The Aristocrats and the Party of the People

There's an attack on the public sector being readied:
State conservative groups plan US-wide assault on education, health and tax
Conservative groups across the US are planning a co-ordinated assault against public sector rights and services in the key areas of education, healthcare, income tax, workers' compensation and the environment, documents obtained by the Guardian reveal.—The Guardian, Dec 5, 2013.
Well, you see, we had to destroy the country in order to save it.

The actors are the usual suspects—the Koch-funded State Policy Network.

This lot won't stop until there is no security for anyone outside their circle: no way to save, no reliable health care, no way to defend yourself against the whims of the wealthy, and not even the knowledge that things might be better.

If there is an organized attack, why not an organized response? ALEC and the SPN form a shadowy aristocratic party. Why is there not a party of the people?
