Although I have Alluded to This Before in Other Posts, its Continuing Influence on a Certain Segment of the ELECTORATE IS UNSETTLING, and may be a LEGITIMATE INFLUENCE ON THE OUTCOMES OF SOME IMPORTANT POLITICAL RACES.
IT IS THIS: THAT CERTAIN CANDIDATES AND POLITICIANS OF WEALTH ARE GIVEN FREE PASSES BY A PERCENTAGE OF VOTERS, FROM CRITICISM ON NUMEROUS ISSUES, BECAUSE THEIR AFFLUENCE IS CONSIDERED THE ONLY THING OF REAL IMPORTANCE, AND THE HOW AND WHY SUCH ECONOMIC PROSPERITY WAS ATTAINED, AND RETAINED, IS OF LITTLE CONSEQUENCE.
However, What is Really Hard to Understand, is that This Attitude Does not Seem to Extend to AFFLUENT POLITICIANS OR ELECTED OFFICIALS WHO ARE MORE SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS TO THE INADEQUACIES OF ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES AND SAFETY NETS, AND THE INABILITY OF PARTICULAR GROUPS TO ACCESS FINANCIAL AID AND SUPPORT THROUGH THE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SECTORS.
IT IS INCREDIBLE, BUT THIS GROUP OF POLITICAL LEADERS IS OFTEN ATTACKED FOR EVEN SUGGESTING THAT LOWER INCOME INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES BE GIVEN, AT LEAST, A MINIMAL CHANCE FOR GROWTH AND PROSPERITY, WHILE AT THE SAME TIME BEING CHASTISED FOR NOT BAILING OUT BAD INVESTMENTS AND FAILED FINANCIAL DEALS BY INVESTORS AND POLITICIANS WHO ARE PRAISED FOR THEIR "ECONOMIC WISDOM."
INCREDIBLY, IT IS SOME OF THE VERY VOTERS WHO MUST FOOT THE BILL FOR GOVERNMENT RESCUE, WHO CONTINUE TO SING THE PRAISES OF THOSE POLITICIANS WHO "HAVE ACHIEVED THE AMERICAN DREAM," FORGETTING WHAT IT IS COSTING TO KEEP THAT DREAM ALIVE.
