Just caught my eye while in the Reader
I had read many articles about this subject. I’ve not seen this on my local news channel, but it’s all over the internet.
Here are some links on what an Oligarchy is. Heck, it sounds like something you don’t want to eat. Now I AM confused . . .
WHAT IS AN OLIGARCHY?
COUNTRIES WITH AN OLIGARCHY GOVERNMENT

I wanted to know this too, since they say America The United States Of is one of those. NOTE: There is some discussion about it being an OLIGARCHY, and I don’t know what that means, but I’ll do another post on that. Then I’ll know the answer to that question.
I never new there were SOOOOO many political parties in the United States. I just thought there were three or four. Turns out there were WAY more.
These are links from my first page “300 questions about the United States”, which I decided needed to have thieir own page. There are actually very few places to find this kind of information that I searched on, but here is the short list:

From The 5,000 Year Leap—A Miracle that Changed the World
By W. Cleon Skousen
The utopian schemes of leveling [redistribution of the wealth], and a community of goods [central ownership of all the means of production and distribution], are as visionary and impracticable as those which vest all property in the Crown. [These ideas] are arbitrary, despotic, and, in our government, unconstitutional. ~Samuel Adams (p.119)
In Europe, during the days of the Founders, a popular idea was that government should take from the “haves” and give to the “have nots” so that all might be truly “equal.” However, the American Founders believed that this idea contained a huge fallacy.
Suppose a kind-hearted man saw that one of…

This entire blog is pretty darned good
Many of us look at our country today and wonder where the experiment in self-government went wrong. With the President’s approval rating as of an April 2014 Gallup poll of 43% and Congress’s approval rating hovering around 12% to 14%, more and more Americans are feeling disenfranchised and want to blame the Constitution as the source of the problems saying its outdated, needs changing or should just be eliminated altogether as some die hard socialists and communists advocate.
The truth however is not that the Constitution does not work, it’s that all too often it’s just ignored or bypassed as a matter, the politicians claim, of practicality. The passing of the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare is a good example of this bypassing of the founders intent.

There were other written documents that were involved in the founding of the United States Of America, and until I reached a ripe old age I did not even KNOW they existed! See what I mean, I really didn’t know that stuff. Here are some links to informatinon on these additional documents. I will add any valuable links to this article as I find them. Most were found from a Google search. I firmly believe these documents tell what was in the minds of those that wrote our founding documents. After all, they did write them, and they did it without a ball point pen or a computer.
The Federalist Papers are a series of 85 articles and essays written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay promoting the ratification of the United States Constitution. Seventy-seven were published serially in The Independent Journal and The New York Packet between October of 1787 and August 1788. A compilation of these and eight others, called The Federalist; or, The New Constitution, was published in two volumes in 1788 by J. and A. McLean. The series’ correct title is The Federalist; the title The Federalist Papers did not emerge until the twentieth century.

I’m reasonably sure that if you asked your average school child you would not get as detailed information. But the information is out there nonetheless. The reason these documents are so very important, is that they are the basis for our freedoms here in the United States Of America. And from what I’ve seen in the past years, humans of different sorts are whittling away at them at a rapid pace. Here are some links to informatinon on the basic documents. I will add any valuable links to this article as I find them. Most were found from a Google search.
