America is NOT broke
by Michael Moore (has he been reading


Contrary to what those in power would like you to believe so that you'll give up your pension,
cut your wages, and settle for the life your great-grandparents had, America is not broke.
Not by a long shot.

The country is awash in wealth and cash. It's just that it's not in your hands. It has been transferred,
in the greatest heist in history, from the workers and consumers to the banks and the portfolios of the uber-rich.
Today just 400 Americans have the same wealth as half of all Americans combined.
Let me say that again. 400 obscenely rich people, most of whom benefited in some way from the
multi-trillion dollar taxpayer "bailout" of 2008, now have as much loot, stock and property as the
assets of 155 million Americans combined. If you can't bring yourself to call that a financial coup d'état,
then you are simply not being honest about what you know in your heart to be true.

The nation is not broke, my friends. Wisconsin is not broke. It's part of the Big Lie.
 The truth is, there's lots of money to go around. LOTS. It's just that those in charge have diverted
that wealth into a deep well that sits on their well-guarded estates. They know they have committed
crimes to make this happen and they know that someday you may want to see some of that money
that used to be yours. So they have bought and paid for hundreds of politicians across the country
to do their bidding for them. But just in case that doesn't work, they've got their gated communities,
and the luxury jet is always fully fueled, the engines running, waiting for that day they hope never comes.

I've been saying it for years but Michael is the first person I've seen to agree with me.

Those trillions didn't "evaporate" they were STOLEN by the super-rich.
and then Obama gave them anothet trillion dollar bonus on top of the trillions
they stole because he wants to get re-elected and he's OK with the facts that
the poor and middle class have to suffer for it.

...and my blood boils when Democrats say, "The Clintons will do anything for more power."

If you have a brain you'll remember we did GREAT when Clinton ran the country
(Tripled the stock market, 22M new jobs and no soldiers sent home in body bags)
but Democrats decided they wanted ANYTHING ELSE besides a repeat of the nineties.
