    At least, not in an "we're all in this together" or "the job of government is to govern" kind of way. They certainly do have a vision and a goal for the country, which they assiduously try to overlay with a patina of super-patriotism and ersatz religion. The overlay is getting thinner and thinner, but they keep glopping it on.

    No, the folks who really don't get it are in the popular media who pretend that the patina is the reality. There are more voices pointing it out, but we need to really strip the bark off the Republican agenda, and call things as they are: Attempts to install a permanent overclass that sucks up all the Wealth it can while leaving the Labor that created that Wealth with nothing.
