What Pope Francis was talking about, American style: #Staffergate

I've long said that the only real difference between a libertarian and a crony capitalist is a bank account large enough to buy politicians. With the combination of Staffergate and Pope Francis's Apostolic Exhortation, I'm beginning to think that we live under rule of corruption, not rule of law. It's hard to tell the difference between the two- since the very people writing the law are the ones taking the bribes.

This is why the magical overflowing glass of Argentinian's version of the trickle down theory never overflowed and kept growing larger. This is why a rising tide floats some boats and sinks others. This is what is wrong with von Mises' theories about government in general- a free market means that government is for sale to the highest bidder.

This is also why Bill Diss' math classroom was invaded by Planned Parenthood, he was harrassed, and finally last night, was fired. Money wins again- how can a public school math teacher compete with the millions of dollars behind Planned Parenthood?

The system is no longer democracy. Democracy is one man, one vote. Welcome to the corruptocracy, where it is one dollar, one vote.
