    Though it is more of a dictatorship of the financial and military. In the depths of a recession the likes of which have not been seen since the 30's which two recipients of the taxpayers largesse have been ring fenced from the fallout and indeed plied with additional $$$. Naturally, this has been done with the aid of democratic machinery. A supine legislature has joined hands with the imperial executive to facilitate these ends. More wars,more control for Wall St,[they want your social security contributions too-please... thank you!], more for the corporate kleptocrats,[force folks to take up exorbitant health insurance]less liberty[for security reasons of course]less choice-the business party has a Democratic head and a Republican head-which head do you prefer? But Iran is turning into a 'military dictatorship'. Well remember that when you spot that over half of the United States discretionary budget goes on 'defense' spending. That during this decade despite a reduction of one third in the size of the armed forces there has been a near $300 Billion increase in the defense budget at constant 2009 dollars. P.S. You need not contact your congressmen on these matters. Simply send your queries direct to Lockheed, Raytheon or Goldman Sachs and they will instruct your representative accordingly.
