    I saw this coming from a mile away—-way back during Bush’s first term. NOBODY could have screwed up our country and economy this bad by messing up. You could see the purpose behind this. Strip the little guy of his money and everything else, then even he will be an ally of big business and the extractive industries—if only for survival. People need to be smart and not give in to these scare tactics. Look, they do it all the time with the ESA and other policies…..if you don’t think the trickle down theory has the same type of goals, think again!
