An oligarchy since people started trading silver bits for stuff. Read Sumerian history. The very beginning, just like it is now.

The word Jimmy Carter was looking for is plutocracy.

From Carter's recent interview with Oprah:

When Oprah and Carter sat down for the interview, which was taped a few weeks before the former president announced he has melanoma, Oprah asked her guest a pointed question relating to the current state of politics: Would he be able to become president today?

"Absolutely not," Carter said immediately.

A big reason comes down to money and how much it takes to fund a successful campaign. "There's no way now for you to get a Democratic or Republican nomination without being able to raise $200 or $300 million, or more," he explained. "I would not be inclined to do that, and I would not be capable of doing it."

What's more, he feels that the political system has since warped into something completely unrecognizable.

The interview will air on OWN Sept. 27, at 7:00. I hope to tune in to hear other insights from this very bright and honest man.

Sorry to tell you that, Bernie does not fit the profile of the Lobbyist loving super pac creeps we usually have in the R & D presidential candidate slots.

Go Bernie!


This is why I enjoy the "Great Game" and grand conspiracies of politics!

Of course Bernie is different. This time, real change is gonna happen!

I have all the "hope" in the world for the "change".

Anyone who is a real threat to the establishment, won't win..
