The British have the Queen, the Saudis have their King and we have a Republic –where everyone is equal and the people rule. Right? In this week’s Majority Points we’ll explore America’s Royalty or ruling class. Yes, we have them. No bejeweled crowns or lavish weddings. Instead our royals are destroying the promise of America. If you’re reading this, you’re probably not part of it – but you’re paying for it every day. They are the cause of our ballooning debt, over-taxation and slide into European-style statism.
It might surprise progressives that the American Ruling Class isn’t the rich. Progressives wage war on those who are successful, wealthy and accomplished for the sake of dividing America.

Let’s take a look at who they are. It’s the first step in doing something about them.
