Working Democracy?

We live in complex times. Lawmakers & lawyers & lobbyists muddy our community environment, giant corporate media tells us what happened maybe.

Trying to keep informed is difficult... especially for working people struggling hard to barely survive.

High taxes pay for "national business" (wars) overseas. More money flows to police & prisons. No funds remain for local communities.

People elect a candidate who then breaks repeated promises. The dazzling party platform is deliberately covered in dust.

Many potential voters gave up long ago. Other voters are wrongly turned away by election officials. Ballots are designed to confuse, and votes handled improperly. Some votes are never counted.

  dupe   +   loser   +   schmuck   +   victim

Face fact - we're swindled. You live in a   Chumpocracy.
