Democracy only works when there are enough thoughtful people to outvote the thoughtless. And even then not always.

Are you in debt? You are a bad person. Politicians in both parties despise you and would prefer that you be crushed under the weight of your debt.

The President of the United States threatened Social Security beneficiaries, the old, the weak and the disabled, saying that if Congress can’t manage to fix the debt ceiling, he won’t promise to pay them, and veterans, among others. We know he doesn’t see the difference between the government of a Sovereign Nation in control of its own currency, and a family living on $40,000 in a rented apartment, worrying about bills. That ignorant Republican talking point is now being wielded as a threat to the old and the disabled, and to veterans, among others.
