This isn’t a democracy, this is Capitalism! (They are different in case people don’t know)
I have been finding that big business and corporations are now running things, and gov’t (although of the people and for the people) is falling neatly into their silver lined pockets (effectively silencing our votes).
It’s really sad to think that some many millions of people can be held hostage to the rules of some 1000’s of people.

I just watched Capitalism: A Love Story by Michael Moore last night, and with some things he is spot on.
1% of the world owns 99% of the wealth of this planet…anyone else see an inherent problem there? How good of a society can come from this imbalanced sharing of wealth? This inequity is making an irony out of the West, the richest, and poorest, country at the same time.
Companies function like dictatorships, not like democracies…and companies are moving politics in this direction as well (money may be stronger than a vote).
People do not know they are losing their freedoms and rights for the sake of corporation’s lifestyle.
I have come to thoroughly believe, like Sodom, Capitalism as a system is thoroughly ‘evil’ (forgets the poor and needy).
