Several fairly recent Princeton University studies indicate the majority has little to no influence on our system of law or politics. It pretty obvious to many of us, that a relatively small group of people run America and perhaps much of the Industrialized world. Bldg 7 of the World Trade Center didn’t fall down all by itself, or by an office fire, yet not even a valid investigation has been performed as to why it came down and who did it despite the plethora of evidence our own CIA and the Israel Mossad appears to have been partly involved in a pre-planned demolition. If true, as over 20,000 Architects and Engineers call for a thorough investigation, to be able to pull something off of this magnitude, one or the group would have to be very powerful. One of the Groups that is that powerful are the various central bankers and their large investors that meet internationally at the Bank of International Settlement ever two months and often show up at such meetings as the Bilderberg Conferences held annually with there meetings held in total privacy.
Studies such as this one: https://scholar.princeton.edu/sites/default/files/mgilens/files/gilens_and_page_2014_-testing_theories_of_american_politics.doc.pdf is just one of several telling us the truth about our alleged Democratic Republic. We are not a democracy, a republic, or a democratic republic. We are an oligarchy and they are obviously very powerful.
This video is a very good presentation about our system, based on those studies, and one that I recommend everyone watch. “Corruption Is Legal In America” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tu32CCA_Ig&t=185s
