Wall Street on Parade
“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.” – Frédéric Bastiat, French Economist
The real breaking news headline out of the Iowa Caucuses that had to be doled out over multiple days in measured bites of data is that Senator Bernie Sanders, who has promised to stop Wall Street’s plunder of the nation’s wealth, is leading the popular vote in the state.
Despite mainstream media and cable news’ efforts to spin the long-delayed Iowa vote data as a big win for 38-year old Pete Buttigieg, whose name most Americans can’t spell or pronounce, the real too hot to handle news is that folks in the Heartland of America have rejected the centrist-establishment-Wall Street agenda of former Vice President Joe Biden and have warmly embraced Senator Bernie Sanders’ promised political revolution. Biden currently ranks a distant fourth in the vote tallies with 71.44 percent of the vote reported.
