So what do you get when you put the CEO of Halliburton and the CEO of Goldman Sachs in charge of the country with the biggest access to debt?

You get a kleptocracy the likes never before seen by man.

You get trillions and trillions stolen from the people.

You get Halliburton and Goldman Sachs as the two biggest beneficiaries.

And you get a world ravaged by economic misery and unending warfare.

Thank you, voters of America, for going along with the plan.

A kleptocracy is a term applied to a government that extends the personal wealth and political power of government officials and the ruling class (collectively, kleptocrats) at the expense of the population.

A kleptocratic government often goes beyond mere cronyism and nepotism, or awarding the prime contracts and civil service posts to relatives or personal friends rather than the most competent applicants.

They also create projects and programs at a policy level which serve the primary purpose of funneling money out of the treasury and into the pockets of the executive with little if any regard for the logic, viability or necessity of those projects.

The People are fighting back in the only way they can:

by not paying their bills.

This is exactly the road that France took to its Revolution.

All because people thought two fags marrying each other in Vermont was more important than how a future president might run the economy. People though it was more important for them to be able to decide whether some 16 year old slut can get an abortion is more important than how a future congressman might try to make sure the regulators do their jobs properly.
Thanks to all those single-issue voters on both sides. You dug your own grave.
