A Parable

Once upon a time, the people in a town decided to safeguard their valuables. They constructed a huge storehouse and put a trustworthy person in change of it. When people had business, they would ask their trustee and he would make appropriate withdrawals and dispensed the wealth back to them.

This system went on for several years without a hitch.

Big money and big politics

Bill Moyers has really done a good job letting everyone have insight to what really is going on in Washington D.C. With more and more lobbyists moving right next to capital hill.

Even Peter Schiff keeps telling everyone how much money he needs to run. It will take millions just so he can vote for the American people.
