The American Elite Want to RATION Food, Power, and Gas for the Rest of Us

It's looking more and more like an "us vs. them" nation. A recent poll taken by Rasmussen (RMG Research) on behalf of The Committee to Unleash Prosperity had some alarming findings regarding how the richest 1% of America really feel about the rest of us.

Spoiler: They don't think highly of us. They couldn't possibly care less about our struggles. They live in an entirely different world than we do.

What is even more unsettling about the conclusions you will read is that these people are the ones who can afford to contribute to political campaigns and influence policies and legislation in America. We'd like to say that our government is a representative one, but let's not kid ourselves.

Money talks.

Who are the "American elite?"

The survey defines the "American Elite" as those "having at least one post-graduate degree, earning at least $150,000 annually, and living in high-population density areas (more than 10,000 people per square mile in their zip code)."

President of RMG Research Scott Rasmussen defined the participants as "urban academic elite" who are "extraordinarily influential in government, corporate America, and the philanthropic worlds." In some categories, the sector is further divvied up by regular elites and Ivy League elites.

So – well-to-do, well-educated city dwellers. Who greatly influence everything.
