When Donald Trump complained about our 'rigged system' he wasn't referring to the bigger (crooked) picture:
Morally Deformed Power Elite Strategies Against the People (sans Democracy)
"By dividing the voter through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting for questions of no importance. It is thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished." - American Bankers Association, 1924
Is this a reference to the secretly planned and sneakily implemented central banking Federal Reserve System?
"It is enough that the people know there was an election. It's not the votes that count, it's WHO counts the votes. It doesn't matter who the people vote for; they always vote for us." - Joseph Stalin
Well, thanks, Joe, for that clarification. And though the phrase may be bandied about by US politicians and their backers of a certain autocratic persuasion, I cannot and will not believe that America's Founding Fathers considered democracy to be "mob rule."
