The whole point about the founding of the United States of America was that this was not to be a nation of classes like all the nations of Europe and the rest of the world.
Right from the Declaration of Independence to the Constitution, the federal statutes and the laws of all the states, there were no legal provisions for an American aristocracy because, in theory at least, all men were supposed to be equal.
But, of course, we know that’s all a load of bullshit; America has been a society of classes from the beginning; it’s just that they were never carved in stone; there was always a bit more mobility and elasticity between them here.
If you watched the presidential debates today like I did you realized that the politics now is all about class. But there is only one class which matters today – only one class which is politically correct to mention – the so-called middle class.
Not once did President Obama or Governor Romney mention a lower class, an upper class, or any other class in America; it was all about the middle class. They might get away with talking about rich people and poor people, but you will never catch a politician today talking about any class except the middle class, i.e. the American class.
It’s like it’s OK to be in the middle class, that’s wonderful, but in the United States of America there is really no lower or upper class, both of which carry a stigma that no one wants to be associated with. After all, America is supposed to be a classless society.
And then, of course, there is the political class, that aristocracy of criminal parasites who would rather associate themselves with the middle class so they can try to blend in with normal people.
Perhaps one of the dumbest in the political class, Vice President Biden, said Tuesday that the middle class has been "buried the last four years," a gaffe that Republicans pounced upon immediately to use against President Obama at the first presidential debate.
He said that at a campaign stop in Charlotte, N.C., thinking he was successfully criticizing Republican tax policies which Democrats claim would cut taxes for the rich and hike them for the middle class.
"This is deadly earnest," Biden said. "How they can justify -- how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. How in the lord's name can they justify raising their taxes with these tax cuts?"
How about that? A tax cut for the “rich” is actually a tax hike for the “middle class.”
Mitt Romney loved it. "Agree with @JoeBiden, the middle class has been buried the last 4 years, which is why we need a change in November #CantAfford4More," he tweeted.
"Joe Biden said what so many Americans are feeling every day. For four years, the middle class has been buried by Obama's failed policies from higher taxes to more debt which is why he has a difficult time explaining why he deserves another term in the White House," said an RNC official.
A Romney campaign email also included numerous examples of the middle class being "buried" during Obama's term -- by debt, by high unemployment and by falling incomes. An Obama campaign official countered, blaming Republican policies for crushing the middle class -- well before Obama took office.
"As the Vice President has been saying all year and again in his remarks today, the middle class was punished by the failed Bush policies that crashed our economy -- and a vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan is a return to those failed policies. With more than five million private-sector jobs created since 2010, the Vice President and President Obama will continue to help the middle class recover and move the nation forward," said the official.
You see, the lower class wasn’t affected be either the Bush or Obama economic policies, nor was the upper class, and certainly not the political parasite class, which benefits no matter how the economy is performing. Only the middle class suffered. That’s because, as far as they are concerned, it’s the middle class which will determine the outcome of this presidential election.
The fact of the matter is that everyone has suffered the effects of the Bush and Obama economic blunders – even the political parasite class. Their home prices have tumbled just like everyone else’s and the value of the dollars in their wallets is plummeting by the day. It’s just that they can fix that for themselves in the future while the rest of us can’t.
America: now it’s all about class – the middle class.
