Paul Chehade - The United States is a democracy or an oligarchy.
America’s political system has transformed from a democracy into an oligarchy, where power is wielded by
wealthy elites.
Our forefathers created a Constitutional Republic, was intended to be based on the Roman Republic- but the
system has clearly changed. It has been corrupted by money and people by vested interests and has become
more and more like an oligarchy.
The U.S. government does not represent the interests of the majority of the country's citizens, but is instead
ruled by those of the rich and powerful.
Today big money controlled elections by other means:
Running for office became expensive, so that those who seek office require wealthy sponsors to whom they
are then beholden.
The great majority of voters have little independent knowledge of those for whom they vote or of the issues
to be dealt with. Their judgments are, accordingly, dependent on what they learn from the mass media.
These media, in turn, are controlled by moneyed interests, and freedom of the press was really just freedom
of rich elite to control the news.
US government policies rarely align with the preferences of the majority of Americans, but do favor special
interests and lobbying organizations.

The political system as a payoff to major contributors, who want and expect and sometimes get favors for
themselves after the election’s over.
Republicans and Democrats look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves. Somebody’s
who’s already in Congress has a lot more to sell to an avid contributor than somebody who’s just a challenger
The United States is an oligarchy, no democratic country, at all. American democracy is a pretense. because
the US government does not represent the interests of the majority of the country's citizens, but is instead
ruled by those of the rich and powerful.
It violates the essence of what made America a great country in its political system.
God Bless America.
