12. the destruction of democracy in favor of oligarchy ...

It's not just Medicare, Social Security, and SNAP. It's everything that government does that impedes the growth of oligarchs. That top 1/10th of 1% want more power and money, while getting everyone else to pay for the roads, bridges, airports, police, firefighters, courts, etc., they need in order to amass more wealth.

The filthy rich want everyone else to pay the costs of them getting richer. They do not want any pesky regulations getting in their way of making more profit.

Tell your neighbors. Educate the electorate.
