You haven't got democracy when an elected body can order troops to open fire on their own people who are protesting legally! ... When a government can't do that because they know the order wouldn't be obeyed ...then you might have democracy.... Until then it's a money top heavy sham....total BS!
PETITION: No more secret money in politics! Tell the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to require that all publicly traded corporations disclose their campaign spending to the public.

With the Presidential election right around the corner, money is flooding the American political system like never before. Super-PACs, billionaire bankrollers, and shadowy nonprofits are able to transfer huge, undisclosed sums of money to their favored candidates, ensuring that the interests of a few wealthy individuals eclipse those of average citizens.
We’re tired of secret corporate money and corruption swaying election results. Regardless of the Supreme Court’s ruling in 2010 that allows corporations to spend unlimited amounts on political campaigns, as the SEC you have the power to curb such spending. You can issue a rule requiring corporations to fully reveal to shareholders and the public the amount spent on politics and which candidates are being promoted or attacked. In the interest of full disclosure, the SEC should also post all political spending on its website. Without these rules in place, our political process will continue to lack the transparency of a true democracy.
You have a choice, you either have democracy, or you let the winner be decided by money, but you cannot have both. They are mutually exclusive.
So-called `Financial Polities' and the influential rich in the USA (the forces behind those powerful PAC's) should be eternally cognizant of the fact that their hold on American politics has deep repercussions in the lives of people worldwide.
