    Default Robert Reich: There's a Revolt Against the Ruling Class Brewing -- Elites Don't See I

    We all know this but Robert explains it nicely. And there is something great about seeing someone actually talking about it.
    "He can't possibly win the nomination," is the phrase heard most often when Washington insiders mention either Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders.

    Yet as enthusiasm for the bombastic billionaire and the socialist senior continues to build within each party, the political establishment is mystified.
    Don't confuse this for the public's typical attraction to candidates posing as political outsiders who'll clean up the mess, even when they're really insiders who contributed to the mess.

    What's new is the degree of anger now focused on those who have had power over our economic and political system since the start of the 1980s.

    Seriously doubt that elite's have no clue about any revolt brewing, NWO is already in effect, I think more people are now just realizing how "F*#@ed" we are.

    Actually they are so damned arrogant that I would not doubt they have not figured it out. After all, as you said, they control everything so I am sure right now they see none of this as a threat.

    Thomas Jefferson
    Jefferson and the Founding Fathers,as Eisenhower so aptly stated,understood the Potential for the ''Disastrous Rise of Misplaced Power.''

    While the thought of a revolution hangs in the minds of a few, the majority aren't willing to gamble with the idea of loss, destruction and an angry wife that doesn't understand why you aren't bringing home the paycheck.
    We have become accustomed to life's small luxury's, the home and food, cars, shopping at the outlets ...
    None of the things the modern crowd can do without.
    The youth don't know any other life other then what they grew up in.
    Why fight when you think things are normal.
    To put it in my perspective, back when we were on strike ( 1995 I think ) we thought back then the union movement would grow and people would see what was happening to the working class. Here we are 20 years later and things only have got worst.
    Ask the average person about unions ...
    You might not like what you hear.
