Good observation. However, I would say the democrats think they are the new noble class, and their function is to support the king at any cost. The king, no doubt, is Barack Obama. He makes the law; he thinks he is entitled to make it. He keeps court like the medieval kings did. He rewards his friends and punishes his enemies. No wonder, his fawning entourage is following him and reverently, hoping to receive a part of King Obama’s “stash.” The whole country is the king’s property, but he is a benevolent king. He distributes the goods justly. He cares for the “poor” and the “sick.”
The democrats’ mindset is medieval. They believe they are “better born” than the rest of us. They are more intelligent, more educated, more refined, more moral, and every way more NOBLE than the rest of us. These new nobles (same as the old) look down at the “lovers of money,” the “merchants,” and “tradesman,” and “innkeepers,” etc. These rebellious people create their wealth by their own initiative. They hate them all, because they don’t depend on the king’s benevolence.
If you think the democrats are trying to lead the country back to the Middle Ages, you are not far from the truth.
