The bottom line is the USA is now officially a plutocracy, and no longer a democracy.

Citizens United was really just the final stake in the heart for democracy in America.

How will this realistically work in America? We are too big to be a Monaco, and not unified enough in one religion to be a Vatican City.

Singapore? Hmmm, I don't know? Perhaps, but again, I think the US is too big and diverse to be this form of city-state plutocracy.

Gosh, I don't know why, but with this post it has FINALLY sunk in that the USA is no longer a democracy. God, its really sad.

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
