    are the most clueless about the way the world works.  They're the real "entitlement class".

    I'm not opposed to the Mitt Romneys of the world, I just wish they could imagine walking in someone elses shoes for a day and carry that knowledge with them.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

      that if you work for a Romney, you work for a totalitarian corporation. It's become so much the norm it isn't questioned. We may live in a democratic republic, but most Americans live under complete domination under the corporation they work for. They test your blood, tell you who to vote for, keep you from joining unions, dictate how you will spend your time, can lecture you about anything the please while you must keep to your station and remain quiet. While under their employ (in earlier times it was called being a servant) they own you. You are not free, unless you want to risk bankruptcy, losing insurance (if you're lucky to have it), and even homelessness.

      There is no real freedom in capitalism. This is simply true, and I'm tired of remaining quiet about this reality.
