Excessive influence of wealth wrecks Democracy

 There is  no democracy when wealthy corporations and ultra rich individuals exercise as much influence as they do now. The Supreme Court, now tilted to the insane Right, is steadily destroying the spirit of one vote per person by advancing the influence of the wealthiest. 

Those that think we have a democratic system are delusional.  We are now a plutocracy and orderly change back to the democracy we thought we had is not longer possible. Those in power will not give up their overwhelming influence willingly or peacefully and will continue to use the manipulations possible with mass media and market controls to ensure huge numbers of citizens always ask the wrong questions and are moved by more compelling emotion invoking non issues than they are by their own best interests.  No one is more pathetic than a poor, working or middle class conservative Republican whose political choices are driven by fear and hatred of gays, abortion, gun control advocates,  immigrants, racism and so on....
