Carter - U.S. Is no longer a Democracy

Love him or hate him he was a US President and a very smart one at that. You had better read this and let it sink in! When it hits the fan in the USA DON'T be in or anywhere near a major US city!




Former President Jimmy Carter on the sad state of affairs when it comes to our campaign finance laws, and the fact that the United States has become an oligarchy: Why Jimmy Carter Thinks The United States Isn’t A Real Democracy Anymore:
Former President Jimmy Carter believes the United States’ campaign finance system is so broken that the country is no longer a functional democracy. Appearing on the Thom Hartmann show this week, Carter said that “unlimited political bribery” is “the essence of getting the nominations for president or to elect the president.” He said the same problems are present in elections for “U.S. senators and congress members.”
Carter’s comments mirror the conclusions of a Princeton University study released last year. Author Martin Gilens found that “ordinary citizens have virtually no influence over what their government does in the United States.” Meanwhile, “economic elites and interest groups, especially those representing business, have a substantial degree of influence.”
