While by law the U.S. is a republic, the government is actually a Corpocracy - democracy by the corporations. Corporations vote by paying politicians and political parties to put forward their agenda. The term is also endearing because of the similarity to the word "Hipocrisy".
Joe: I'm happy we live in a democracy.

Ed: Actually, the U.S. is a republic, do your homework.

DeShaun: Well, by law the U.S. is supposed to be a republic, but in actuality it is a Corpocracy - democracy by corporations.

1. Often disguised as a democracy or a constitutional monarchy, a corpocracy is when a country is run by big business, either

a. Indirectly (a common occurrence). Usually the result of pandemic corruption or gradual erosion of a nation's checks and balances on the executive branch of government; to the point where greed takes precedence over your representative's morals.

or

b. Directly (currently theoretical). There are few companies with the capital to afford starting their own direct corpocracy.

2. America's actual system of government.
1a. I highly doubt that Congress would willingly label America a corpocracy, but honesty isn't exactly their strong point.

1b. Microsoft has enough money to buy a small country, thus forming the first direct corpocracy.

2. America became a corpocracy when both the Republicans and the Democrats dropped all pretence at serving the nation's best interests; opting to take bribes from the defence industry, large oil companies, and Hollywood instead.

The style of politics we have now in America, where corporations run the "democracy" of the country.
The fiscal bailouts prove that America is now a corpocracy.

America is of the corporations, for the corporations, and by the corporations.
