2016 election - It’s the corruption, stupid

by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD June 21, 2015
There is a potential winning coalition in America, one including Democrats and Republicans, men and women, and all racial and ethnic groups, who believe in one simple proposition - honest, representative government.
We do not have either.
What we do have is a political-media system representing the interests of an oligarchy, a form of government in which all power is vested in a dominant class.  It is composed of financiers and their political and media whores, who finance their avarice by using the tax revenues squeezed from hard-working Americans as a personal hedge fund.
The present American political system is a "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, nor whose views are ever seriously considered except when they parallel the interests of the oligarchy.
