DO YOU THINK THE SYSTEM IS RIGGED?

Do you think “The System Is Rigged” ?
I got that feeling. A suspicion; somehow the game is fixed and money is stacked against you. We are not alone, 70% of Americans believe the ” American economy is rigged”( according to a just released poll by Marketplace).

“Asserting that in the abstract, finance “is not intrinsically good or bad,” G… is unwilling to draw the seemingly obvious conclusion that what determines whether its effects are good or bad depends on whether debts are cancelled when they grow beyond much of the population to pay. To have kept Mesopotamia’s personal debts on the books (or more accurately, on the clay tablets) would have reduced debtors to bondage and led to loss of the land rights that gave them their status as citizens.
It is not hard to see the modern day relevance. Keeping bad bank loans on the books in 2008 saved bankers and bondholders from taking a loss, but left austerity in its wake by passing the financial losses onto the economy at large.” Michael Hudson ( https://rwer.wordpress.com/2016/07/15/a-travesty-of-financial-history-which-bank-lobbyists-will-applaud/

…(S)ince about 1965 or so, the rich have bribed politicians to pass laws and regulations to rig the economy in their favor and against the middle and lower classes to get much more income for themselves and less for everyone else. Economic Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz, with many other economists helping him with background studies, has written a book outlining how to repair this rigging of the US economy, to derig it and level the playing field so the economy may once again work for all and not against most and just in favor of a few.

It’s time to rewrite the rules―to curb the runaway flow of wealth to the top one percent, to restore security and opportunity for the middle class, and to foster stronger growth rooted in broadly shared prosperity.
Inequality is a choice.
The United States bills itself as the land of opportunity, a place where anyone can achieve success and a better life through hard work and determination. But the facts tell a different story―the U.S. today lags behind most other developed nations in measures of inequality and economic mobility. For decades, wages have stagnated for the majority of workers while economic gains have disproportionately gone to the top one percent. Education, housing, and health care―essential ingredients for individual success―are growing ever more expensive. Deeply rooted structural discrimination continues to hold down women and people of color, and more than one-fifth of all American children now live in poverty. These trends are on track to become even worse in the future.
Some economists claim that today’s bleak conditions are inevitable consequences of market outcomes, globalization, and technological progress. If we want greater equality, they argue, we have to sacrifice growth. This is simply not true. American inequality is the result of misguided structural rules that actually constrict economic growth. We have stripped away worker protections and family support systems, created a tax system that rewards short-term gains over long-term investment, offered a de facto public safety net to too-big-to-fail financial institutions, and chosen monetary and fiscal policies that promote wealth over full employment.

Polanyi’s contrasting view is that the only way to narrow the gap between rulers and ruled is by deepening and extending political democracy. Polanyi’s views were the exact opposite of his contemporary, Joseph Schumpeter, who famously defined democracy as giving people a choice over which elite group would rule over them. While Polanyi recognized the accuracy of Schumpeter’s description of typical parliamentary democracies, his view was that democracy can be deepened by giving people greater democratic rights at the workplace and in local communities, and they could then transform parliamentary democracies into institutions in which the elected representatives really did what the voters wanted them to do.

I know the feeling. That sneaking suspicion that somehow the game is fixed and the cards are stacked against you. I’m here to say you’re not alone.
Seven in ten Americans believe the American economy is rigged. And they’re right.
The good news? We’re doing everything we can to fix it.

a/k/a JUSTALUCKYFOOL, In my humble opinion:

Trump–“The Path To The Presidency”
An opportunity for a new legacy;

The Five Greatest Presidents Of The United States:
…Washington, …Jefferson,…Lincoln,…Roosevelt,…TRUMP. ?

WHY TRUMP ?, TRUMP PROPOSALS WILL ALL AT THE SAME TIME:
Increase…. Wages,
….. Jobs,
Decrease…. Federal Debt,
… Poverty
… Inequality.

I know the feeling. That sneaking suspicion that somehow the game is fixed and the cards are stacked against you. I’m here to say you’re not alone.

EIGHTY percent of the people desire a change, a revolution.
History has allowed only one candidate to remain to be that leader-

Donald J Trump.

Quote Frederick Soddy (The Role Of Money 1934),
“After the War, a cry went up for scientific men to cooperate with the financial, industrial, and political authorities in solving the social evils that brought
on the War and which have since made Peace nothing but a misnomer. But the strange and unconventional conclusions of the few who had brought to social problems the same searching and original thought that they were accustomed to apply in their own inquiries, frightened, not
the public, but those whose interest in such problems is to keep them reconciled with things as they are. Those who persisted in shedding light on social evils and anomalies were deemed impious, and the conclusions tabooed. But it is the merest folly to suppose that in these days
any sweeping generalization that clarifies existing great issues can be suppressed. Now that there are signs that the Age of Plenty school of monetary reformers is winning, and that the conspiracy of silence on the part of the “respectable” Press has failed, we may assess the cost. Fifteen
years of golden opportunity have been wasted, the time having been devoted instead to the exacerbation of the disease. Policies, which now everyone knows were the exact opposite of those required by the facts, such as economizing, or producing more and consuming less, have worked themselves out to their inevitable results. The public is expected to believe that the misfortunes that beset us are acts of God and that, though we have the science and the necessary equipment and organization to produce wealth in abundance, it is beyond the wit of man to learn how to distribute it. The problem, it is true, is new, and the approach to it obscured, often intentionally, by a mass of half-truths and once-truths. But its solution has not been rendered any nearer or clearer by the puerile effort of the post-War era to suppress free public discussion of the new doctrines, an issue that was fought out and won
in physical science in the time of Galileo.
Wars and Revolutions Result from Wealth. The reader will no doubt be able to supply for himself
many striking confirmations of the theory that wars and revolution result not from poverty and
misery but from the growth of wealth and the futile attempt to resist its distribution.”

Millions now realize;… the economy is rigged, …the justice system is rigged,
…the health care system is rigged, …the employment system is rigged,
all part of an economic system that is really just a rigged political system.
Fortunately, this November voters across America will still have the choice to cast a revolutionary vote to “… We need to commit to improving the lives of all Americans, not just the wealthy and special interests.”
WE NEED TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN
WE CAN, WE MUST DO THIS.

“The Make America Great Again 2016 Platform”

Donald Trump, “Carpe Diem” (“seize the day”)
““We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity,…”

My PLEDGE to you,
…..establish Justice…
FOR ALL.
…..insure domestic Tranquility…
FOR ALL,
…..provide for the common defense…
Foreign, or Domestic,
…..promote the general Welfare
Health and Education,
….secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity,…”
Wealth as an entitlement for rich as well as an entitlement for a
standard of living FOR ALL.

A simple change in direction of doing something for the common bettering of all the people.

Now we need your PLEDGE to us.
This change in direction can not be done without your vote.
The U S Constitution has structured this union so that the Chief Executive Officer (The President) is responsible to its Board of Directors (The Congress).
Your vote will be that Pledge!
When you enter that election booth take one minute to tell yourself,
“This is the moment of truth. I have been pounded and battered by this
rigged system; ‘enough is enough’. I have the power to change this system NOW !
I can and I shall !”

YES, THE SYSTEM IS RIGGED,
I’m here and we’re a ‘party’ to it.
My PLEDGE to your party is your biggest advantage,
your PLEDGE to make it happen will be my duty, my obligation.
I have not chosen either politics or this crusade ..”IT has been thrown upon me !”
Fate and Circumstance created this awesome role.

The pressure is now on you.

The greatest challenge to over come will be slung at you in a million ways, with millions of cries, “It can’t be done.”,“You will put us in unbearable debt.” “We will no longer be able to sustain our sovereignty.”
Hundreds of millions will be spent to keep the system rigged.

WE NEED TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
THERE IS A WAY .
While adhering to the basic principle-“The way and means for a ‘capitalistic sovereignty’
is to RAISE TAXES should they wish to increase spending.”
Yet no one explains that there are “other ways” of taxation, other than personal income.
There are methods available,fair and such a magnitude that it could fund this great union
to become…“…a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity,…”

Trump–“The Path To The Presidency”
An opportunity for a new legacy.
