Whenever anyone calls attention to extremely unequal income distribution, the radical right screams "class warfare" as if the label should stop all further discussion. But in fact, there is class warfare by some of the rich on the poor and middle class. The attack on unions and the call for much less government spending and austerity is a cover for getting rid of anything that helps the less fortunate. These rich simply want the poor to disappear--certainly not vote. The rich can provide for their own good life. It reminds me of the aphorism, "One for all and one for all" said the elephant as he danced among the chickens!
