The government, in spite of what politicians say, holds no sentiment for the people.  It is not interested in the people at all until elections come around.  Other than that, it regards primarily the augmentation of its sphere of influence around the world.  It is presumed by many that the government is under their control.  This presumption, however, is mistaken.  People were never intended to wield such power.  Not until Andrew Jackson did people even participate in elections.  In fact the electoral college is still the governing body that elects the president.  The government is concerned only with other concentrations of powerful influence -- the wealthy.  It should be taken as a truism that opulent men will always rule, as they alone can invest heavily in economy, business and infrastructure.  People, paying back the interest on their scams, are merely serfs to them.
