Where I come from, a millionaire is somebody who is rich. I know that verity has been degraded by the fact that anybody who owns a house they bought in Vancouver or Toronto thirty years ago is now a millionaire.
Nevertheless, there's a case to be made against billionaires.
A billionaire is a millionaire who made a million a thousand times over.
The SCOTUS sanctified the political power of billionaires a few years back with the infamous "Citizens United" decision.
Yup, corporations are people too. You'll recall that created a bit of a flap when Mittens made that claim in the 2012 election campaign.
In reality, corporations are not in fact "people."
In reality, having billionaires and their shadow corporations fund super-PACs is not an exercise in democracy.
No, it's quite the opposite of that... it's the super-rich buying democracy.
That's a state of affairs that's working out quite well for the billionaires.
Just look around you.
But how is this state of affairs working out for you?
