On Tuesday night of this week, Rep. Rashia Tlaib (D-Mich.) chimed in on David Hogg’s Twitter timeline.
This member of the so-called Democratic “squad” agreed with Hogg’s straw man post that “for hundreds of years rich people have used racism and xenophobia to convince poor people that rich people are not the problem.”
Tlaib’s posting a bullhorn emoji suggesting that Hogg’s condemnation of the rich should be broadcast far and wide is just another attack on capitalism — and a signing on to the progressive formula of breaking Americans into groups to hate each other, in our opinion.
📢 yes, yes! Speak truth to power! https://t.co/a7JQTncyKx

Since Tlaib is saying that so many of her colleagues in Congress are “the problem” — that they are racist and xenophobes — will the #RadicalFour denounce her comments and demand impeachment?
To this extent, they are right: Rich politicians like them are the problem.
There are career politicians who enter government “service” with moderate or empty bank accounts — and then join the 1 percent in wealth while in office.
We need term limits to allow everyday citizens who are in touch with reality to serve — not just the elitist money grabbers in both parties.
President Donald Trump had a heck of a time getting elected without either party supporting him; if he hadn’t been wealthy, it’s likely we never would have heard of him.
He is the exception — and as close to the everyday citizens as we will get, due to the power of big money in the two-party system and the mega-corporations that own our media.
We also know that the only way Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) got elected is because of a lack of choice in her New York congressional district.
Heck, we may be able to stop these two-year-long campaigns — and current politicians may have to work their jobs rather than position themselves for the next election. There needs to be some way we can remove the megacorp level of funding that is controlling our entire political system.
