A reference to a Princeton Study was found in the Podesta Files and this reference, email 23756, should frighten people. The reference was to the perceived fact that the US is no longer a democracy. Jim Sandler, the recipient said it takes a study to point out the obvious. He seems to think it’s joke-worthy.
The article is from a Talking Points Memo and in it, they quote the report as saying the US is now an oligarchy.
A new study from Princeton spells bad news for American democracy—namely, that it no longer exists.
Asking “[w]ho really rules?” researchers Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page argues that over the past few decades America’s political system has slowly transformed from a democracy into an oligarchy, where wealthy elites wield most power.
Average Americans, the masses have little to say in US government policy the research says.
“The central point that emerges from our research is that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on U.S. government policy,” they write, “while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence.”
The article states that it has been a long-term trend since the 1980s but people didn’t notice the slow incremental changes and think mistakenly that they control some decisions.
“Ordinary citizens,” they write, “might often be observed to ‘win’ (that is, to get their preferred policy outcomes) even if they had no independent effect whatsoever on policy making, if elites (with whom they often agree) actually prevail.”
That is another reason to vote for Trump and not the status quo candidate. It is our last chance. You can see why the establishment or oligarchy is railing against Trump who threatens to upset their rule.
There is another somewhat interesting email we thought we’d include as it seems relevant. This is what the elite thinks of us.
Middle Class Americans are equivalent to a staph infection and are can also be called Middle American Radicals or MARS according to an Wikileaks email 24943, found in the Podesta Files. We’re all in this basket if we support Trump.
Democrats are bigots who put people in categories, sometimes in food groups. They never see the distinct individual.
Hillary’s former Chief of Staff, Tamara Luzzatto, sent the article linked below to a host of people in bed with Team Clinton and described Middle Class Americans as a staph infection.
