When all the rhetoric is cleared away, and one looks at America objectively, we see the same thing as in most the countries of the world – a tiny elite with all the power and money, and everyone else struggling just to get by. The reason is simple. The most powerful individuals and corporations have managed to bend the rules in their favor, so that the so-called democracy is rigged so that the banker always wins. It’s like a fixed fight, but one in which we can vote for whichever fighter we want. The “house” will always win, and continue to increase it’s advantage and ability to further bend the rules.
