Bumper sticker seen on a car recently...Very accurate

Ours is not a democracy.
It's an auction.

Simple, but quite eloquent and, sadly, too true.

6. Actually not

 

Nope, the repig Talking Point that "we're not a Democracy, we're a Republic" hasn't been true since Lincoln penned these words 145+ years ago:

"I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed."

Abraham Lincoln, Nov. 21, 1864, letter to Col. William F. Elkins

was to choose between getting f*<ked by a blue d*ck

or getting f*<ked by a red d*ck?

What would it be if...
