You’ve Got to be Good

Whither Democracy?

The present-day US is an oligarchy, no longer a democracy, The vast majority of citizens want transparent government, fair taxes, affordable health care, action on climate change, reasonable gun control and clear labeling of genetically modified foods. The will of the people, however, is consistently overruled by corporate money. America labors under the infamous 2010 Supreme Court “Citizens United” ruling that “Corporations are People” and “Money is Speech”. As a result, members of Congress spend most of their time fundraising, and “we, the people” no longer matter. Rule by the “1%” has brought us to an absurd level of wealth inequality, We must correct inequitable tax laws to rescue our cities from bankruptcy and our citizens from poverty. Reclaiming our democracy is a critical step in transforming America into a just, prosperous and sustainable society.
