10. Yeah, I'm going with 2) . . .

. . . mostly because wealthy folks aren't the brightest tools in the shed and think Capitalism As Is will solve the problems it creates.

. . . mostly because the narrative of the United States has moved so far to the right, moving to the left will put you at "Joe Lieberman".

. . . mostly because there ARE solutions, but the Reaganite Upper Middle Class and above would never agree to such measures.

. . . mostly because the military are "Theirs". That pelt-beret'd son of a bitch could start a full-scale nuclear war and not ONE of those he-men would stop him from destroying humanity. They'd PROTECT him, because "it's meant to be" and "he's the ultimate authority".

. . . mostly because the police are "Theirs" also. Just look at how much riot gear they wear at progressive demonstrations vs. their overall presence at Tea Party rallies.

. . . mostly because wealthy folks are so oblivious that they think they won't be gibbetted.
