11. Yes, our sickening plutocracy.

I think they look at taking over our government as a dirty job, but something that must be done and it's mandated by their leader billionaires.

I remember way back - probably in the 70s - when Heritage came about. We didn't pay them much mind and they operated mostly in secret. However, as with most organizations, leaks started coming out that revealed they were feeding news organizations with talking points AND to the White House and Congress - in other words, minders of our government even back then. But , we never heard Heritage's or AEI's - or Rupert Murdoch's - names mentioned.

I've always viewed the wealthy as existing in a universe apart from us, and it's global in nature. I don't thing many of them are really very nationalistic at heart since their well-being is tied more to a web of global financial and social interests, however they'll all toot a patriotic horn if it fits their business interests.
