Both Rep. (Vt-I) Bernie Sanders and Activist/Linguist Noam Chomsky have called us both of these terms on and off.
We see how they explain where we are today. We are not quite the ‘oligarchy’ that Russia became after the Soviet Union’s demise, but we are essentially the same in practice.
As we (Polls aside) all feel to an extent, admittedly or not, that we have lost our freedom, democracy, call it what you will, in this Nation today. Be you Tea Party, Libertarian (modern version), Liberal, Leftist, Democrat or Republican… Our voting record on ‘off’ years is 25 %…this should shock us!…
What I have said so far, is pretty non partisan…something we can for the most part, all agree on ….
we feel that someone else is in control of our government..
