Edmund. 25 year old Bostonian. Third year law school student and a degree holder in American/Legal History. Lover of fine art, literature, and sports. Ardent supporter of the free market and individual liberty. I admire those who build and discover things, both physical and intellectual.
My title comes from this line: "...a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."
There is an evil 1% in this country. It is not made up of hard working business owners and innovative wealth creators. It is not composed of the men and women of the middle class who struggle against regulations day in and day out trying to squeeze a profit out of their small businesses, all while trying to keep their workers employed.
It is also certainly not the workers, the poor, the starving. Nor is it some religious group, young people, or some race they want you to hate.
No, it is not any of the usual classes of people they always push in front of you as “evil.”
It is the “ruling class;” the politicians, their dolled up families, their press, and their business cronies who sell out capitalism to bow at their rulers altar. All of the pitiful people who dwell in the Capital, living plush lives off of our wealth and labor while looking down at us in scorn. It is any of those people who feel that they can dictate our lives to us because “they know what is best.”
That is your 1%, and they have gotten away with far too much for far too long.
It is time to rein them in.
Unjustified blame. Then again I think the shut down was a good thing. No government is good government.
A primary debate with Rubio, Cruz and Paul is going to be epic. The first two are the best public speakers the GOP has had since Reagan, and Paul is his father on articulate steroids.
