A Mockery of Democracy: It's a Wealthy World After All


                                        Good Day World!

It's time for the majority of Americans to admit that the wealthy one percent of this country rule. It's a dirty little open-secret about our democracy, while our country still professes equal justice for all.

They've given corporations the same rights as humans (See Citizens United) and live at a different strata level than the average American.

We keep seeing evidence of the wealthy's tentacles throughout our society.

The most recent example is the wealthy families who were caught cheating to get their already privileged children placed in prestigious colleges.

The FBI is calling the college scandal the biggest admissions scam ever prosecuted in the United States. And get this, this scandal is just the tip of the iceberg authorities assert.

In yet another recent example, the public was outraged to hear how easily Paul Manafort got off in his first trial where he could have been sentenced to 20 years in prison and instead only got 47 months.

When Manafort went to court the second time yesterday, he was once again given a lighter sentence than everyone expected considering his crimes.

The topper on this farce is Trump, who experts agree, will pardon Manafort before he leaves office.

Couple that with the Trump's wealthy minions in key government positions, and we have a mockery of democracy.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
