The Most un-Democratic Thing in the World

In this Republic could there be a more un-democratic thing than the notion that money is speech?  By granting personhood to corporations, our Supreme Court has thrust us into the world of George Orwell - some are more equal than others.  Can the voice of the people ever rise above the din of big business?  Not likely.

I suppose if your vision of utopia is some kind of theocratic plutocracy, like kingdoms of old, then it's all hunky-dory.

As any 'well-informed' Republican will stress, "This is not a democracy, it's a republic!"

God, Guns and money!
