“We the people” is more an aspiration, even a myth, rather than the existing reality. The reality is that citizens’ votes are not the primary driver of democratic rule. The nature of ruling power is determined by the elites: the tiny minority of ruling class that comprises super-rich political donors, corporate executives, Wall Street banks and highly concentrated news media.

America is not a democracy – at least not yet anyway – despite nearly 244 years of history as a modern state. It is a plutocracy run by an oligarchy. Such an observation is not a radical criticism. Former President Jimmy Carter came to the same conclusion . So did a study conducted by researchers from the prestigious US universities, Princeton and Northwestern.

It's time we the people start choosing who is going to represent us as President and on down the chain. Until now we have only been given a choice between those the Deep State has chosen who they allow the people to choose.

Take this Democrat primary as an example. Just watch how the propagandists dictate who gets the votes. Recently, they have been pushing Sneaky Pete and Amy and guess who rises up in the vote count? They have literally ignored Yang and Gabbard and guess who receives fewer votes even though if one examines their credentials better serves the masses, but because the people are not informed they are forced to vote for who they read about and hear about from the propaganda machine of the mafia-like Establishment. Bernie Sanders is presently defying them, but as the Iowa caucus travesty shows if the propaganda fails there is corruption to bail them out.

My rule of thumb is if the media pushes a candidate they are not good for we the people. Investigate those who the media is smearing and/or ignoring because they will better serve the masses hence the media is attempting to make them look "bad".

It should'a could'a been Sanders-Gabbard in 2016, but for the DNC. Gabbard would now be an odds on favorite to be the first female US president in 2020. Instead we have Trump as President of the shakiest, meanest and most powerful nation on earth. Gabbard has been pushed out of any media coverage for this (s)election. Gabbard is a threat to the Military Empire, which is all that props up our corrupt version of Plutocracy and would be offed before ever being elected. I see every possibility of state run violence if Bernie gets nominated or if Gabbard is given a fair chance at a microphone.
