The American Aristocracy

I hope you all are paying extreme attention to this one, since, like my previous posts, this isn't about a word being misused, it is about something that is happening that isn't being spoken about. The word is Aristocracy and the definition per the dictionary is: ar·is·toc·ra·cy [ar-uh-stok-ruh-see] noun, plural ar·is·toc·ra·cies.
1. a class of persons holding exceptional rank and privileges, especially the hereditary nobility.
2.  a government or state ruled by an aristocracy, elite, or privileged upperclass.
3.  government by those considered to be the best or most able people in thestate.
4.  a governing body composed of those considered to be the best or mostable people in the state.
5.  any class or group considered to be superior, as through education, ability,wealth, or social prestige.
Anyone who believes that we should still have an Aristocracy in the United States needs to seriously look at what the Revolutionary War was about and in fact what ALL revolutions in the past have been about.
