same corporate interests who formerly funded their opponents.
It’s sad to watch the American people select sound bites over common sense.
