The Ruling Elite

I want to go back to this Kate O'Beirne post that I made earlier. I hear the conservatives promote the idea that the liberal elites are out of touch with the majority of Americans and that the people on the political right are the ones that are really in touch with the common man's interest and values. And I'll restate the paraphrase of what Kate O'Beirne said on Hardball last week concerning the current port issue:
Those of us who know and understand global economic issues are not concerned or alarmed about this business transaction. Only uninformed citizens who do not know or understand global economic issues are concerned. But really everyone should leave decisions as to what is best for this country up to the ruling elite....
Really, ask yourself, who are the ruling elite in this country? Aren't they the people that Bush calls "his base" and whom he gives the largest tax cuts to? Aren't the ruling elite the invisible players in the multinational corporations around the world who support the Neoconservatives right-wing economic agendas and seek to strengthen corporatations at the expense of the human rights or workers rights? Who has the money, who has the power? Liberals? Think again! Wake up before it's too late!
