Here in my home state of Kentucky I have long watched in amazement as the voters of this state continually vote against their own interests. With the coronation tommorrow of "tea-party" candidate Rand Paul in the Republican primary, it only cements this point. You see, Paul and his tea-party backers want to "starve the beast" and slash the federal budget down to nothing. They want to do this because the Republicans here have convinced them that the very rich should not have to pay their taxes. The only problem with this approach is that many Kentuckians, including the "tea-baggers" are reaping handsome rewards from federal grants for needed programs.
In what has become a recurrent theme the big banking industry is setting it's site on fleecing yet another group of Americans. As if crashing our economy and being bailed out by the taxpayers for their own greed were not bad enough, banking institutions have set their sites on the fleecing of American students, and are attempting to keep them in recurrent debt for the rest of their natural lives, much less their careers. Well, now it is time to fight back against these crooks who care little for their country and the people within as long as the bottom line is preserved.
