Are American candidate's for high office, secretly being selected by both political party's leaders, a few men only, behind closed doors?
This works to the advantage of both political parties.
It closes out competitors.
Only two political parties split the running of our US government.
Neither party's leaders cares who wins.
They decided long ago who was available and controllable.
The most powerful Democrat and Republican party leaders meet
separately behind closed doors to select our future new State and
Federal government leaders.
Because of many past moral indiscretions, selections are vetted.
Both parties solicit campaign contributions to pay for a controlled
media that can enhance candidate’s appeal to voters. Professional campaigners, run the campaigns.
Debates and Conventions allow the most popular of candidates to
campaign against one another, for a final popular selection by the
voters, and afterwards the winners head for State or Federal offices.
When those elected do well, they are returned to office through the
same processes. They all become very Wealthy, and upon their
retirement, they can sit with and become Democrat and Republican
leader's, to meet behind closed doors and select the new leaders for
Something extra I came across -- A study from 12 years ago.
Congress passes legislation for the Elite 1% - at a 45% rate.
Congress passes legislation for the rest of us, at a 18% rate.
Today we have the NSA on the table, and we may want to consider
just what will occur based upon those kind of percentages.
