Looks like we hit the nail on the head! This new study confirms that the American people (formerly known as American citizens), have virtually ZERO impact on the determination of public policy. Like the Soles Of Passion’s song says; “Here In The B Sector, We Have All The Debt, We Pay All The Taxes, We Have No Control, Heaven Help Us All”. Welcome to the wake up call everyone. “Escape From Jurisdiction B” just may be more like our reality, than a quasi-fictional tale.

So, let me get this right, if there is a JURISDICTION B, where all of the common folk live, work, pay taxes and die. Then there must also be a JURISDICTION A, where all of the elite live, party, frolic and gorge themselves at the expense of those who toil in the B sector. And of course the elite in Jurisdiction A make public policy, and then give WAIVERS and EXEMPT themselves and their chornies, from the very laws they pass that the folks in the B Sector MUST live by.
Here are some quotes from this EYE OPENING Breitbart article;
“A startling new political science study concludes that corporate interests and mega wealthy individuals control U.S. policy to such a degree that “the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.”
“Noted American University Historian Allan J. Lichtman, who highlighted the piece in a Tuesday article published in The Hill, calls Gilens and Page’s research “shattering” and says their scholarship “should be a loud wake-up call to the vast majority of Americans who are bypassed by their government.”

Lichtman, who highlighted the piece in a Tuesday article published in The Hill, calls Gilens and Page’s research “shattering” and says their scholarship “should be a loud wake-up call to the vast majority of Americans who are bypassed by their government.”
The solution, say the scholars, is a reinvigorated and engaged electorate.
“If policymaking is dominated by powerful business organizations and a small number of affluent Americans, then America’s claims to being a democratic society are seriously threatened,” conclude Gilens and Page. ”
