Letter to the editor: Romney campaign shows brokenness of American democracy

Kenyon Murphy

Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign makes people think he’s like the rest of us. But in reality he’s a millionaire. How can a person, who earns in speaking fees what most people wouldn’t earn in a lifetime, say he is just like us middle-class or lower-class citizens. He claimed that he knows how the economy works; but in reality does he? In my opinion, all of these candidates have their own agenda, and they don’t work for the people. I believe that democracy is a broken system in America. Because the people we elect to office are just puppets for the interest groups and corporations. In America, if you have enough money, you can buy anyone into office, and that is the reality.
