7. This is a great article

I realized years ago that it wasn't about the money for these people, it was about the power and the freedom from law. Orwell really nailed it in 1984. They would happily downgrade their lifestyle in return for infinite power.

I disagree with why the author thinks they hate Obama, but only slightly. The President feels like he needs to keep the 1% happy in order to keep things going(and him in office), but really, he's not impressed with these privileged assholes. Even if he says the words, the cool disdain he feels for these people comes across when he has to talk about it, and that filters through to us.

They need a high-priest that can convince the masses that the 1% really ARE gods, rather than a group of exceptionally successful looters and exploiters. Why they ran Romney, I'll never know- you can't be the high priest AND one of the "gods" at the same time. People get to see the real face of one of the "gods" and they wonder what the hype is about.
