    with very strong justification, we can and should regard this as a coup d'état, the goal of which is the creation of a fascist plutocracy.

    The fact that it's being accomplished with money and stealth, and playing out over thirty years, makes this coup only that much more insidious and dangerous, but no less true.

    We are seeing a revolution happen before our very eyes, and the most frightening part is that those who can and should be leading the fight against it have either been bought off, or frightened into believing that this is the inevitable course of events.

    It's no accident that Obama ignited the passion of this country, because so many of the people in the middle class sensed that their futures and our country was being stolen, even if so few were able to articulate the terms of the loss, or recognize the form of the revolution in progress.

    For those of us who do understand how this country is being stolen, the frustration and the disappointment in Obama's refusal to be the transformative leader we so desperately need is no less intense.
