Response to Attorney in Texas (Original post)

Sun Nov 22, 2015, 07:28 PM

13. Excellent OP. Absolutely true.

 

The Reagan Administration -- the individuals who ran this country during Reagan's eight years -- opened the door to a massive, landscape-changing, culture-transforming, deregulation of business, put an end to Johnson's War on Poverty, and set in motion the gradual undoing of the American middle class that was itself an FDR achievement.

By the time Clinton was elected, the presidency was already less powerful than the Reagan/Bush-enabled oligarchy.

Undoing what the Reagan Administration set in motion is the gargantuan task that awaits President Sanders.

If we don't get President Sanders, the reversal will have to wait while the oligarchy cements its power over the world.

An important election indeed.
