    Plutocracy, or plutarchy, is rule by the wealthy.

    Oligrachy just means rule by the few, be they wealthy or not. But these people are definitely plutocrats. They think they should have power simply because they are wealthy, they want power to retain their wealth and they think government and the people ought to serve for their wealth.

    -8.50, -7.64 Autism Speaks does not speak for me. I can speak for myself. I am a person, not a disease. I want to be respected, not "cured."

      I'd say this sums up Mr. Raes and republicans like him! What I'll never understand is why ordinary people are willing to go along with it in this day and age, when there's no excuse not to understand what's really going on, and to vote accordingly.
