Many working-class citizens are struggling to obtain the basic necessities of life while the 1 percent big business investors own 50 percent of our country’s wealth.
This is bad for our economy, and it is morally wrong. It cannot be corrected because big business controls Congress, the White House and the courts through large campaign contributions.
The only solution is to change our form of government from our current plutocracy (rule by money) to a true democracy (rule by the ruled).
