The “New Mandarins,” the “New Elites,” or whatever you want to call them, are ruining America.  These are the members of the real entitlement class.  These are the people believe that it’s our responsibility to support their lavish lifestyles, their pensions, their huge lobbying fees, and all the other perks and privileges come from riding the ruling class government gravy train.  There is much talk in the media today about how many people are dependent on the government.  But the real problem isn’t at the bottom end, it’s at the top end.   This country’s problems haven’t been created by the poor.  They haven’t been created by people who are the recipients of government welfare programs.  The real problems have been created by this self-appointed ruling elite.  More are more people are recognizing this.  Scott Rasmussen of Rasmussen Reports has a great commentary on this subject today.
