Democracy is a vague euphemism for Americanism, meaning, the Anglo-American form of government; A loosely-defined expression meaning “The American Way”. We may claim government “of the people, by the people, for the people”, but in fact we are ruled by a government made up of our “legal representatives” who were appointed by the mass media and voted into office with the help of money from lobbyists, corporations and political action committees. Except for the few states that allow referenda, voters have no direct say in legislative decisions.

Capitalism DOES NOT equal democracy
