It’s pretty obvious that the big beneficiaries in the real estate industry, before the bottom fell out, were the home builders. They pretty much got all the Democrat pork sent their way through fraudulent lending practices made possible through Fanny May and Freddie Mac, and the Demoncrat legislation that made most any ne’er-do-well a homeowner.
So for those that speak from that side of the political spectrum (far left) and try to make a case for Republicans cutting each others throats to ascend to power… well, let’s just consider the source. Interestingly they also hope for the resulting social upheaval (that would be from both major parties) that will come from the policies of the “left” in order to enhance the value of their PM investments. That used to be called “evil intent”, but there is probably a more modern terminology for it (Svengali, perhaps).
