Who rules America?
Allan J. Lichtman, by The Hill

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 8/13/2014 11:25:47 AM

A shattering new study by two political science professors has found that ordinary Americans have virtually no impact whatsoever on the making of national policy in our country. The analysts found that rich individuals and business-controlled interest groups largely shape policy outcomes in the United States. This study should be a loud wake-up call to the vast majority of Americans who are bypassed by their government. To reclaim the promise of American democracy, ordinary citizens must act positively to change the relationship between the people and our government The new study, with the jaw-clenching title of "Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites,

Comments:
A study that supports what many already know.
The elitists of both party are led like hyper jackasses chasing wads of cash being dangled in front of them by lobbyists, special interest groups, and anyone who can manage to dangle a big enough wad to get their interest.
This is what is destroying this country.

Remember Mississippi!

One is instantly suspect of a study that finds the ´rich´ (what is that?) and ´business-controlled interest groups´ are found to be the woe of our country´s existence. The terms in and of themselves are overflowing with bias and assumptions. One wouldn´t e surprised to find this ´study´ was designed to reach a predetermined conclusion which is common with ´elite´ college professors trying to influence policy and politics. Did the study look at how college professors influence politics? One seriously doubts that happened.

Politics is about money. It´s all about politicians constantly collecting money to use for the next election. Staying in office is their highest goal.

Oh, where to start:

FTA: "Politicians respond to the mass mobilization of everyday Americans as proven by the civil rights and women´s movements of the 1960s and 1970s. But no comparable movements exist today."

Uh ... TEA PARTY!!!

FTA: "Average Americans also have failed to deploy the political techniques used by elites. Political Action Committees (PACs) and super-PACs, for example, raise large sums of money to sway the outcome of any election in the United States."

No mention of the government´s illegal program to PREVENT average Americans from doing so by unleashing the IRS on any group that sounds like it might be a Tea Party group.

This article makes no real attempt to answer its own question: Who Rules America? It makes no attempt to pull back the curtain. It is just an attempt to demoralize those on the right. Don´t listen to it. They´re scared, and we know it.

As others have pointed out, a lot of us already knew the citizens ability to impact national policy was pretty much zero. And if their definition of rich individuals includes Georgo Soros, Michael Bloomberg, various Hollywood actors...yes indeed, the rich individuals do have the most influence. If business interests (business funded pacs/lobby) include Apple, Goolge etc., yes indeed, they are the true deciders of policy. Remember, rich and business interest doesn´t mean conservative, moral.

Couple of thoughts: I was under the impression America is [supposed to be] ´governed´ not ´ruled´. However, I do recall, the day B.O. was elected back in 2008, in response to a question about his lack of experience, Valerie Jarrett tartly responded: ´He´s ready to rule on day one´. Hmmmm.

The people who do studies like this must have a very narrow source for their findings.

LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED IN MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN! The people have spoken even with outside money being poured into the state by outside interest in the amount of 1/2 million dollars! Bloomberg alone donated $170,000.00.

The internet and talk radio are trumping the liberal MSM/TV. Perhaps this is the means to get rid of the corruption in our Capitol/Washington DC. Let´s trust this is
the basis to save our nation.

Like...you didn´t know that?
Holding office = running for office, which costs money. You can´t run endless misleading ads without paying for them. The donors are not going to give you money unless you rule as they expect.
So of course it is pay to play.
Why do you think Zippy spends his work time raising money?
You retain office by fooling the lo-fo voters. They will believe anything.
So swamp the airwaves.
And the perks, especially if you head a committee, are worth millions. Just consider Sen Harry Reid. He got immoderately rich "serving" the public.

This is no surprise.

Citizens have 100% control over policy. They choose not to exercise it. Money only buys votes because lofo´s use political ads on TV to make decisions. They spend about as much time thinking about the issues as the do in choosing their TP.

Sorry to suggest this but I feel that a total ban on political advertising of all kinds 20 days before an election would improve the situation. Only those that are interested in the issues will do the research and vote. The rest will continue watching sitcoms.

I think I see a fair amount of unrealistic thinking in this thread. Questions are raised about the research, whether or not we are "ruled," the power of the TEA party, etc.

Get real! We the people are getting our arses kicked out there!

Are you not bothered that a major change in campaign finance was entitled "McCain-Feingold" That Tom Steyer is pumping $100 Million + into Democrat coffers for the midterms? That the majority of the funding raised - by both parties - is pumped into the leftist MSM...to reach the "lo-fos" and get them off the couch to go vote?

The last para is the essence of the article: "If only they vote and organize, ordinary Americans can reclaim American democracy and challenge the politicians who still echo the view of old Vanderbilt that the public should be damned."

At yesterday’s tan suit presser, President Obama said a whole lot of nothing. After informing our ISIS enemies that he has no idea what he’s going to do about them - if anything - he turned his attention to Russia. It’s should be obvious to every clear-thinking man, woman, and child that, if over a thousand troops, tanks, and paratroopers drop into a foreign nation, it’s being invaded. Unfortunately, it seems that it’s not obvious to Barack Obama. ...Because the word “invasion” has magically disappeared from his vocabulary.

It may sound pedestrian to point out, but it’s critical to restate why it’s so important that our nation is called the United States of America, and not simply America. The full name emphasizes that the Founders viewed the nation not as one monolithic entity but as a union of sovereign entities delegating limited powers to a central government.To preserve this balance, the Founders put a number of checks in the U.S. Constitution, most notably creating the Senate, which allows for equal membership from every state, thus preventing states with larger populations from running roughshod over the interests of smaller

In a recent New York Times column, Paul Krugman made the assertion that “self-proclaimed libertarians deal with the problem of market failure both by pretending that it doesn’t happen and by imagining government as much worse than it really is.” But suppose we flip that around — substituting “muddle-headed progressives” for “self-proclaimed libertarians” and “government failure” for “market failure.” Compliments to Per Bylund, a research professor at the Hankamer School of Business at Baylor University, for making the necessary adjustments in a blog post at Mises. org.

Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel has filed his official challenge of the June 24 GOP primary runoff results against incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) in state court, he and his lead attorney Mitch Tyner announced Thursday. "Republicans did not elect the nominee on June 24," McDaniel said in a statement, adding that “we are excited for the opportunity for Republicans to reclaim their primary process.” "This challenge is not about the candidates,” McDaniel said. “It is about the integrity of Mississippi´s election process, and we are committed to ensuring that process is accurate and fair for future Republican candidates.”

Late last month, as members of Congress were poised to leave for their summer recess, the House Republicans’ top policy experts found themselves in a barren conference room in the Capitol’s basement, negotiating with the party’s most ardent opponents of immigration overhaul. As senior members of the Judiciary Committee looked on, the opponents — Representatives Raúl R. Labrador of Idaho, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Steve King of Iowa and Mo Brooks of Alabama — reshaped two bills to address the rush of unaccompanied children trying to enter the country illegally. Representative Michele Bachmann, Republican of Minnesota, was there, too, and she

Roger Clegg and Hans A. von Spakovsky deserve high praise for debunking the latest GOP brainchild that does nothing to help the party nationally — a Senate resolution encouraging all private-sector employers to adopt the National Football League’s “Rooney Rule” — and illustrating that “conservative” Republicans, too, can be limousine liberals. Five GOP senators — including presidential hopefuls Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, and Rob Portman — think both commercial and nonprofit enterprises should, per the NFL and Black Entertainment Television founder Robert L.

If the House makes any changes whatsoever to the immigration bill that blew up and died before Speaker John Boehner tried to bring it back to life—and then votes on those changes on Thursday evening or on Friday—it would be a violation of Boehner’s own 72-hour rule. “I proposed a 72-hour minimum time for members to read bills,” Boehner said as House minority leader on May 14, 2009. “I think it’s important that members do have a chance.” "Americans not only expect lawmakers to know what they’re voting on, they deserve to know what’s in these bills as well,” Boehner added on

On Thursday, the House GOP imploded over its border bill to solve the child-migrant crisis, pulling the legislation from the floor for lack of votes. And there, standing among the legislative wreckage, stood the proud senator from Texas, Ted Cruz. Not literally, of course. But the tea party Texan is once again smack in the middle of a House Republican debacle. With a reach as wide as his state, the freshman senator has his arm around conservative House Republicans. He has been lobbying them over Chick-fil-A and pizza to change the House bill “to end Obama’s amnesty.” By that he

Harry Enten, an analyst with FiveThirtyEight, a political website owned by ESPN, claims he can prove with charts and graphs that Republican Florida Governor Rick Scott and his Democratic challenger Charlie Crist are the most unpopular pair to face each other in a governor’s race for at least the last decade. Without even consulting the charts and graphs, few Floridians outside of Scott’s or Crist’s camp would argue with Enten. Both candidates’ favorable/unfavorable ratings are below water. Scott’s ratings have been in the unfavorable range for almost the entire three-years-plus he has been governor. He has mostly done what he ran

There has been a lot said in recent years by Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, and other conservatives about crony capitalism – or if you prefer, crony socialism, crony government, corporatism – or just plain cronyism. Whatever you call it, this conversation is increasingly vital as government grows and continues to pervert markets by picking winners and losers as a way to obtain wealth for powerful lawmakers and their fund-raisers and friends. This rampant cronyism is one of the most insidious outgrowths of a government gone wild, and has become a swirling vortex of self sustaining and systemic corruption. Thus, the focus

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slandered a group of Middle Eastern Christians who were trying to raise awareness of their struggle to avoid a genocide in the Middle East. His cynical grandstanding was rightly condemned — but he was hardly alone. Cruz agreed to speak to this group, which included bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, ostensibly out of solidarity, but took the occasion to antagonize them over their insufficient praise for Israel, then smeared them as anti-Semites before dropping the mic.

SAN DIEGO — African-American elementary students in California were chronically truant at nearly four times the rate of all students during the last school year, according to a state report released Friday. The report by the California Attorney General´s office is the first time the data has been broken down according to race and income levels. Officials say such data is needed to address the problem. Poverty and suspensions are contributing factors. Overall, more than 250,000 elementary school students missed 10 percent or more of the 2013-2014 school year or roughly 18 or more school days. The absences were highest at the kindergarten and

Check your hygiene privilege. Cabbies who smell badly are probably just oppressed folks who came directly from their terrorist training camp to the airport and didn’t have time to change. Body odour is among 52 criteria that officials at San Diego International Airport use to judge taxi drivers. Cabbies say that smacks of prejudice and discrimination. It does discriminate between cabbies who smell like an open sewer and those who don’t. It further prejudges what a good smell is.
