    Would the elite 1% settle for a president that nationalizes industry, wants to raise taxes even more, not follow the constitution . . .?

    I'd imagine that if there ever was a Mitterand style candidate for president in the US corporations would use their massive political leverage to assault him and his credibility. Even still the people would have a vote.

    You, sir, are confused, and you only look at part of the picture. To say '.........the people still have a vote' shows a certain level of understanding that does not jive with 'corporations would use their leverage to ....' The whole point of your statement about corporations is to show that (average) citizens are spoon fed candidates and thus their vote is, to an extent, predetermined. Is that not your contention?

    I dont think anything is predetermined or destiny. People have "free will" and can vote for the candidate of their choice. People are easily influenced of course, especially when they fail to think things through, and many voters vote without informing themselves.

    Nothing new, those that have the gold, make the rules. Many companies spend a lot of money on marketing to sell their products/services because it works. Many companies spend a lot of money on politicians for the same reason.

    The key is to read between the lines, as the saying goes.

    There are subliminal messages between the lines.

    My favorite quote:
    "Many Democrats in Tennessee knew nothing about any of the candidates in the race, so they voted for the person at the top of the ticket," ....and since we don't like the winner, and you're uneducated and unsophisticated, your votes have no value Lol. Classic.

    was reading that story earlier.....and the 1 thought kept running through my mind

    they refuse to support this candidate in any way shape or form..... including monetarily......... but I bet they will continue to raise funds in Tenn. under the premise of winning that senate seat

    theyll just use that money for junkets and other purposes not related to the election

    if I were this candidate I would make it perfectly clear to the people of Tenn. that they should make all donations directly to his campaign fund and not to the Dem party

    Well when the Democratic party pushes rhetoric that can only appeal to low information voters, I suppose you reap what you sow.

    Hmm, should I take your word for it or that of the Tennessee Democratic Party itself, that stated "Many Democrats in Tennessee knew nothing about any of the candidates in the race, so they voted for the person at the top of the ticket."

    Guess Who's Profiting Most From Super PACs? | Politics News | Rolling Stone

    "In essence, broadcasters are now profiteering from a vicious circle of corruption: Politicians are beholden to big donors because campaigns are so expensive, and campaigns are so expensive because they're fought through television ads. The more cash that chases limited airtime, the more the ads will cost, and the more politicians must lean on deep-pocketed patrons. In short, the dirtier the system, the better for the bottom line at TV stations and cable systems. According to an analysis by Moody's, political ads are expected to account for as much as seven cents of every dollar broadcasters earn over the full two-year election cycle for 2012.

    The influx of political cash also means that TV news divisions have what Allison calls a "huge conflict of interest" when it comes to reporting on campaign finance. The profit motive stifles critical coverage of top donors and meaningful reforms, such as public financing of elections.

    "Broadcasters have an incentive not to see the system changed," he says."

    I read a article that in Japan, if a child is born in a area near Tokyo with parent that earn more than 10000 USD annually, they have a significantly higher chance of becoming powerful/ successful than others.

    So my guess is the same for the U.S. too.
    It is all about where you are and how much you earn.
