    Freedom Rider: The Lie of American Democracy


    by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

    Just as most American mistakenly believe their country has the highest living standard in the world, they also swear that the U.S. is the ultimate in democracy. They also realize that the Golden Rule applies, here: those who have the gold, rule. But the contradiction does not phase them. And, largely because Americans cling to the myth of democracy rather than face the fact of plutocracy, “we know for certain that we will end up with a corporatist president who will keep our country and the world in a perpetual state of war.”

    Freedom Rider: President Bloomberg

    by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

    If the United States is going to be run for the profit of Wall Street and the super-rich, why not dispense with all the groveling intermediaries? Let the plutocrats rule, directly.

(This is the guy who told Rupert Murdock that Barack Obama is the “most arrogant” man he ever met.)
