Just like the Bolsheviks, we're ruled by an elite minority that claims to represent the majority. In issue after issue where strong majority consensus prevails in the population, the minority view is Washington policy.
Secure the border as a pre-condition to immigration reform? Still not done.
Don't give foreign aid to fund our adversaries like the Muslim Brotherhood? Another $2 billion borrowed from our future and given to our sworn enemies.
Require proof of identity to vote to assure citizenship, residency and prevent voting in multiple districts? Even though it protects all legitimate voters of all colors and ethnicities? Nope. That would endanger to many incumbents who benefit from current games.
And more. Princes in robes rule us.
