1. We need a functioning democracy!
Yup, he is quite right there is no functioning democracy in America,. . when the politically powerful push their own agenda that is counter to the will of the majority the democracy is indeed very broken. Voting every now and again, when called to do so, does not a democracy make,. . esp. when the poles are so suspect,. and the corporate banksters can fund any propaganda and their agents so freely,. .
