I am not sure who said this but its so true:

"If the wealthy amass so much political power that they are able to seize the reins of government and thereby take all the wealth of the land and drive the people into poverty and want, then history has amply shown that the day will inevitably come when the people are so poor that they have nothing left to eat they will eat the rich."
We are in the fight of our lives to retain what little has not already been stolen by the rich.  People hate it when you call it class warfare but what else can you call the historic redistribution of wealth that has occurred away from the poor and middle class to those who need it least?
Did you know that the Walton family that owns Walmart (6 people) have a greater worth than the bottom 40% of all Americans (That is 125 Million people) yet it costs taxpayers :

$943 — average annual cost to taxpayers of providing Medicaid, food stamps, and cash assistance for each Walmart employee, based on data from Ohio21.

Walmart insists that manufacturing be done in cheaper countries like China (costing good paying American jobs) and they pay their employees like shit which is why they qualify for government assistance so they are obscenely wealthy and their employees are at the poverty level and the American taxpayer foots the bill.

If lower taxes on the rich (the job creators---In China) really help employment why was the George W. Bush years (without the financial collapse) the worst job creating period in modern times? Its a failed economic policy and Romney/Ryan are doubling down on it. Isn't the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result?
