  • Anyone who pays attention to history see the "poor man" win far too many court case and Congressional hearings to have ground to make such a case. Minimum Wage, social benefits and entitlements, workers benefits... That idea that only a rich rule is also contradicted by the fact the the past 2 elections, the party with the most funding lost both.

Technically almost every form of government is an oligarchy.

Um, we are a Republic. If you say a Democracy, say Indirect Democracy.

We are the United States, not 'America' either. I don't see us controlling the entire continent.

That's such a dumb thing to nitpick.

It's a Republic.

An elected oligarchy, yes, otherwise known as a Republic.
Shield says2015-01-20T19:42:04.2780018-06:00
We are a democracy in the sense that we elect an oligarchy, and thus due to that process we are a Republic.

Once we abolish the Electoral College, we will be a democracy.

I've heard it's referred to as a constitutional republic.

America is technically a republic.

Sort of Democratic-Olygarchy with an un-direct democracy styled system. There is democracy, but a few have to much power. The US has to decentralise. And every form of government isnt olygarchic. Direct democracy, Anarchism, Majority dictatorship... Arent.

The Oligarchy, aka the 1%. Bernie Sanders is right. It is not OUR world while others own it and run it. Learn what you need to know. They have had control of our world for thousands of years!
