Define Plutocrat

Zero Hedge is a must read for me many times a day.  Today “Welcome To The United States of Orwell, Part 1: Our One Last Chance to Preserve the Bill of Rights” caught my eye, especially this paragraph:

“Everything that Richard Nixon did to me, for which he faced impeachment and prosecution, which led to his resignation, is now legal under the Patriot Act, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, and the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).” Daniel Ellsberg. Can Congress legalize tyranny by passing a law that says it can? Can Congress shred the Bill of Rights by passing a law that says it can? Well, Congress has passed such a law, and President Obama–the most effective Trojan Horse president in American history, a plutocrat dressed as a “progressive”– rushed to sign it on New Years Eve 2011 when nobody was looking.

I had forgotten the definition of “Plutocrat” so I looked it up.

plu·toc·ra·cy (pl-tkr-s)
n. pl. plu·toc·ra·cies
1. Government by the wealthy.
2. A wealthy class that controls a government.
3. A government or state in which the wealthy rule.

A plutocrat is a member of the plutocracy. Isn’t it ironic that the OWS, complaining about Wall Street and the 1%, supports the president, a plutocrat, who wants to tax the rich to pay their fair share.

Some might have a complaint with Obama, even though Romney seems to be a part of the plutocracy as well.
