Does the US seem like it's ruled by a few super wealthy people while the masses are left to fend for themselves? It does to me. It looks like democracy (specifically voting and electing) is just an illusion to make us think we live in a free society.
Politicians and corporations have most of the money, while the average person either has to work multiple jobs to make ends meet or go to overpriced colleges and universities to get a shot at getting one or two good jobs. Politicians and corporations are all the same: they're all ridiculously wealthy and don't give two shits and a fuck about the 300 million regular people. All they care about is either money or votes.
The income inequality in this country is too fucking massive to write off as mere coincidence.
