15. More concise terms you're saying that is no actual effective party working for the common person?

This is not actually breaking some news. Many of us figured that out thirty or forty years ago.
We have been told at nauseam to vote for the lesser of two evils since like forever. Well, that was done but what you now have come to observe is that estate lords and slave owners have always had a larger sway with the government than it's citizens.

The entirety of the revolutionary papers was written that way back in day because the revolutionaries knew they would need the resources of these type of people for them to succeed. Lawyerly people have always had a way of polishing over the real facts with flowery conjunctive words. It is the why and how they do what they do.

It's also important to note the whole thing was written with enough open interpretation space that would ensure things remained similar as before. This is to say, that as long as those who put in and controlled the levers of the compromised elected officials stayed in there, then they would mostly be able to do as the pleased at any rate. And that has how it has mostly been since then

Just like the good ole days back in the Roman days, more bread and circuses.
