    I'm afraid you're probably more correct then I was. And behind that party are the multinationals. If you listen to Trump, he wants to structure and transform the government into a company.

    Yes, but freedom of speech and democracy are two different things. And freedom of speech is relative. The mainstream media certainly does not allow all opinions. And how democratic is a country if you only have the choice between 2 parties ?
