    our government?  Is America really controlled by special interest groups who actually select politicians who do THEIR bidding instead of the "voter's" requests?  Will America become increasingly less democratic and egalitarian in the future, subsequently becoming further aligned to the interests of special interest groups in addition to the ruling classes?

      It would seem that of yesterday with Obama's announcement on amnesty, that America is no longer a Constitutional Republic.
