"The real owners are the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians, they're an irrelevancy. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don't. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They've long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the statehouses, the city halls. They've got the judges in their back pockets. And they own all the big media companies, so that they control just about all of the news and information you hear. They've got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying lobbying to get what they want.
This for the most part is the truth.
The corporations and business owners, own D.C. and those in it. Their wealth compared to the wealthiest celebrities, make these celebs appear destitute and poor.

It would be difficult to say that Oprah Winfrew with her billion dollars has no power. Wealthy celebrities exert a powerful influence on the political process. It's not rich corporate interests who are behind the wacko environmental laws that are dragging the country down. There's all sorts of pressures put on politicians. Corporate interests are just part of it.
