Capitocracy?
What is the political system called when capitalism runs the country? Coming to grips with the idea that America as a democracy is simply an illusion...

Playing with a new page layout - so if anyone has some decent ideas on web layout - hit me up. I'd been using a standard template previously and trying to tweak it.

Democracy: Two wolves and a sheep deciding what's for dinner.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

The problem with democracy is that when you steal from Bob to give to John you will always get John's vote. (I heard that on the radio in Australia a few years ago).

When I find myself in times of trouble, Richard Dawkins comes to me, speaking words of reason, now I see, now I see.

Just seems we've been playing reverse Robin Hood lately.

I love it when people say: Higher taxes on the rich is nothing more than wealth redistribution - that's simply class warfare. We should respond, yeah, but who fired the first shot? Class warfare is happening every day and it's 99.9% of the time against the working poor.

RE: Capitocracy?
Corporations can afford effective propaganda. Fox news is the most watch news in the country and it's used to spead Republican talking points. Imagine a country where people rise up against Healthcare for the people. Americans are duped into thinking it's a fight for "Freedom". No it's not. It's about a fight for affordable Healthcare. It doesn't help that the Democrats are a bunch of pussys that wither under any kind of critisism. The left is so concerned about being percieved as fair that they stretch to create false equality between Rational & irrational. e.g. Healthcare vs Death panels. Global warming science vs a few corporate paid descenters. Some things should not have a profit motive. Health care for propI a fit is immoral.

RE: Capitocracy?
It is a Plutarchy

Oligarchy = A form of power structure in which power effectively rests with a small number of people.
Plutocracy = Is rule by the wealthy, or power provided by wealth.
Plutarchy = The combination of both Plutocracy and Oligarchy.
