American Democracy is Gone According to University Study

Has America ceased to be a democratic republic?  A joint study by Princeton and Northwestern universities suggests the days of republican democracy are over, and that America is now an oligarchy.

The researchers looked at 1,800 American policies instituted by politicians between 1981 and 2002.  “Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups and Average Citizens” showed what many of us have suspected: policies come more from special interest groups representing the rich than from the American people.

    This is very sad

    Oh dear Alden, I can’t believe it’s gone. We need to open people’s minds to helping and loving each other more. It can be done!

  3. Pet Girl says:

    It can’t be true! We have to get America back to the people!

  4. Usually I don’t get in political discussions but I will this time. It’s been this way as long as I remember. The Democrats and the Republicans control everything and keep making more laws. Politics shouldn’t be just black and white! That’s why conservatives and liberals are both turning to the Libertarian Party. We believe there are too many laws and not enough freedom!

    Why do we need government really? Why can’t people just work together in harmony?

  6. Tom T. Trucker says:

    If you don’t like it change it. If they fight you changing fight back. Check the second admendment buds. They can take away my rights from my cold, dead hands. But I’ll gun them down first.

  7. BibleGuy says:

    But God does not approve of democracy. God wants royalty to rule, and wants there to be lots of poor people.

    Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him? (James 2:5)

    Bye bye
    Miss American pie
    Drove my Chevy
    to the levy
    But the levy was dry
