Easy one!

The whole justice system is already set up by income level, they plan for the rest to die in the streets homeless.

More room for the illegals that work cheap then. Good business plan.

We are already an Aristocracy.

The dividing line to be in this club is a job title of Doctor, Lawyer, Judge, Politician, Insurance Executive, Wall Street Executive, Ect.

The money dividing line is that the aristocracy class generally starts at a bottom point of $150,000 dollars a year which usually includes Beer Distributors, Dentist, and many New Car Dealers.

Everyone below this line is considered a wanna-be or just a plain low class citizen.

The elite call those on the lower rungs 'workers' if they can make satisfactory profit from their labor or from consumers. Those that don't contribute much to the elitist's profits are 'useless eaters.'

Maybe the midieval names will make a comeback: Masters and serfs, masters and indentured servants, masters and peasants, and/or masters and villeins.

So very many Americans have succumbed to sophisticated propaganda campaigns through the years. It's appalling how many think tanks exist for just the purpose of pumping out propaganda to control the masses--and American tax dollars fund them. People are led to believe that advertising and surveys are for selling purposes and demographics studies. Well, they may be, on one level. The elite get a lot of bang for our bucks.

All the while Americans are being told they're great and special in the world, the global elite have been slowly chipping away at our constitution, our economy and what makes us America. National sovereignty has become a dirty word.

People had better wake up--the same cartel that funded Hitler is at work building a one world government, whether we want it or not.

If this is true then what can be done about it?
Voting people into and out of gov. makes little to no difference

I believe you and I also believe that a lot of money is paid each year to find, study, and anticipate the revolt point for the average citizen.

Since the Banker has legal ownership of most Family Homes and Family Autos...

The revolt line moves up in a direct proportion of to how we value those items.

A form of self-induced slavery.

We will owe our souls to the company store--another day older and deeper in debt.

I imagine there will be many new experiences after the nationalization process has been completed. Freedom may soon become just another memory for nostalgia buffs. We live in interesting times.

The "New Freedom" might include living in your own trailer on your own land except the tax man can have it if you default on the land taxes.

Most any Real Estate Contract (Buying or Renting) now has little or no value for freedom or democracy.

It is hard to believe that people came here to escape the firm rule of the British...and whatever they were running from seemed to have followed them.

It was stated by an Economics Professor that the early American workers could be easily exploited because they were considered an "Immobile Workforce."

That simply means that even if they got enough money to buy a car...that they really have nowhere to go except to another Coal Mine that treated workers the same as the one they just left.

The word "Immobile" might rather mean that workers are practically immobile to move up the ladder of success or change their basic status in the Capitalistic System that we all must honor.

The Capitalistic System and The Free Enterprise System will eventually clash when the workers finally figure out that the Marginal Cost of going to work exceeds the Marginal Cost of staying home.

My grandparents always told me this...and I quote:

We lived through the first depression because we cared about our neighbors and we had food to share.

You will have trouble in your depression because you will have neither.
