According to my GF, who has a collie degree, (PhD in American History) That is pretty much the truth of the founding of this country. Wealthy white men designing a system of government that favored wealthy white men staying wealthy, getting wealthier, being wealthiest. It wasn't until 1810-1840 that there was even a symbolic gesture of democratizion when states dropped their land owning requirements for the right (of white men) to vote.



Everyone else can get back to work bc there's nothing to worry your pretty little, or nappy little, heads about-the great white fathers will take care of everything.

Notice how long was required for change to finally happen. Women finally got the 19th Amendment (the vote) in 1920. Simultaneously, America started becoming a wealthiest nation as unions finally achieved power.

Number that measures this is a Gini coefficient. Whereas the entire industrial world since WWII has seen this number remains in the twenties or mid thirties, the US income inequality has increased to be a highest number: low to mid-forties. Even Canada has not suffered this inequality.

Curiously, a Gini coefficient for France dropped significantly. Which explains why France rose to be one of the world's most productive nations. And one year topped a list of world's most productive nations.

We only got to vote for senators in 1913.
When they were designing the government Ben Franklin wanted the politicians in Washington to be unpaid. Do it as a public service. That would assure only rich men would be running the show.

Liberal and conservative means decisions immediately based in emotional attachments.

Moderates first learn facts before making a conclusion. Moderates are not driven by rhetoric. Moderates are informed. Conclusions come later.

Both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump are similar. Both are only driven by entrenched political biases. (In Donald's case, exaggerated by his mental abilities - a 30 second attention span.)
