American Feudalism

With the way this country is going we’ll soon have a few million overlords and more than three-hundred million serfs. If you forget what serfs are, they are free men who live their lives like slaves, in complete obeisance to the overlord. In this country we might best describe them as wage-slaves.

Look at the facts:  Corporate profits are at an all-time high but fewer Americans are employed than at any time in the last three decades. Wait a minute! That means that the plutocrats can be as greedy as they please without spending any more on American labor. Statistics support this contention since wages are at at the lowest percentage of the national economy as they have ever been.

Let’s rephrase this:  the rich are richer, the wage earners are poorer, and the “job-makers” have the economy going their way without having to create any jobs in this country.

The Democrats and the President may have slowed the demise of our democracy but they haven’t been bold enough to turn it around. However, it is clear that the Republicans are ready to accelerate the destruction. If you are one of the 300 million and you think the GOP is on your side, you are delusional.
