US exposed as fake democracy

Well, I'm not sure I'll have much to make fun of here anymore.  Princeton researchers have exposed the US government for the sham it is, publishing a report that says,"The US is dominated by a rich and powerful elite."

They supported it with tons of academic stats, like "Multivariate analysis indicates that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while average citizens and mass-based interest groups have little or no independent influence."

And nightmarish numbers like, USA elites get their policies enacted 18% to 45% of the time, even when the majority of Americans disagree with them. So this small percent can make a law happen even if 85% of the country is against it.  So much for "one man, one vote."

Now that everyone knows our masses are ruled by the monied elites, how can I be ironic about US "Democracy?"

Well, this article was only published by the BBC, so perhaps most Americans still don't know.  So maybe Liberal Propaganda will still have a market after all!

Thanks, American Oligarchy & your carefully-controlled media!
