Senator Sanders Exposes Corruption of US Government and Wealthy Elitists

Just a few nuggets from his speech, which you can watch in it's entirety.  The top 1% of U.S. citizens makes more than the bottom 50%.  Exxon Mobil took in over 19 billion dollars in profit last year.  How much tax did they pay on that?  Minimum wage earners that are single in the U.S. pay an average of 22% tax on their income.  That would equate to about 4.2 billion dollars for Exxon Mobil.  So what did they pay?  Zero dollars.  Nothing.  What's worse?  They received 156 million dollars in refunds from the IRS.  For what?  For earning 19 billion dollars of course!

The Lord warned of these conditions and those wealthy who would abuse the poor.  (Ps. 12:5, 22:22-23, Is. 1:17-24, Amos 2:6-7, 4:1, Zech. 7:10, Mal. 3:5, Jam. 5:1-6)  Such a people must, they must face the judgment of God for their greed and wickedness.  And so they will soon, very soon.
