The Rising Class System in America

President Obama is doing nothing to remedy this tragedy. The Occupy Wall Street movement understands it as a result of their experiences.

Romney and Santorum and Paul all want to further the spread between the rich and the poor. They believe in the class system. Ron Paul is an extremist. Santorum is stupid and incompetent. He was labeled "the dumbest member of Congress", and defined this way, "Santorum is the Latin for asshole." Romney is a incompetent and over his head without any new ideas. He is a regressive, along with the other two.

Here is an excerpt that is interesting:

Stephen Marche of Esquire: "... a class system has arrived in America— a recent study of the thirty-four countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development found that only Italy and Great Britain have less social mobility.... In the United States, the emerging aristocracy remains staunchly convinced that it is not an aristocracy, that it's the result of hard work and talent. The permanent working poor refuse to accept that their poverty is permanent. The class system is clandestine.... The majority of new college grads in the United States today are either unemployed or working jobs that don't require a degree. Roughly 85 percent of them moved back home in 2011, where they sit on an average debt of $27,200. The youth unemployment rate in general is 18.1 percent.... The Tea Partiers blame the government. The Occupiers blame the financial industry. Both are really mourning the arrival of a new social order, one not defined by opportunity but by preexisting structures of wealth." ...
