America, the oligarchy

One definition of “oligarchy” is a government for the wealthy and by the wealthy for corrupt purposes.

We the people do not have control over our land, the markets, the banks or the media, which gives us only the news it wants us to hear. We are no more than serfs and modern slaves controlled by Wall Street, corporations and banks.

If the conservatives take over, we will soon be a land of freedomless, poor people surviving on the leftovers from the trickle-down theory.
