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.

First Columbia took on their drug lords, now they're taking on their billionaires...why can't we?

America’s billionaires are driving this nation’s poverty epidemic. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

As we speak, working-class Americans are getting screwed over by policies that favor the wealthy elite, and leave everyone else in the dust. As a result, more and more Americans are living in poverty.
