The essentially complicit nature of the two ruling political parties was in this way covered up for decades, as the crimes of the Democrats were greedily consumed as entertainment by the Limbaugh crowd while the crimes of the Bushies became hot-selling t-shirts and bumper stickers for the Air America listenership. The abiding mutual hatred the red/blue groups shared consistently prevented any kind of collective realization about the structure of the overall scheme.
Billions have been siphoned off from the working and middle class to parasitical elites. Both parties aided and abetted the process. Republican vs. Democrat squabblings are a sideshow diversion that deflects attention from the ongoing thefts.
