America, after a 225-year experiment with relative freedom, is morphing back into a grim colony. "The empire" has no king, no permanent kingpin, nor evinces widespread controls over all sorts of majority behavior.
If the Founding Fathers saw what the United States has become, they would be devastated. Poverty, income inequality, suppression of speaking ones mind, crime, war, and oligarch like behaviors all make up this new U.S. It is far from being the democracy it was created as.
Democracy is a government governed by the people and many citizens believe this is still how the United States is running. But in today’s society, unfortunately, we are living in a country controlled by the wealthy. People need to join together to change this.
The citizens of Nebraska used their democratic process to create a socialized, public-owned, citizen-governed utility company. If Nebraska did it, then the rest of America should too and end the concentration of private power companies.
Just because you do not necessarily agree with what the government does and the laws and bills they pass, does not mean you are disloyal to your country. The government is supposed to be there to protect the citizens, but lately the one percenters and corporate giants have government's attention.
The current trade deals being talked about in the U.S. is an ugly reality that American democracy no longer exists. The American government is loyal solely to giant corporations and their wealthy capitalist owners who so easily influence legislative decisions.
