2. Exactly

It's that last part I'm concerned about. The oligarchs will continue to do as they do now, buy elections and even rig them to exclude voters who tend to vote for somebody other than Republican whores. Not that there aren't whore politicians among the Democrats, too, but the oligarchs almost get money back guarantee that an elected Republican will be a total whore.

A Princeton University study made the case that the US is an oligarchy, not a democracy. If it is not a democracy, then let us maintain that We, the People, owe the oligarchs' government nothing. The taxing of solar panels was passed in Oklahoma because the Koch brothers purchased it, not because the people wanted it. Therefore, it may be the law of the state of Oklahoma, but not necessarily of the people of Oklahoma.

So, yes, as a matter of fact, I am saying it is time for We, the People, to take the law into our own hands.
