Is the United States of America a 'Undercover Monarchy?'

    I am still trying to configure this theory so, I am just looking for different opinions right now.  Although I know that The U.S. is controlled by a hand full of wealthy people, I am hard pressed to believe that there isn't one person at the top of the (Trilateral) pyramid.

      It is more aplutograty or oligarchy, but the real definition is facism, in the Mussalini sense, corpratism, where the state controls independant corporations, now becomes revesres facism, where the corporations control the state, the end result is the same.

        Do the corporations control the state or do the people who own the corporations control the state?  A corporation is not started by nor does it run by itself.

      it's not really a theory if you're searching for evidence to support your conclusion.

      that's called "confirming bias".

        Here we go, another Webster's dictionary over here.  Okay listen.

        1. The United States declared it's independence from the British Empire yet kept there religious belief (Christianity) believe it or not American society is based on Christianity(one nation under 'God')

        2. The United States executive branch is based on the principles of the British Empire's Monarchy.  The other two branches of our government are supposed to supply checks and balances but unfortunately the constitution has been spit on for years by the Global elites who actually run our country.  I saw your little forum about Obama not needing congress approval for the (don't call it war) war in Libya, you are assuming Obama has any real power, he does not.

        3. The U.S. is a fully functioning class system similar to a Monarchy with Peasant=Lower class
        Commoner=Middle class
        Kings, Queens, and other hierarchy =Global elites and the extremely wealthy.

        Like I said before, I am trying to 'configure' my 'theory.'  So when you decide to stop unsuccessfully attempting to make yourself look intelligent, I will be happy to hear your opinion on the issue.  Trust me you do not want to go back and forth we me about politics or history.  I have seen your profile and assume that you are an intelligent person but when it comes to Ron Paul and the "Truth Movement,"  you sir are a rookie.  I am guessing you just found out about The Federal Reserve in the last few years right?  I don't know what possessed you to be under the assumption that I need to be corrected by you.   

        Your failed ego stroking attempt at correcting me:

        "it's not really a theory if you're searching for evidence to support your conclusion."

          So... you wrote that the definition of theory is:

          ": the analysis of a set of facts in their relation to one another"

          ... and yet, here you are asking for facts to prove your theory.

          See, you're doing it backwards. You need to get facts first, and THEN come up with your theory.

            Did you even look at number 2 or 6?  Of course you did, you just pointed out number 1 because it backs your statement, not wanting to admit that some of the other definitions back mine.  Context my friend....context.  tsk tsk tsk Mr. Rogers, your not being fair with the people in your neighborhood.

    Most countries are effectively oligarchies.  That is not necessarily a bad thing.

    America is run by the "status quo".

        It is not based on any specific individual. It is based on a specific action put forth by Government, which includes hundreds of individuals.

          So you think our government is actually in control of our nation, not the private Federal Reserve who issues our currency and controls our economy?

            It is Government's fault. It has been since the inception of America.

                I don't need to read a hub that says not to blame Obama. If the focus of your Hub is on the Federal Reserve Bank, then you haven't done your research of American History.

                The Federal Reserve Bank only has a small part in the problem and isn't the whole problem. Hence, why I gave you my hub. It points directly back to the beginning of America.

                  I read your hub, and although you make a few points that are accurate, some other things went over your head.  Example:

                  "You want to know why homelessness exists? Because, those people are not taking advantage of the Economy, in the manner, in which, they are suppose to. They don't possess the knowledge they need to benefit from the Economy, like they should."

                  WRONG!!!

                  After noticing that you has some information on America having British influence I am surprised to see that you did not notice that America's economic system is a complete re imaging of the British class system or the Indian Caste system9 but that is another story).  Of course people don't understand how our economy works, that's the way it is set up to run.  The founding fathers basically copied the inner working of the British Empire and made it seem as if we were doing something different, but in fact the only difference is the private Federal Reserve.  Yes, The Fed.  The bank that most people that was run by our government until recently.  Some people still don't know the truth. 

                  But I wouldn't expect you to let someone teach you a lesson, you're ego will not allow it.  That is why I read your hub regardless of how I feel about you or the title, and you simply pushed mine to the side.  Hmmm, are you afraid of me being right and you being wrong?

                    Actually, it's accurate. So much so, that if people actually knew and understood how the Economy worked, then homeless and poverty, both, would not be a problem

                  Thank you, I try.  If there is one thing I know about it's our government.  I know I come off arrogant in the forums but, my hubs are strictly business (most of the time).

    I always wounder before any election, if there are  Power Money Groups gathering and deciding who runs, what platform and which group gets control for the next 4-8 years.

    Rediculious as it sounds, it feels like it at times to me..?

    tHErEDpILL,

    You are correct.  Very few people understand who or what is running this country, or the world for that matter.

    Here is a link you might find interesting.
