Last year, Princeton released a shocking study on the nature of American politics. After studying the beliefs of the average American for over 20 years, they found that the policies supported by wealthy interests were much more likely to result in real world legislation, while the beliefs of average and lower-income earners had no significant influence on public policy.

They concluded that the United States is neither a Republic, nor a democracy. Our country is an oligarchy, with a tiny financial elite calling the shots, irrespective of the wishes of the average American.

It didn’t happen overnight. It took many years of neglect for our liberties to be given away so casually for a promise of security from the politicians. The tragic part is that the more security was promised — physical and economic — the less liberty was protected.
