Doesn't work that way in my neck of the woods.

In order to get on - you have to run a campaign and be elected at a public election, held once every four years.

If you get that far, you're on a committee with about 10-20 others, all of them neocons.

But good luck getting on.

If you don't already belong to their social circles, amazingly, you don't get many votes in PUBLIC elections.

Anyhow, it isn't an empty shell to take over here.

It's a well oiled machine that intends to crush all opposition.
