    Although ordinary citizens can vote in national elections, the candidates must have funding that is backed by organizations that are controlled by those with wealth. As such the choices are limited.

    Can't wait for someone to argue that they don't have too much power... Will be a real fun time.

    Of course they do... and it has been that way throughout history. Wealth and political clout tend to go hand in hand, one way or another. Especially extreme wealth, as in the billionaires.


    Like George Soros, to name one.

    This is why I truly believe money/capitalism/capital/w.e and democracy cannot co-exist, when money is used to acquire power, gain attention, etc, etc, etc..
