Is Washington forming a new Aristocracy?

Captain John Smith was one of the first leaders in the settlement of Jamestown, in the Virginia Colony. After the killing winter of 1609 when only 50 of the 600 settlers survived, Captain Smith encouraged farming with a famous admonition taken from the New Testament (II Thessalonians 3:10): “He who does not work, will not eat.”
According to Wikipedia: He gave the name New England to that region, and encouraged people with the comment, “Here every man may be master and owner of his owne labour and land…If he have nothing but his hands, he may…by industrie quickly grow rich.” His message attracted millions of people in the next four centuries.

I believe this was the moment of conception of America, for on this day was borne the dream, the belief, that by our own labors we may create our own success. Many of the early settlers left the aristocracy [1] of England because the system of aristocracy, and elitism [2] led to mediocrity, and was a hindrance to success, and ensured the only the very few in the ruling class, and their friends would succeed. Captain Smith singlehandedly shattered aristocracy in America.

The birth of America came almost 200 years later when General George Washington accepted the title of “President” in 1889 in preference to other options which sounded more like aristocratic titles. America ditched the aristocracy, because our founding fathers knew that when you allowed a small number of people to gain a great deal of power, and form a ruling class, they would soon start making decisions which only benefit themselves, and served to enrich themselves and stay in power. This was not the spirit of America.

Barely 400 years after Captain John Smith shattered the Aristocracy, a new ruling class has emerged: The MediCrats. The MediCrats are the medical rulers who regulate your health. The word MediCrats comes from Medi (short for medical) and crats (from the root word cratia, which is Latin for “to rule”).

When a government stops listening to the people, and passes legislation which harms the people to further its own agenda, one needs to remember these points in history. Mr. obama has appointed between 23 and 32 Czars [3], which seem to have more power than many elected officials. Czars claim the same rank of emperor. Although Captain John Smith, and President George Washington are not here to straighten out the mess we’re in, if they were, they would want us to understand that America is not a Geography, it is a Spirit, and we can not let the elitists and aristocrats in Washington with their czars take away our spirit. The administration is clearly out of control, and has lost the trust of the majority of Americans from their continuous demonstrated lack of ability to spend our money responsibly.

1 Aristocracy is defined by Wikipedia as: Aristocracy is a form of government in which a few of the most prominent citizens rule. The term is derived from the Greek aristokratia, meaning “rule of the best”.[1]
2 Elitism is defined by Wikipedia as: …Alternatively, the term elitism may be used to describe a situation in which power is concentrated in the hands of a limited number of people.
A government which passes sweeping legislation against the will of the majority of the people seems to fit the above descriptions.
3 Czar, or Tsar according to Wikipedia, is a Slavic term with Bulgarian origins which is derived from Cæsar, meant Emperor in the European mediæval sense of the term, that is, a ruler who claims the same rank as a Roman emperor, with the approval of another emperor or a supreme ecclesiastical official
