Carter is Right
We have moved from a Constitutional Republic
to rule by a corrupt Oligarchy
Never in their wildest dreams did the Founding Fathers want a new United States to be ruled over by a ruling class of the corrupt ultra-super rich. They created a Republic, not an oligarchy.
Unfortunately we have been going down the road to rule by Elite Authoritarianism for a number of decades.
Both Parties are Bought & Paid For
First let me say that corruption is bipartisan and as old as man himself.
That being said, since World War II there has been a massive revolution in American politics where multi-national corporate cartels have literally worked to buy and sell members of Congress. The goal is always money such as tax breaks, government contracts or open borders for cheap labor.
The mountains of raw special interest cash pouring into pockets of hand picked candidates like Jeb Bush and the Hildabeast is staggering. And believe me these groups want to be paid back for their "investment" in a candidate.
But the power of these groups is near total in Congress where they own likely 70% of each chamber.
In 2014 my California Congressional seat was targeted by both parties. Over $10,000,000 was spent with 80% plus being outside cash coming from Wall Street allies of either party.
Democracy has been turned upside down. What the local voters want has no meaning. Our candidates are being selected for us and financed by centralized Billionaire Cartels based in Washington and Wall Street.
We have competing interest: 1) the right of the people to select their own representatives and 2) the First Amendment allowing anyone to spend any amount of money on "speech" even when it is nothing more that bribery.
