Thom Hartmann: History of American Oligarchy AND HOW it ends

Thom Hartmann talks on February 3, 2021, believes that the United States is not at a functioning Democracy right now but an early stage Oligarchy. Hartmann says the danger is that oligarchies are unstable and either they flip back to Democracy’s which rarely happens or they become full-blown police states.


Hartmann believes as many Americans do, that money has to be taken out of politics. One way to do this is to change the election laws in the United States. The election campaign will last for three months. A $250,000,000 million cap would be imposed and the transition to the new administration would be no more than four to six weeks.
