It's all about feeding their own self-interest, and the Idiot in the White House has become the Top Dog Evangelist of all time. We have 3 cashiers in my store who believe him when he says they're all going to make 'real' money... again. These people have been primed for years for this moron.
Concern should be real, for when this idiocy comes crashing down real damage is going to be done to many innocents. Let's just hope we are not among the millions of walking wounded.
