Dems and the Public Trough « Politics As Usual »

I have believed, for quite some time now, that the driving force behind Democratic Party politicians’ eagerness for social programs was a thinly-veiled vote-buying scheme.

After some thought, it hit me the other day that for a non-insignificant (although perhaps not even reaching a plurality) portion of Democratic Party elites, the true intention is that if you provide money, you can attach strings. Thus, feeding the populace from the public trough becomes yet another way of controlling the unwashed masses.

For me, from now on, the “D” stands for “Domestication”.

Please note, however, that I draw a distinction between party elites and rank-and-file voters.
