Brian talks about how it's the big companies who forget their workers, and forget where they came from, and how it's the worker who built that company. this is a common sentiment and there are politicians out there who are willing to take this on but they are affraid to take a chance on something new like Sanders or warren.

It's not rocket science. Not much difference in the parties since they are both corporate owned.

g yes. in which case, one party seems to think that they are allowed to ignore the very basis of the entire american experiment. that "ALL men are created equal, endowed by their CREATOR with certain INALIENABLE rights. Among these are Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness." The one party decides that there are exceptions. Like this person does, apparently.
