    Do you think The Rich and Major Corporations have gained more power over our government during the last 30 years? What would you support your view with?

    Yes.

    Because as we seem to embrace more issues and acts that define oligarchy, it is more becoming a socialist commons, rather than a culture ran by the people. And thus, the rich and corps, are all in the same collusion as the government itself.

    Corporations are people my friend. It's all about the money they spend.

    Yes and both parties are guilty. Many appointees go back and forth from Wall Street and Washington. Nice they can influence leglislation for their buddies. Both parties accept donations from Wall Street.

    The Rich? I'm not talking about some doctor making $500K a year. I'm talking about a George Soros on The Left or Koch Brothers on The Right.

    I'm amazed that people are so naive or indoctrinated, that anyone would answer No. Some things are pretty obvious.

    Quick Statistic: During the last 20 years, the candidate running for ANY federal political office who had the most money, won the election.


    So let me get this straight. Your position is that because the Rich and Corporations have more freedom to effect our elections, it's the Socialists fault.
