Fight the Aristocracy

The purpose of my writing is to demonstrate and hopefully inspire some American patriotism.  I hope to, if only for a minute, pull the eyes of complacence away from celebrity drama and sports entertainment to the withering tree of liberty.  We are losing our Democratic Republic to the vast armies of corporate lawyers and lobbiests, who seek to give our government over to the aristocracy.  Thomas Jefferson is my inspiration for this.  He warned us of this, he and others understood how the struggle for power works and how rare it was for the opportunity to hand the power of a nation over to the collective, out of the hands of tyrants, and create a government in the interest of the common good.

I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.
Thomas Jefferson
We see this now. The banksters have lobbied our representatives for decades. They have thrown their money at our elections and purchased the manipulation of our laws that regulate them.  They are winning.  They are siphoning all of the wealth the middle class had earned and they are funneling it to the top 1%.  There are now 400 Americans who hold more wealth than 150,000,000 Americans.  Those 400 Americans need to know their time has come.  America will not sit lathargic any longer.
