Will the Wealthy Run America's Government under Donald Trump?

Trump is assembling the wealthiest cabinet in history — so wealthy that its members have more money than the bottom 1/3 of American households combined. That does not sound like an "anti-establishment" administration to me.

Can this really be true? Well, let's explore abit to see if there is anything to corroborate the assertion made by U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders.

Okay, enough of that. Let's learn abit more about the folks with whom Donald Trump is surrounding himself. Open the following embedded link to learn:
In my opinion:
The wealthy have always seemed to control America, albeit covertly behind the scenes. Now, it looks as though the wealthy have overtly taken political control of the Government of the United States of America. The dominate force in the American electorate have sold their souls to the company store.

Hmmm.... How about a little diversion?

Have you ever wondered about the phrase, "sold their souls to the company store?"

Well, now you can learn about that phrase by opening the embedded link contained within the following:
Who Sold Their Souls to the Company Store?

As an aside:

The rich get richer, the poor get poorer. I just thought I'd throw that in just because it came to mind.

Andrew Jackson, the seventh President of the U.S. (1829–1837), in his 1832 bank veto, said that, "when the laws undertake... to make the rich richer and the potent more powerful, the humble members of society... have a right to complain of the injustice to their Government."

William Henry Harrison, the ninth President of the U.S. (1841), said in an October 1, 1840 speech, "It is true democratic feeling, that all the measures of the government are directed to the purpose of making the rich richer and the poor poorer."

I am mindful of the urban legend that in 1789, when being told that her French subjects had no bread, Marie-Antoinette (bride of France's King Louis XVI) supposedly sniffed, “Qu'ils mangent de la brioche”—“Let them eat cake.”

I cannot help but wonder what will America be like for economically disadvantaged people and for the working middle-class in America under The Millionaire/Billionaire Club, aka the Executive Office of the President and The Cabinet of the administration of Donald Trump.

Answer: No more than any other government on the face of the earth. Samuel warned us what to expect when we sought a King other than God. Have a great holiday season, you and yours!
