All of the lobbyists have a piece of the pie and have their hands on the major media networks. The Media is used to promote lobbyist interests. Weapons Industries, Pharmaceutical Industries, Private Prison industries....you name it ,they are involved in propping up their chosen candidates to win elections by ways of controlling public opinion and elections by mass influence. Weapons,Drugs, Private Prisons,and prohibition and perpetuating laws to increase incarcerations earns alot of money for the big fat cats who run this country. And those guys are in bed with the big bankers.It is a planned market....and only the planners make the money.
