The Kennedy’s have their problems with Joe Sr.. Considering the number of wealthy families that have ascended the seats of U.S. power, I ask myself have we replaced a monarchy with an oligarchy?

George H. W. Bush is archetypal of the old-moneyed interests that are constantly looking for new ways to concentrate more of this nation’s wealth (which is admittedly dwindling in value) into their own hands. Do you really trust a man who went half of his adult life without knowing what a barcode is to have the interests of the middle class and the poor in mind?
