"When billionaires supplant political parties, candidates are beholden directly to the billionaires. And if and when those candidates win election, the billionaires will be completely in charge."
Professors conduct a 10 year study and conclude that Democracy is dead in America, that the U.S. is controlled by a rich and powerful group of elites.

Don't believe the lies. The USA is a center-left nation on virtually every issue

Big money's take over of our democracy has never been more blatant.
