‘Politicians are literally walking billboards for giant corporations who dish out millions of dollars in campaign contributions. This year’s campaign saw massive amounts of attention paid to this fact, and the idea that U.S. elections are actually rigged.
Even if you don’t believe they’re rigged, the superdelegate process alone completely undermines democracy. Elections in the U.S. seem to be a form of entertainment, a mere distraction, more so than a real process of democracy and election. Every time elections come around, we are witnessing the illusion of democracy, and it’s not a secret.
Politics, elections, and government policy are not controlled by the politicians; they seem to be the ‘fall’ people. They too take orders, and have a ‘boss.’ Above the government sit the corporations, and above them the big banks. This is the current power structure of modern day global dominance.’
