  •  well, you have it partly right... (0+ / 0-)
    Their entire agenda has always been antithetical to a functioning, representative democracy.
    It' just that they think a large number of people in this country don't deserve representation (or a vote).

    In some respects, they want the Founders' America back, where women and people of any shade other than "pasty white" aren't really represented because they have no vote.

    So the fights in Congress would be...
    "should we pay 2% or 3% in taxes?"
    "should we pay our employees $2.00/hr. or $3.00 per hour?"
    "should corporations get ONE vote or proportional votes depending on their averaged annual profit?"
    "should pensions be cut 80% or eliminated altogether?"

    Oh, fuck, let's cut to the chase...
    "should we bomb Iran this week or next?"
