Two big stories hit the internet today. The first one is how corporations, special interest groups and, well connected individuals are manipulating the political scene.
The following study from professors from Princeton and Northwestern Universities on “Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens” is getting some attention. It asks, “Who governs? Who really rules? To what extent is the broad body of U.S. citizens sovereign, semi-sovereign, or largely powerless?”
“The study’s findings align with recent trends, where corporate elites have aggressively pursued pro-amnesty policies despite the fact that, according to the most recent Reuters poll, 70% of Americans believe illegal immigrants ‘threaten traditional U.S. beliefs and customs,’ and 63% believe ‘immigrants place a burden on the economy.’”
The same day the above article appeared about the study, another article, unrelated to the first one, proves the point. While the media have been focused on the suicide of liberal comedic icon Robin Williams, news is coming out on how the Hollywood elite are pumping money into Liberal Democrat campaigns. Who are they?
