The ruling elite in DC are doing great.  Income is up, the job market is hot, real estate is booming and the expensive restaurants are full.   Meanwhile, the poor in DC are doing much worse, and much of the rest of the country is suffering.  Ten of DC’s surrounding counties are in the top 20 counties for per capita income nationally.  Coincidence?  I think not.  And that money is being taken from  you.

The real fight for liberty and freedom, and the fight for economic prosperity is against the ruling elite.  They don’t care about you, and they never will.  The labels “Democrat” and “Republican” are not relevant.  In both parties, few of them care about you at all.

Seem extreme?  Don’t believe me?  Check out this from Reuters:

“In the town that launched the War on Poverty 48 years ago, the poor are getting poorer despite the government’s help. And the rich are getting richer because of it.

The top 5 percent of households in Washington, D.C., made more than $500,000 on average last year, while the bottom 20 percent earned less than $9,500 – a ratio of 54 to 1.

That gap is up from 39 to 1 two decades ago. It’s wider than in any of the 50 states and all but two major cities. This at a time when income inequality in the United States as a whole has risen to levels last seen in the years before the Great Depression.”

Enough is enough.  It is time to rid ourselves of people who behave like they are royalty and get this country back to self-governance.   King George attempted to “rule” over America, and DC is doing the same now.  When will it end?
