Elections:  The difference between left wing and right wing

Political nonsense!  This is what Albert Einstein actually said  & I quote: “Private capital tends to become concentrated in few hands, partly because of competition among the capitalists, and partly because technological development and the increasing division of labor encourage the formation of larger units of production at the expense of smaller ones. The result of these developments is an oligarchy of private capital the enormous power of which cannot be effectively checked even by a democratically organized political society. This is true since the members of legislative bodies are selected by political parties, largely financed or otherwise influenced by private capitalists who, for all practical purposes, separate the electorate from the legislature. The consequence is that the representatives of the people do not in fact sufficiently protect the interests of the underprivileged sections of the population. Moreover, under existing conditions, private capitalists inevitably control, directly or indirectly, the main sources of information (press, radio, education). It is thus extremely difficult, and indeed in most cases quite impossible, for the individual citizen to come to objective conclusions and to make intelligent use of his political rights”  – [ Why Socialism?, A. Einstein ] 51″

Sonbeams : “The real reason there is concentration of control is the central banking system that is owned by a few very wealthy families. They buy up all the resources and enslave the people with their counterfeit debt based irredeemable fiat currencies. They buy the politicians and foment war and the welfare state all the better to ensnare the people in their web of debt. Woe betide any nation that tries manage the currency on behalf of their people. They very soon become the target for regime change vide Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. Iran is next. There can only be ONE ruler is their motto.”
strictlygenteel :  “yes but, which cheese to choose? it's a tough one.”
MARTIN : “Socialism is possibly the worst form of government to choose because a big government allows big corporations to have more control of your lives, that why people like Warren Buffet support socialism. Limited government minimizes this risk, as the mega rich can compete competitively in a free market.”
