The U.S. Census Bureau just released their SAIPE data (Small Area Income and Poverty Estimates) for 2015 and what it shows should disturb every American regardless of political affiliation. One only needs to look at the Median Household Income by County to realize there is evidence of a rising oligarchy in America. Of the 8 richest counties in the U.S., five of them are located in Virginia or Maryland. Specifically these counties are all in close proximity to the center of the political universe Washington D.C.
A trusting person would just consider this some great cosmic coincident. A logical person would realize that Washington does not make anything except political promises, does not manufacture anything except political narratives and does not invent anything expect lies. How is the epicenter of American wealth surrounding our capital and not major financial centers like New York or Chicago? Why are these counties collectively doing better than the counties surrounding Silicon Valley where the greatest technological advances are made on a daily basis? The answers to these questions are unsettling at best and frightening at worse. What we are seeing is the establishment of an entitled political class who join the government to make money and not serve the people and that should scare every American.
