    The poor.
    “Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    The same people benefit the most from nearly every aspect of society: the most privileged group in a category. When it comes to class, the wealthiest benefit the most from the government, media, education and so on. When it comes to race, white people tend to benefit the most from those areas. When it comes to gender, men tend to benefit the most from those areas. Privilege gets you benefits. Period.

    Bingo.

    Funny how that wasn't one of the choices though eh?
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    In sheer numbers, corporations/wealthy. On a "return on investment" standpoint, the poor - by a lot.
