The Ruling Elite Has Lost The Consent Of The Governed

Brimming with hubris and self-importance, the ruling Elite and mainstream media cannot believe they have lost the consent of the governed.

Every ruling Elite needs the consent of the governed: even autocracies, dictatorships and corporatocracies ultimately rule with the consent, however grudging, of the governed.

The American ruling Elite has lost the consent of the governed. This reality is being masked by the mainstream media, mouthpiece of the ruling class, which is ceaselessly promoting two false narratives:

1. The "great divide" in American politics is between left and right, Democrat/Republican

2. The ruling Elite has delivered "prosperity" not just to the privileged few but to the unprivileged many they govern.

Both of these assertions are false. The Great Divide in America is between the ruling Elite and the governed that the Elite has stripmined. The ruling Elite is privileged and protected, the governed are unprivileged and unprotected. That's the divide that counts and the divide that is finally becoming visible to the marginalized, unprivileged class of debt-serfs.

The "prosperity" of the 21st century has flowed solely to the ruling Elite and its army of technocrat toadies, factotums, flunkies, apparatchiks and apologists. The Elite's army of technocrats and its media apologists have engineered and promoted an endless spew of ginned-up phony statistics (the super-low unemployment rate, etc.) to create the illusion of "growth" and "prosperity" that benefit everyone rather than just the top 5%.

The 95% (us) is so much easier to control when it's beaten down by regulation, taxation, fees, and elite-encouraged and orchestrated racial and social divide. This is the legacy of Barack Obama, the one that Hillary Clinton will continue to build upon. She is no one's friend, save those who can further her aspirations through handing her and her husband millions of dollars. Not having such a capacity, we, the common folk of the United States, the voters, have nothing and mean nothing, save our votes, votes that Hillary wants so desperately.
