Reminder: More than 90% of the US Media is controlled by just 6 companies. Having control of these means you could pretty much control the entire ‘democracy’

This info graphic is to demonstrate the power and reach the 6 media corporations have. Its an illusion of free choice.

“republic” is, to quote the American Heritage Dictionary, “A political order in which the supreme power lies in a body of citizens who are entitled to vote for officers and representatives responsible to them” — we are that. “democracy” is, “Government by the people, exercised either directly or through elected representatives” — we are that, too.

But there is no basis for saying that the United States is somehow “not a democracy, but a republic.” –
