AS ELECTION DAY APPROACHES TV VIEWERS ARE ASSAULTED DAILY BY PARTISAN POLITICAL ADS. ONE OF THEM FEATURES AN ELDERLY GENTLEMAN CLAIMING HE GREW UP IN A SOCIALIST COUNTRY WHERE EVERYONE GREW POORER BECAUSE THEY WERE DE-INCENTIVIZED BY GOVERNMENT HANDOUTS. SO (NEVER MIND THAT THERE ARE ABOUT 5 JOB SEEKERS FOR EVERY AVAILABLE JOB IN THE U.S.) HE ADVOCATES VOTING FOR THE PARTY THAT PROMISES TO CUT SOCIAL SECURITY (NEVER MIND THAT IT IS PREPAID BY PAYROLL TAXES), FOOD STAMPS (LET THEM STARVE), AND MEDICARE (LET THEM SUFFER). YET BOTH PARTIES, ONCE ELECTED TO HIGH OFFICE (AND LOOKING FOR CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS), PASS LAWS GIVING AWAY OBSCENE AMOUNTS OF TAXPAYER MONEY TO THE GIANT CORPORATIONS (e.g. WALMART) AND THE FILTHY RICH (e.g. GEORGE W BUSH) DE-INCENTIVIZING THEM FROM EVER DOING ANYTHING BENEFITING THE LOWLY TAXPAYER.
