I’ve pointed out before the reason we had our First War of Independence is that not only were we oppressed by the British Crown, but that they had imported their decadent elites into our middle-class country.
For the matter, our Second War of Independence (the War between the States, or the War for Southern Independence) was not about slavery, but the elites in the North trying to economically and politically exploit the South.
Or as Thomas Paine wrote in Common Sense, the elites in Europe wanted “luxury, indolence, amusement, and pleasure.” You can see that in our own political elites, such as the Bushes and Clintons, who, being parasites, live, as all parasites live, on the blood of others.
Only the middle class counts. Without it, this country would be far reduced from what it is, to the point it would be unrecognizable.
Today we have our economic and political elites trying to exploit the masses. Hence the rise of Trump, who is part of the elite but has apparently turned “traitor” to them, meaning he’s putting the country above his own class. It’s happened before.
Not all “elites” are decadent. The political ones always are, but the natural aristocracies aren’t.
Thomas Jefferson divided the elites into the “natural” ones and the “artificial” ones, the latter being based on “birth and blood.”
Most people can see through both the Clintons and Bushes, but I’ve seen people who can see through the Bushes but not the Clintons, and others who can see though the Clintons but not the Bushes.
It’s astonishing the delusions of some people, but then, ultimately, the whole human race is deluded. But some of us are far less deluded than others.
Andrew Carnegie funded most of the libraries in the United States and before he died gave away most of his money. J.P. Morgan bought a huge amount of art and funded many museums across the U.S.
Say what you will about Bill Gates, but he is using his money to fight diseases and fund sanitation throughout the world, and is planning to give away his money when he dies.
What have the Bush and Clinton crime families ever done except start wars and murder people and make fortunes from it? What charities or other organizations have any of foul, greedy criminals even given a cent to? What have either of them done for this country except lie, steal, exploit, extort and murder?
The very wealthy are parasites and so are the deserving poor. There are many similarities between them: the laziness, the indolence, the drugs, the sex, the trying to live off of the blood and sweat of others, the lying, the crime, the blaming of their problems on other people.
None of the Bushes have ever had a job and since they’ve gone into politics neither have the Clintons – corrupt, greedy, blood-thirsty liars.
The government is now supporting policies to destroy the middle class and create more super-wealthy and poverty-stricken poor.
Our political “elites” - the Bushes and Clintons – are bad people. Both, no matter what they say, want to destroy the middle class. Otherwise they wouldn’t support destructive policies to export jobs and import the stupid.
