Gap Grows Larger Between American People & Ruling Class

The Founders believed in We, The People.

Last July, an article in American Spectator confirmed what many of us (68%) had long thought:

There is a Political Class in America comprised of both elected politicians and unelected cultural elites, who not only don’t care what most Americans think, they hold us in contempt.

The article, “America’s Ruling Class — And the Perils of Revolution,” by , a professor emeritus of international relations at Boston University, makes a compelling case that the real divide in America is not so much between liberals and conservatives as between the bipartisan political-cultural ruling class (the “regime class”) vs. the American people (whom Codevilla calls the “country class,” as in America, the country). Whereas the majority of the “country class” are religious (Christians) and patriotic, the bipartisan ruling “regime class” — stripped of their lip-service rhetoric — are irreligious; arrogant and contemptuous of the American people; and do not love America or the American people. These traits are all symptomatic of a terrible narcissism. [Read excerpts of Codevilla’s 16-page article HERE.]
Now, there is more evidence of a yawning gap between this preening Ruling Class and the majority of Americans:
On illegal immigration:

On public employee  GOVERNMENT unions:

On Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security (and TSA crafter) Janet Napolitano:

On Muslims in America:

On the fading American Dream:

Rebellion Against the Elite:

Ivy League grads don’t make better workers based on their attitude and education. The ones I worked with on technology projects did not have a work ethic (lazy, entitlement mentality) or hands-on experience. Case study education is not sufficient for managing businesses / government.
The Federal Government is overloaded with well-connected and poorly performing Ivy Leaguers, such as Obama and Geithner.

The whole idea of “Ivy League” meaning elitism is bogus. Every gardner knows that ivy is an invasive creeping, climbing plant that ultimate destroys it’s surroundings. Wise gardners never let it get out of hand. Wise builders cut it back or it will destroy stone, wood and brick.
Americans have not been wise gardners and we are paying the price.

The educated-beyond-their-intelligence “ours doesn’t stink but yours does” crowd has just about run this nation into the ground.
Funny that when this country hit its innovative peak, the average education in America was around the eighth grade.
Of course, that was about the same level as a high school senior today, if not a college freshman in some quarters.
