When President Trump was campaigning he promised to, “Drain the swamp.” What he didn’t say, and what the American People should have already known, is that he planned to back fill it with corporate elite. Which is to say, taking one swamp and swapping it with another.
Our government is the shield between corporations and the Citizens. At best, it should be an uneasy truce. Now the fox is in the hen house, with the rooster being paid to look the other way. Whenever self-interested government officials and self-interested corporations get together, American Citizens are the ones that pay the price. Our history is full of examples.
