Turned into? Has it ever not been one? Money and connections have always been huge factors in the American political system.

Agreed. I had a current events class take the place of regular History last year, and it made me realize that things today are basically just the way things used to be, and that the only difference is the way things are carried out.

It's always been about power and money, but people are realizing it more now because they have access to information, via the internet or television.

We've always been a superficial nation, but everyone's seeing it for the first time now.

Capitalism is better than the alternative.

Government and big business go hand in hand.

Capitalism is an economic system not a form of Governance.
