Letter to the editor: News media should expose scourge of Neo-Liberalism

The news media needs to cover more of the background and why politicians do what they do.
Neo-Liberals are an unknown quantity, but most have heard the name. They have stolen the good Liberal name and made it mean the opposite of the original.
Maybe some diligent reporter can research where this came from and why it is important now to understand this group.
Rich people were getting worried that Americans are voting against their interests, so they formed a group with lots of money to take the strength of the real Liberals and defeat their gains like Social Security and Welfare and health care and voting for all and lots of things that citizens fought for and think they have become built in.
Gerrymandering is a neo-liberal trick to reduce those who vote against them. Now Trump is pushing more neo-liberal horrors like cutting Social Security and other ways that our tax dollars help fellow citizens. Neo-liberals don’t want voters who might vote against them so they cut voter registration and make it hard to vote, unless you are rich and vote like them.
They have gotten rich by bleeding their corporations of funds that should be paying the workers a good percentage of profits for the good work they do to bring in those profits. The rich have it backwards. They think workers are stealing from them, with taxing and higher wages, but it is the opposite, they are the thieves.
Ayn Rand is another neo-liberal smudge. Her philosophy is selfishness. The news media needs to cover her teachings so the rest of us can see what is driving the rich followers of her evil thinking.
What a sad end to our Great American experiment.
Peter Grant
