They’re All the Same

Trump endorses Clinton

Trump endorsing Hillary Clinton in her run for Senate.

You might say that their first loyalty is to the 1%, and that loyalty “Trumps” (wink) any other loyalties that they may have to party, ideology, nation, faith, morals, allies, really anything.

In other words, the 1% is the 1%.

There is the “Democratic” 1% and the “Republican” 1%.

There is the “liberal” 1% and the “conservative” 1%.

But at the end of the day, they’re all just the 1%, and I assume that they are all holding hands with each other, going to same conferences, endorsing each other, plotting together, partying with one another, marrying each other, etc.

Marx would say that these people have one loyalty and one loyalty only: they are loyal to their class interests, and everything else be damned. Marx would be right. People don’t read him enough.

    Why’d you leave Melania out of the picture?

    There is no such thing as Democratic 1% and the Republican 1%, liberal 1% and the conservative 1%…the 1% is the 1%, they are also all the same, they never change.

    I don’t think Trump is a real conservative. I think he just changes his thinking every few years to fit whatever that’s good for business. Basically, he’s just a businessman, and what’s good for that, is good for him.

    I don’t know. Maybe deep down he has some concern for free trade etc.. However, his long political history has been very weak minded and shallow.
