    The frenzied attacks on Donald Trump by the U.S. governing elite and their slavish media/academic mouthpieces for his harsh but entirely truthful assessment of Senator McCain must leave you wondering if there is a possibility the America’s governing elite does not know how deeply and savagely it is hated by the citizenry?

    This seems too much to believe, but the attacks on Trump surely suggest that the elite’s collective authoritarian head is thicker and dumber than stone. If these men and women need a starting point to learn why most Americans would prefer to see their pictures on a bull’s eye at point-blank range, rather than on a grinning-like- Hillary selfie, they could consider the following dozen items.

    Poncho, here's a fun exercise: Google the list of grievances in the Declaration of Independence. Now, get a newspaper and count the similarities.

    The federal government today is committing many, if not most, of the same offenses listen against the Crown in the DoI.

    200 years ago, these things led us to war. Now, people won't even get off their butts and go vote.

    I already have.

    Now they (government and corporations) have a much more advanced understanding of how to manipulate the human mind. Thanks to Edward Bernays.

    200 + years ago preachers understood the king (government) didn't have a "divine right" to abuse his authority.

    200 + years ago people weren't being taught that we are the decedents of apes.

    200 + years ago this nation was founded on the idea that our rights come from God not government.

    200 + years ago this nation was founded on the principle of individualism since then the collectivists have convinced us that the individual (and his rights) must be sacrificed for the "greater good".

    200 + years ago the people understood that the majority more often than not is wrong because they believed what they read in the bible instead of what they are taught in public schools, heard on tv or read in the newspapers. Now people believe that if the majority believes something is so it must be so.

    Here's just one example of many where the majority was wrong.

    200 + years ago the majority believed bleeding people with leeches could cure illness. The majority was wrong.

    I think that those who are of that club know but do not care.

    Why should they? They know we're to busy playing the leftie vs rightie game to realize the whole system is corrupt.
