A Coup consists of the infiltration of a small but critical segment of the state apparatus, which is then used to displace the government from its control of the remainder. - Edward Luttwak, Coup d'Etat: A Practical Handbook
Republicans and their duped Conservative drones are pushing this Nation into a Land which resembles the Feudal Domains of Dark Ages Europe. 400 Americans own more wealth than the over 150,000,000 other Americans.
The Rich did not see the Progressive Victories of last 100 years as permanent and immutable. The Ultra-Reactionary Neo-Liberal Class Warfare the Rich have been waging upon Americans for the last 35 years has been incredibly successful. The 1% have returned America to levels of Income Inequality not seen since the Glided Age of Robber Barons and the Slave Plantations of The Founding Fathers.
A new Massive redistribution of wealth up to the Rentier Class began on November 1st, with the first of $50 Billion in cuts to Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP).
"It took us years to get here but we are here," House Agriculture Committee Chairman Republican Frank Lucas.
"The most common and durable source of faction has been the various and unequal distribution of property..." And,
"We are free today substantially but the day will come when our Republic will be an impossibility. It will be impossibility because wealth will be concentrated in the hands of a few."Now, Herman Cain succinctly declared the Republicans' simpler understanding of the economy,
"If you're poor... Blame yourself!"The cuts to SNAP aren't happening in a vacuum or as part of hypothetical economic model. They are being done while each and every Government program which aids the poor and working class is likewise under assault funded by a few hundred Americans and their Corporate Zombies. Meanwhile, 300 or so Republican apparatchiks have seized vital organs of Government and are using that power to overthrow the Democratic Republic.
And it's succeeding...
Daily, Americans are bombarded by the Right-Wing propaganda machine, AHIP saboteurs, and Republican plotters attempting to undermine the ACA (Obamacare) with their simplistic narrative, 'Obama lied!' so that they true goal of eliminating the Social Safety Net.
Unlike most, Coup attempts the Plutocracy already controls most of the Government, it's just every now and then, those dastardly poor and working class people don't readily vote themselves into Corporate Bondage and Wage Slavery.
Thus, Obamacare has become the Hill on which the Plutocracy is willing to sacrifice their Republican attack dogs upon because the Rich absolutely loathe the idea of working class people having a bit of breathing room and not living in fear of being bankrupted by a health care crisis.
"One of the problems so far is that many more people are signing up for Medicaid than are signing up to the private insurance plans in the market place" - Chris Wallace, Faux News
Faux News contributor, Dr. Marc Siegel said in an appearance on Sean Hannity’s show that “there is too much health insurance, it covers too much. Too many people have it."
And Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell complained the Poor people in Kentucky whom he's personally tried to keep down and indigent are getting the benefits of Obamacare,
"Well, 85 percent of the people who've signed up in Kentucky have signed up for Medicaid. That's free health care. The rollout is quite mixed -- quite mixed -- and largely people signing up for Medicaid. Free health care."Unlike, Senator McConnell, who "works hard" for his Government provided health care.
Like, the "Banana Republics" fostered by The United Fruit Company or the Anglo-Persian Oil (now known as BP) dealings in Persia, Corporate Monstrosities use money and influence to purchase a Government which conforms to the whims and desires of a small cadre of Wealthy Elites and enforce a Corporate Hegemony which oversees the ruthless implementation of Austerity politics; the raiding of municipal pensions, elimination of food programs for poor children, the destruction of health care for wounded veterans and the blatant theft of the last bits of wealth held by the elderly.
"We live in a society where politics is controlled by money; wealthy individuals and big businesses," Jeffrey Hollender — the founder of the natural products company Seventh Generation.The 1% of the 1% truly have a vision of a smaller US Government, one small enough to fit in their pocket.
