They certainly aren't holding Office at the Fed level. Of course, there are a few exceptions to that statement... very few. Those exceptions all have been marginalized by the Plutocratic System.
The political "Right" and the "Left" on Main Street today are stuck in the Past. Today's politicians at the highest levels are not Repubs, Dems, Conservatives, or Liberals. Instead, they are Neoliberals/NeoConservatives/ Corporatists/Oligarchs/
Plutocrats (or their puppets) who use those old labels to manipulate the public... to divide and conquer. This is so obvious that it's sickening.
The whole political scene here in the USA is a complete sham. The purpose of it is to facilitate the greatest transfer of wealth (from most of us) to the Upper Crust in the history of Mankind. And it's continuing under Trump...big-time. None of it is a grand conspiracy. Rather, it's people with common interests working sometimes together, but mostly independent of one another, to attain mutual/common goals.
I've been closely following American politics since 1956 (1956 is not a typo). The pattern is clear: Edward Bernays style Propaganda has been (& is being) used by those in Power to mold the public mind, to move all of us toward the goals of the Plutocrats. The Powers-That-Be figured out many decades ago that, in a relatively Free society, brute force generally cannot be used to increase and guarantee their opulence. Rather, that has to be done by means of ubiquitous Propaganda.
The above thoughts/statements are not original with me. Over the decades, I've learned these ideas from many, many reputable people... all across the political spectrum. All of them have been marginalized to a great degree by those in Power. That has been accomplished by means of unrelenting Propaganda and Rules concocted by the Powers-That-Be... especially in the USA, but largely throughout the Western World as well. Since 2007, I've given example after example on this venue of the use of Propaganda in this great Land.
Until we stop drinking the Bernays Style Propaganda Kool Aid supplied by the Plutocracy/Oligarchy (which adheres to neither Republican or Democratic philosophy), we have little to no chance of preventing the move to a NeoFeudalistic Society. If we don't wake up, NeoFeudalism will reign supreme.
Not only my opinion. Be Well
