Sometimes politics scares me. Whenever we raise the good of small groups above the greater good of all people, we buy and sell opportunity. And we steal opportunity from others to pay for what we give to the small groups.
That is what lobbyists do. They buy and sell influence.
But, during an era when American politicians have sacrificed the wealth of Americans, so they can pull people out of poverty world-wide, it is wrong for politicians to demand more money.
That is my version.
Do you agree?
