Sometimes it can be so obvious where a problem comes from, but very hard to change it.
The anti-government, pro-corporate-rule Reagan Revolution screwed a lot of things up for regular people and for the country.
Some of this disaster we saw happening at the time and some of it has taken 30 years to become clear.
But for all the damage done these “conservative” policies greatly enriched a few entrenched interests, who use their wealth and power
to keep things the way they are.
And the rest of us, hit so hard by the changes, don’t have the resources to fight the wealth and power.
. . .
Look at the influence of these entrenched interests on our current deficits, for example. Obviously conservative policies of tax cuts and military spending increases caused the massive deficits.
But entrenched interests use their wealth and power to keep us from making needed changes.
The facts are here, plain as the noses on our faces.
The ability to fight it eludes us.
Will we step up and do something to reverse the disaster caused by the Reagan Revolution or not
