    The Finn’s have figured out that a ticket tied to income causes them to be taken seriously . A $100 ticket to a min wage slave hurts to a guy that makes several million a year its less than what he pays for lunch everyday .

    A 2014 study from Princeton arrived at a chilling conclusion in regard to American democracy—it no longer exists. In answering the question “who really runs the country?” researchers Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page argue that over the past few decades America’s political system has slowly transformed from a democracy into an oligarchy, where wealthy elites and organized lobbies representing business interests now steer the direction of the country, regardless of and often completely against the will of the majority of Americans. The average citizens in comparison has little or no influence on government policy and decision making.

    Winning elections these days takes money, lots of money. It’s simply irrational to believe that those well-connected economic elites, business lobbies, and special interest political action committees that ultimately finance those elections through campaign contributions aren’t going to have a disproportionate degree of influence with the politicians they finance
