Princeton and Northwestern prove American Democracy dead
May 4, 2014. It’s official. Two prestigious university professors and their teams looked at 1,779 policy actions taken by the US government over 21 years. What they discovered is that practically everything the federal government has done in that time has benefited wealthy special interest groups over the American people. Why? They say much of it is because lobbyists and corporations are the ones writing the nation’s laws and paying the politicians.
