Citizens Are The Soylent Green of Today’s Politics – Monty Pelerin’s World : Monty Pelerin’s World. (FULL ARTICLE)

Neither American political party is worth supporting. Each has interests inconsistent with those of the American public. The claimed political differences are mostly cosmetic, designed for marketing advantage. Both parties act in their self interest which does not coincide with that of the citizens or the well-being of the country.

Each party behaves like a self-serving criminal gang. The quaint concept of serving the public exists no longer. Routinely they exempt themselves  from the rules and laws they impose on the rest of the country. Their policies enrich the political class while the rest of the country becomes poorer.

Mark Twain described Congress as our ”distinctly native American criminal class.”Albert J. Nock went further, generalizing Twain’s somewhat parochial observation:
