Oligarchy: America’s one-party state

by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD January 8, 2015
Oligarchy is defined as a form of government in which all power is vested in a few persons or in a dominant class or clique; government by the few.

The oligarchy is composed of the Democrat and Republican establishments, the media and the financiers, who every four years hire a President.

The political system they operate is known as "totalitarian democracy", one in which lawfully elected representatives rule a nation state whose citizens, although granted the right to vote, have little or no participation in the decision-making process of government.

The main policy of the American oligarchy is malfeasance, the performance by a public official of an act that is legally unjustified, harmful, or contrary to law.

Or as Ambrose Bierce, a 19th century political satirist, described Washington D.C. as a strife of interests masquerading as a contest of principles and the conduct of public affairs for private advantage.
How did, for example, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) manage to grow his net worth to $10 million while raising a large family, on a public official's salary, and incurring the expenses associated with maintaining two residences on opposite sides of the country?
