  •  Not about voting % - more about owning % (2+ / 0-)

    Seeing as the 1% own 50%+ of the $ of the country, and that due to Citizens United, $=people, then by proxy, the 1% should command that voting power they so rightly deserve.

    Apparently this is the logic whereby all the decisions in Washington are based.  Every 2-4 years, that has to be sold to the voting public just to keep them from rioting and disrupting the "order".

    •  1% own 40% and the rest of the top 20% (0+ / 0-)

      own 40%.

      The vaunted middle class has the same power in this dollarocracy as the ubber-rich.  

      They prefer to fight the bottom 80%, who have only 20% of the power, though.

      It turns out that most of those talking about "protecting the middle class" have actually been talking about protecting it from infiltration by the poor.

      This place needs a PVP server.
