There is NO reason that he is being permitted to be on the Democratic debate stage, other than he has PAID for it.
And, I do agree about Little Mike’s motivation – he is attempting to wrest the reins of the party from the hands of the Seriously Socialist.
As opposed to the Socialist-Lite crowd that has held it in the last 50 or so years.
Now, the Socialist-Lite crowd should not be confused from those Socialists that actually want a revolution. The Socialist-Lite (SL, for short) only preach socialism up to a point. That would be the point at which the Taken-by-Force money passes through their hands – with a hefty surcharge being exacted for the process.
AOC and the other kinda-sorta Serious Socialists do want a revolution. Cue the old Beatles song.
But, in their minds, the revolution will end up with THEM in charge.
Foolish children. They don’t realize that the Original Revolutionaries (ORs) always get tossed out by the ruthless people who follow them. We call them the Kleptocrats, as their only passion is to acquire money – LOTS of money. See list below for a few:
- Fidel Castro – he was a piker – ONLY $900 million
- Hugo Chavez – $1 billion
- Vladmir Putin – $70 billion
- Michael Bloomberg – $56 billion
- Yassar Arafat – at his death, more than $1 billion
- Xi Jinping – personally, not known – his siblings have over $1 billion
- Justin Trudeau – $10 million
- Joe Biden – $1.5 billion. However, as VP, he steered a whole lot in the direction of his family members – see Profiles in Corruption, if you want an overview of just how that is done.
- AOC – although she is just a newbie to the politics game, she’s apparently on track for greater wealth – $100,000, so far
- The Clinton Clan – more than $300 million, so far.
- The Obama Family – lowest estimate, $40 million.
- The Pelosi Family – $140 million.
Hmmm. Maybe we SHOULD turn socialist – it seems that it pays off, quite well.
