The Supporters (Clay Bennett, Chattanooga Times Free Press)

As the gap between the rich and the poor continues to widen in the United States, the nation risks falling even deeper in to a non-democratic system of governance: Plutocracy. In a plutocracy, wealthy members of society have much more say than everyone else. This system has historically led to a good deal of financial and political instability where ever it has arisen, especially as the population at large becomes increasingly isolated and victimized by its isolation from the political process.
