On Public Finance, February 2017

The only reason publicly financed health care and college tuition is even up for debate is because they are brought up. Sanders and Cruz illuminated how a few complex words can hide true intent during their debate over the Affordable Care Act. Cruz would use his fancy lawyer talk and Bernie would interpret for us commoners. Really frightening stuff, that most laws are written in this language with what I can only assume is selfish intent. People, it seems, are innately selfish. The idea that I have to pay for someone else to go to school bothers a lot of people. However, with that same breath we can have the biggest most unnecessary military budget on the planet where we pay for expensive technologies and single weapons that cost more than the man firing it’s annual salary. And don’t get me started on how welfare is figuratively and almost quite literally a drop in the ocean of America’s coffers. It’s easier to strip one of these cut and dry budgets than go into all the intricacies of military funding. Government propaganda of the 40s through the 60s should not still be influential today. If Americans understood what communism and socialism actually entails, if Americans would stop chasing an arguably statistically impossible pipedream and brilliant corporatist tactic of an American Dream, we might just be ok.

Trump Card

The powers that be, the money that runs America, and the establishment media are afraid of Donald Trump. They will do everything in their power to stop him from becoming the Republican nominee. He doesn’t rely on their money since he’s rich, and therefore is not bought. They do not have power over him like every other candidate before him. The question now is how much power do they really have? Will they pay hackers to fix the vote counts? Will they slander him (further) in the media? Will they resort to assassination? If Clinton is the Democratic nominee, I believe they will give up on Trump and push with everything they’ve got to make her the president. She is owned by the banking and pharmaceutical industries and they will control her like they control a Republican. If Bernie Sanders is at the top of the Democratic ticket, they will stand behind Trump because they don’t want chaos in their party, which is what surely will follow with no presidential candidate to control. The nation may fall back into the hands of the people. If voters become disillusioned by the Republican party, all that’s left is to become a Democrat, and the wealthy elite surely do not want that.
