    MRC Bozell, 'Newt vs. The Ruling Class' recalls A. Codevilla's America's Ruling Class -- And the Perils of Revolution

    quote=Bozell]It brings us back to Angelo Codevilla’s piece last summer in The American Spectator on “America’s Ruling Class.” What Codevilla called the “country class” – the party of freedom, as opposed to a “ruling class” that resents the country’s input – has rarely captured the GOP flag. The GOP rulers sabotaged Barry Goldwater and ultimately were stuck with Ronald Reagan. Contrary to quaint historical rewrites, they were not in his camp, and instead bogged Reagan down with establishmentarian deal-makers and principle-shredders.

    The country class is demanding the GOP choice be independent of the GOP establishment and confrontational with the radical Left. It is why both camps are now united in their desire to tear this man down. He is a threat.[/quote]

By contrast, while most Americans pray to the God "who created and doth sustain us," our ruling class prays to itself as "saviors of the planet" and improvers of humanity. Our classes' clash is over "whose country" America is, over what way of life will prevail, over who is to defer to whom about what. The gravity of such divisions points us, as it did Lincoln, to Mark's Gospel: "if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand."

    Newt looks like an insider and "ruling class" type himself. The only one who has an ok standing in the polls and is not an insider is ol' Ron.
    Don't believe any facts that I say! This is the internet and it is filled with lies and untruth. I invite you to look up for yourself the basic facts that my arguments might be based upon. This way we can have a discussion where logic and hints on where to find information are what is brought to the forum and people look up and verify facts for themselves.

    Your statement is as clear as the ramblings of a druggie. Could you rectify that?
