This is insane. We need a working class people just as much as innovators (I refuse to call them elite because I respect the working class). No one's frowning on innovators. We're just criticizing your bigotry toward the working class, and I'm not one to throw that word around lightly (this may be the first time I've actually accused someone of it personally). Without the working class, none of the ideas of the innovators would ever see fruition. What do you think? They're going to mass produce it themselves? Hehehe...Both parties should be teaching kids elite status is proper status. The working class is the enslaved class, sprinting in a hamster wheel. This should be taught as soon as first grade, through pictures. Learning to think, and act like a elitist, is some of the best preparation you can teach a child going into the real world. It opens their eyes to the world of mundane lunch breaks, 8 to 5 robotic programming, and working years only to get skimpy vacation privileges over the summer, or sick days. It opens their eyes to the evils of Corporate America. Elitists are some of the best thinkers in this country. Stop frowning upon them. I laugh when I hear, "The elite are the problem with this country," when in all actuality, the elite make the most out of their time on this earth, and that thinking causes one to live out to their death bed a very unfulfilled life.
The working class are very happy, and have great respect for themselves as for their hard work making ideas reality. Maybe you've forgotten people have different values about quality of life. Much research has shown that even the superpoor around the world are among the happiest people in the world. The American Dream is whatever you want it to be for yourself.
You won't have a party left to cling to if you keep acting this way. It was the working class who put Obama in power, and it's the working class who turned on the Democrats after 8 years attitudes like yours.
