    sold us out for Hayes Presidency. The confederacy was free to create Jim Crow & share cropping & chain gangs. America was created for white male supremacy.

    •  It happened before that when the US Constitution (5+ / 0-)

      refused to create any strong mechanism for the control of private economic power over the democratic process. Because of that original failing, slavery, private power and money, almost destroyed democracy, and Corporate money, almost did it in the Gilded Age, and Military-Technology- Industrial Money is poised to do it now.

      Its the same fight. Always has been. How much can a democracy have precedence over Private economic ambition? In our country, not much. That is why we have to fight the same devil repeatedly, although come back with different masks each time, its the same personalities who believe in their private superiority and entitlement to own everyone and everything.
