Response to Plucketeer (Reply #12)

14. I find it disturbing that anyone would claim to "own" the country.

We ARE the country. This nation is people, as in "We The People." The over-emphasis on property (or dirt) is obscenely materialistic, imho. Yet the GOP cannot seem to think in any other way.

In fact, it seems to betray a sociopathic inclination. When a politician clearly focuses on the "health" of a fund or account, rather than on the health of human beings facilitated by such a fund, and overtly sacrifices the latter for the sake of the former, it's a clear lack of focus on the most fundamental reasons for such a fund in the first place. Yet this misplaced focus is common in the reich wing.
