    The right has demonized the elite, but I'm curious:

    1. Who are these people?

    2. What makes them "elitist"?

    3. Why are they unwanted?

    4. What is their "threat"?

    5. Do they make any contributions? and what are they?

    "Elitists" just act like they're better than everyone else and seek to impose their "better way of life" upon everyone else whether they like it or not. They attempt to do so under the guise of "helping people".

    Plenty of elitists in the Democrat Party.

    How is supporting democracy being an elitist?

    Just more bullshit from the right who want our country owned by the 1% because they worship them like Gods.

    An elitist is just a new term for an aristocrat. Someone who has had advantages and feels that they are best suited to rule the "little people" who in their view simply can't make responsible choices over their own lives.

    Obama is an elitist, as was Dubya
