Classic "blame the people" post.
Some people may kike John Boehner.. but your post generalizes that ALL do and them blames the lower classes for their fate because:
"It has a racially biased, ignorant sea of gullible peasants, easily distracted by whatever shinny object is put in front of them. They will never become self aware enough, enlightened enough."
Your bias identifies with the dominant paradigm.
There are plenty of educated, savvy, enlightened Black citizens but that doesn't necessarily stop a white cop's bullet, nor the racist criminal "justice" system from finding cause to incarcerate said persons.
You mistake your no doubt narrow version of enlightenment FOR political power as if they are the same thing.
The Piketty Study shows that $ is moving to the top of the fiscal food chain. Other economists have explained that today's workman's wages buy less than they did 40 years ago. It's obvious that Big Money owns the metrics of power--and that means that IT sets the agenda--in this country.
Enlightenment, race, so-called "gullible" peasants have little to do with Legacy Wealth and the systems of power it's put in place.
YOU are the one who needs to become more aware instead of sounding like a Calvinist pig blaming the poor for being por.
And to conclude that the American people don't deserve a Democracy because a certain demographic is spiritually held back by fundamentalist views is more proof positive of your military mindset.
