AMERICA’S RULING CLASS — AND THE PERILS OF REVOLUTION By Angelo M. Codevilla from the July 2010 – August 2010 issue

"Let them eat cake"

The title of this story pretty much says it all.  This is a 6 page story that I feel is pretty comprehensive and “on the nose” about the current state of American politics, which is in my opinion, in the sewer.  Rather than a brief synopsis, I urge you to read the article and get the full picture Angelo Codevilla is trying to paint.

    After reading an article like this that pretty much confirms everything that one believes to be true about how our government functions, you have to wonder what happened to the Founding Fathers families and all of their integrity, fortitude and values that appear to be non existent in today’s government. You would have thought they would have carried on with their legacy to keep this country and the constitution intact as they had formed a most perfect union and knew better than anyone what lay ahead for the American people. The government out grew the people without their knowledge and as tax money increased and the government was allowed to change articles in the constitution to keep up with the changing times and corruption, that’s where the Founding Fathers made their mistake. They should have put specific terms and limits on what could be added to the articles of the constitution that were not necessarily based on the change of the times but mostly left the constitution as an original document, which also should have specified just how small of a government would be needed and nothing more. The government soon realized the power they had over the people and from then on it was no holds barred. From Eminent Domain (stealing) over the American Indians to taxing everything and everybody including telling people what they can and cannot do, ie; running Moon Shine, people have been losing their Freedom. But hind sight is always 20/20 isn’t it? It’s too late now because the government (Ruling Class) has gotten too big, corruption runs too deep, too much freedom has been lost and when you consider the people that have been allowed into this country the last twenty five or so years, they have no idea what our Founding Fathers had created and this ruling class is gonna take advantage of that and keep right on running over everybody just like they always have. Just like this article says, they don’t need to know the rules or laws, they just need to know who they empower.

    If this article is not enough to convince anyone how our government works maybe they should consider this video. http://www.youtube.com:80/watch?v=MwhKuunp8D8&feature=player_embedded

    Every time I hear of something that our Commander in Chief refuses to address like the Arizona border it still makes me wonder how is it that we have a self proclaimed devout Muslim named Barrack Hussein Obama as President? Aren’t we fighting people with names and Religions like that in the Middle East? Just what is it that keeps our Senators and Congressmen from speaking up? How is it that a third or fourth of them are not saying a word? Our Commander in Chief will not show evidence of his birth place and it’s no secret that this is a huge issue. According to Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution, this Usurper is not eligible to be President. He also has admitted he was not born in America. Yet he sits in the Oval Office signing official documents like he’s at a book signing in Borders Book Store. Its obvious Barrack is Hell Bent on destroying America, but it seems to be just pushed under the carpet by our government officials. So what’s going on? Is this just some sort of conspiracy keeping peoples minds and attention off some other big issue? I think not. We all know Barrack is pushing Socialism onto the American people. So why isn’t our government addressing the issue? Are they being threatened? Are they just keeping their mouths shut so they can continue to get a paycheck, retirement and health care (yes)? Are they all Communist or Socialist Marxist (yes)? Something is going on here and it’s not in the American people’s best interest. The “Ruling Class” (Democrats and Republicans) have a strong grip on the United States and something is going to give and it’s not going to take very much more time until we find out what it is and where we are all headed.
    Take this City of Bell California for example and all the greedy City Officials. These citizen’s are ticked off and they are making their voices heard. Is this a sign of what’s coming ahead? I hope so. Well maybe not hope, but I’d like to see our state/government employees be held accountable for their incompetency and dishonesty. Or are we already a Communist country and people just can’t see it? When you think about it, if it wasn’t for the fact that so many Americans own fire arms we would be under total control of our government.
