I think some Americans are also angry because they've realised that the American Dream that they've been sold, how if you work hard enough you will succeed and that you can go to the very top, is bollocks for 99% of the population. It's similar to the alleged Marx quote about religion: it's an opiate to keep the masses quiet and distracted.
There's a lot of Americans angry generally these days.

You see, THAT is how it is suppose to work. YOU help YOURS, I'll help MINE. I don't want to help YOUR brother, I don't even know or care about your brother, I have my own to help right here. Help should be voluntary. Help is not YOU putting a law and gun to MY head and forcing me to help YOUR brother. I quit working for da man back in 1996, swore that I would never pay another dime of income tax every again if I can help it, because I'd rather help MY OWN .. not you, not your brother, not anyone else. Keep your fingers out of my pockets and I will let you keep those fingers .. and your life.
