5. I could just bring it all down to plutocracy.
Edited on Fri Oct-04-13 07:42 AM by No Elephants
It's no accident that we are a plutocracy. That is pretty much what we were set up to be.

And, of late, we are not even a plutocracy; we are a plutonomy because government (the suffix "cracy") is nowhere near as important as the economy of the plutocrats

And that is even before TPP comes down on our heads, when the plutocrats will get to override pesky state laws. (Even the Koch's can't buy every state election.)
