America is an Oligarchy

When I look at the stars on the American flag, I rejoice that the people may celebrate and even reward its best and brightest, whilst not forgetting the meek and the poor... at least within its own borders.

The challenge of the age is of course to extrapolate the greatness of the Greek model, democracy, without forgetting that 'citizens' were in fact a very small group of titularies, mainly men and certainly not the working class majority.

So if the privileged 1% which is America's best and brightest make policy by secret or open market voting, is it wrong to hope and pray that such greatness might in fact be made freely available to all earthians?
