I don't suppose you would indulge me with a bit more detail as to what you see it as.

Quote:
"The American ruling class. It will do anything to protect its wealth and privileges. the American ruling class has acquired the characteristics of a decadent aristocracy. Self-obsessed and narcissistic, it seems utterly impervious to the feelings and sentiments of that portion of society that is compelled to work for a living.

The chasm between the promises of the election year and the reality of government policy is becoming more evident each day. As the need for action becomes ever more urgent, the working class will lose its patience with purely rhetorical and empty invocations of "change."
This, BTW, I wholly agree with. Now for the difficult business of defining EXACTLY who that American ruling class REALLY is.

Mole people. Ever since that episode of the old Spider-Man where they stole the Empire State Building, I've known that they're responsible for everything.

Me too...a guy can dream can't he :-)

The bottom 95% or so of the working class wouldn't mind this I am sure.

Once they figured out that honest (as in not rigged) competition can do more for them than any govt program ever will.

Those who choose not to try to succeed wouldn't want it though. They depend too much on just voting themselves what they need.
