Oligarchy Countries – Who are they? Has the United States Joined Them?
Which Countries are Oligarchy’s?
Oligarchy countries include Russia, China, and Saudi Arabia. Here’s the top 6, why they’re oligarchies, who’s involved, and how they got that way.
This article (source listed above) outlines countries that are Oligarchy’s.
Oligarchy Defined: It is a small group of people having control of a country, organization or institution.
The United States is no longer a Federal Republic, so you can add it to the lists of Oligarchy Countries. Here is why:
- You have 435 representatives in the Federal Government representing 323.1 Million (2016 est).
- California has 120 representatives – representing 40 million. (worst state example)
This is a government-run by a small group of people. Our forefathers who made the United States a Federal Republic outlined representation in the Constitution. The constitutional ratio was 1:30,000 – 1 Representative for 30,000 people. Based on the 2016 census a true Federal Republic under our constitution would have 10,463 members in the House of Representatives. Source: Why the Constitutional Ratios are Ignored. This fact alone says we are a true Oligarchy.
Just based on the simple facts our Federal Republic actually died years ago. The people are no longer represented. 435 members of the house can no way carry out the wishes of 323 million Americans. It is impossible.
CFR Movement (Jefferson State)
The Citizens for Fair Representation (Jefferson State Movement) in California has taken this issue to court. In California there is 120 representatives in State Government for 40 Million People. This is by far the worst representation in the country and clearly an Oligarchy. Special Interests based on population apportionments control the states liberal leaning tendencies because cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Fresno and Sacramento control what happens. The citizens in the smaller counties have no representation. This clearly violates the 14th amendment of the constitution. The 14th amendment was ratified in 1868. Section 2 of the Amendment outlines this:
Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State. The ratio for representation being 1:30,000 as outlined in the Constitution.
It will be interesting to follow the case in California because it brings up the subject of representation. The American People have really lost sight on what a Federal Republic was supposed to be. An Oligarchy is almost a dictatorship. Look at China, Russia and Saudi Arabia. We are no different from a ruling perspective.
What makes our country different is the Constitution that the framers formed. This makes our country different because we have certain rights the countries I mentioned above do not allow. These rights are also in jeopardy because the Oligarchy Government that is in control is systematically removing each of these rights. The 2nd amendment rights are the most talked about but there is many more at stake. The 1st amendment is already being violated by big business. Employees rights are taken away as soon as they go to work. The most recent case at Google is a good example of this. Dare to speak your mind and you will be fired.
There are many people here in America that do not understand what is happening to their country. They are too busy forming racial groups (Black Lives Matter, KKK) and clashing in demonstrations that they have lost sight of where our country is going. Hate and LGBT – Transgender issues seem to be more important that proper representation. Trashing our Historical artifacts like Confederate statues just removes them from memory. If we forget our history we are bound to repeat it.
So Trumps “Make America Great Again” speech does not really mean much. America will never be great until the people regain control of the Oligarchy and turn us back into a Representative Federal Republic. Until that happens (which won’t happen in my lifetime) the country is doomed to move back into dark times. The Civil war was fought about slavery and 620,000 people died. That was when our country was much less populous. The next Civil war (if we don’t change our path) will be fought to eliminate the control of the Oligarchy. Millions will die. The United States was founded on Freedom from rule from the British. Our Oligarchy will be the next fight – a fight for freedom and equal representation. To me it sounds no different then removing the British (a constitutional Monarchy).
In my opinion the United States has joined China, Russia and Saudi Arabia in its type of government. The people have been silenced by the wealthy. The people have been silenced by special interests. The 323 million people cannot be heard by 435 representatives in Washington DC. The 40 Million people here in California cannot be heard by 120 representatives. A Federal Republic only works with the proper representation.
It is time to restore the Constitutional representation formula of 1:30,000. This will create a huge government, but the people would be properly represented in every corner of this country. The country would not be controlled by the coastal cities on the East and West Coasts. Everyone would have a voice in government. The way things get done in government would not change much. We would still have 2 Senators for Each state, however the House would have over 10,000 representatives. The framers rules still apply. It would just be many more voices shaping our country and would allow common folk back into government.
Based on what I just told you are we a Federal Republic or Oligarchy?
