    Default America's Ruling Class

    America's Ruling Class and the Perils of Revolution

    One may agree or disagree with the relative merits of the classes described, but I think the nomenclature is accurate at least.

    Not hard to pick out which class I belong to, either.

    I think it's because you're from the wrong side of the tracks.

    *wiggles eyebrows at Oberon* We have a swimming pool and freshly squeezed lemonade over here... you're welcome to cross on over!

    the author seemed to enjoy drawing conclusions that seemed rather ludicrous to me, but then again, I even enjoy WEARING pink

    I thought the author committed some fallacies in this piece, but was nevertheless onto a significant truth... I agree with his general premise that the primary political division in this country is not between right and left, but between the rulers and the ruled. Truly, Michael Steele and Hillary Clinton have much more in common with one another than either of them have in common with you or me.

    quite true... I don't trust anyone in power, whether they're Reps or Dems... and I totally doubt that politicians have my interests at heart

    he was just a little unbalanced in his accusings of people, which is the type of thing I always take mental note of

    You can chalk that up to being a Dem reading a Paleocon article.
