President Jimmy Carter says America, a once-free nation, is now an oligarchy, and that’s not just his opinion. It is provable, and backed up by the research of top political experts and scholars. An oligarchy is a government run by a small group of wealthy and influential people, rather than the majority. A Princeton University study, Affluence & Influence, by Martin Gilens, backs up former president Carter’s oligarchy statement about unlimited money in politics, such as allowed by Citizens United, upheld by the Supreme Court, as reported on Your News Wire.
President Jimmy Carter points to the ideal, that our government’s Constitution was based on the concept of democracy and freedom, at least as freedom and democracy were understood in the eighteenth century. Modern understanding of those may vary, but that was the overall goal. America was to be a government “by the people, of the people and for the people.” Experts are saying that is not what we have today. Carter states this in no uncertain terms.
President Jimmy Carter, who led the U.S. from 1977 to 1981, is not just making this up as he goes along. It has been well established, proved, and recorded painstakingly, as explained in the video below.
President Jimmy Carter is simply re-framing Gilen’s study, and putting it in terms that relate to the current situation. As Professor Gilens explains in the description of his book, those with money are the ones who influence politics, law making and government policy.

    This is not a Democratic or Republican issue, it is a freedom issue for everyone in our country.
