“In 93 percent of House of Representatives races and 94 percent of Senate races that had been decided by mid-day Nov. 5, the candidate who spent the most money ended up winning…” Just soak that up for the time being.

Please dont leave stupid comments like democracy is the, dictatorship of the majority. Ill address this issue in my next video. Also, dont assume what my positions is and then argue that position.

  1. The class who controls surplus labour controls the ‘democracy’, whether through campaign contribution ‘investment’ or not. Representative democracy which does not control surplus labour (or controls it for a ruling minority) is not democracy.
