Romney and the 99%
With Romney leading the pack for the Republican nomination, it is germane to ask what is his take on the inequality in American society?

This reveals how out of touch he actually is. The United States fought the War of Independence to rid itself of an aristocratic elite. From across the Atlantic, it looks like aristocracy is coming back into vogue.
