Thread Name: BS: Election of the US President
Subject: RE: BS: Election of the US President
thank you, Bobert for the assist.

and to be honest, I fact checked using Wikipedia before posting responses to try to avoid errors... and launch even less productive tirades on this thread.

Thomas Jefferson championed the agrarian society... but in this industrialized nation that we have become, that role is now played by the middle class. A strong middle class is what will keep this nation viable. A strong middle class is vital to the democratic process.

Call it enlightened self interest, but I believe that world peace (or at least less violence) is dependent upon the fair distribution of wealth ( and justice)within a nation.
