The 2016 U.S. Election

by Richard Paul


Do not mourn for the failure of the elitist

pigs! Instead, cheer for the triumph of the

working class, the jobless, the disaffected, the

“deplorables!” In an earlier day, we were

derided as “the great unwashed.”  But what

we really are is The People.

“We’re the people….we keep a-comin”,

as Jane Darwell says in the closing lines of the

film of The Grapes of Wrath. And no matter

how much and how hard the elitist pigs push us

down, theycan’t push us out. So let us

celebrate the victory of working class over

chattering class!
