The Long, Bloody Struggle for Freedom

Adrian Mitchell (1932-2008), English Poet

Why do so many ordinary Americans, mainly Republicans, think the ruling class is on their side in their struggle for freedom? They are far from free. Their electoral system is a rich man’s toy mean to keep out the poor and middle classes, yet the poor and middle classes in the USA think they are free, and brag about it. Not only that but they want to export their brand of freedom and their rulers to the rest of the world, and cough up the tax dollars they can ill afford to keep the military going, and send their sons to distant fields to die murdering foreign families. That is the Christian nation, is it?

Hardly an advert for the US ruling class or their Christian supporters.
