    All of this hand wringing is predicated upon the notion that demos is unable to think autonomously unless someone puts the ideas in his head first. Thus what is democracy?

    Oh tyrannical persuasion, may you only be applied by those espousing the correct view, according to the sensibilities of the enlightened and the elect.

    For the same reason they so vehemently oppose purging the voting roles of Ineligible voters, and requiring voters to prove who they are before they vote.

    It places their party on a level playing field where they simply can't win on their own merits.

    Good article and makes a point I've been making for a while. It's not the successful business owner that deserves the ire of the other 99%, it's the jackass at Goldman Sachs/Chase/etc. who takes his personal, gold-plated cream skimmer to the top of the economy. Produces nothing. Just takes. And takes gargantuan sums.

    Yep. Been trying to say the same thing. We print more money, so our money is worth less and the only ones who benefit are the Wall-Street a-holes as seen in Wolf of Wall Street.
