It says that we are fascists.
Habeas corpus has been eroded, our communications are monitored. a president exists who believes that he is above the Constitution and constitutional laws, and individuals have become irrelevant and stripped of the protections of the Bill of Rights.
The descendants of the Robber Barons are so shortsighted that they cannot understand that if you weaken the individual citizen, you weaken the family, you weaken America,; you weaken America, you place the American corporations and foreign corporations in jeopardy everywhere in the world. You weaken world capitalism. Who defends capitalism in the world if America is weak? I mean the capitalism that has never really existed, the free market kind where government is the referee, not the giver of corporate welfare. If I had the choice of giving economic incentives and loans (corporate welfare) to corporations or to indigent individuals, I would choose the latter. It would cost less.
F.D.R. didn't just save the poor Americans, he saved capitalism from its excesses. If you want to immunize a society from socialism, you preserve individual rights. Remember corporations thrived in Nazi Germany.
Besides you, I, or someone will race to be the first to hack it.
