A few weeks ago, I argued that America had become an oligarchy, run by the rich.
A recent study by Princeton confirms both of my points — that our government is now run by and for the very rich, and this has been happening since Reagan drastically reduced taxes on the 1% and got rid of regulations that prevented the kind of abuses that have led to the wealth in our country being divided in a way it hasn’t been in a hundred years.
We can fix this. We outnumber them. We can outvote them all.
But this won’t happen until we make it happen. And that means telling both parties that we won’t put up with it any more.
