The American Oligarchy

The RINO Wing of the Republican party, particularly the Bush family, is busy grooming it's own Barack Obama. I have already had these thoughts about the role they intend for George Prescott Bush. The fact that he is shipping off "for war" at the ripe, old age of 33 as Lieutenant in the Navy Reserve, assigned to an intelligence unit, pretty much solidifies my suspicions.

It will be portrayed as though "P" as he is called (very original) is shipping off to war. That should insult your sensibilities. He's not going to war. He'll be positioned as an intelligence officer sitting safely behind a desk shuffling paper somewhere in the rear without ever having fired a weapon. Like his uncle, he will get his credentials as a warrior without seeing battle. His role will be exaggerated to his political benefit.

The really convenient thing about "P" is that he happens to be, imagine this, half Mexican. He is the offspring Jeb and his Mexican born wife Colomba. The catapulting of Prescott into the political arena fits right into the world of identity politics we have allowed them to build for us. It certainly looks like the Bush family had a long term vision while "W" was embracing the invasion of our southern border and desire to grant amnesty of up to 20 million illegal aliens, most from Mexico.

An oligarchy is a form of government where most or all political power effectively rests with a small segment of the society. Oligarchies, often found in Latin America, are generally controlled by a few powerful families whose children are raised and groomed to be heirs of the power of the oligarchy. It is rarely, if ever, to the betterment of those governed. You won't find a strong middle class; an oligarchy is usually characterized by a very small upper or elite class and a very vast lower class. They govern in secrecy.

It would sure be a lot simpler to shift away from the shining city on a hill if a good quarter to a third of your population knows of no other governing system and is completely at home with this type of governance. Even easier if they know nothing of your values or traditions.

As Americans we need to reject this notion of breeding through pedigree into the power structure. We have already seen the fruits of this system: worthless rich patricians with no viable life experience supported by parents, family name, ivy league education and whatever else until they can worm their way into politics, which is one of the few areas where they are employable. It's true of the Bushes, the Gores, the Clintons, the Kennedys, etc. People who, in a sane world, could not get elected as dog catcher.

We need leadership. We need leadership that will put American interests first. We are a nation of 300 million people, we can do better than the families listed above.
