Who says we do not have royalty in this country? Of course we do, it's called the political class. It is the people who feed off of the taxes that they force you and I to give them to sustain their lifestyles. And they seem to be doing very well for themselves while more and more people are struggling.
This reminds me of what I learned about France before the revolution. While the lives of the average french citizen became more and more difficult, the royalty continued to live it up.
Oh those poor public servants. Their defense of the American way of life is truly selfless and thankless.
It's amazing how profitable defending the American way of life can be.
