Thom Hartman calls it the plutocrats, the suckers, and the shills. Its the job of the right wing shills (like pastors) to get the suckers to believe that what the plutocrats want is in their best interests.... Right now Trump is the biggest shill of them all. He said "cut taxes". He said "increase military spending". You ever notice that they never say both those things in the same sentence. Maybe the dumb people would figure out there is a problem if they ever say them both together.
They say that after studyin the brains of democrats and republicans with MRI and other such tools that there is a difference in brain structure that you can see. Most democrats have a certain kind of brain structure. Most republicans have a certain kind of brain structure that is not the same as democrats. I wish I could see those brain scans, but they dont show up very well on the radio.
