“America’s claims to being a democratic society are seriously threatened,” writes the authors of this study, Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page, “ if policymaking is dominated by powerful business organizations and a small number of affluent Americans.”
Senator Rand Paul touched upon a similar note when he said at the New Hampshire Freedom Summit that Republicans cannot be the party of plutocrats and rich people. He’s making his efforts to broaden the message of the GOP, but will the rest of the party follow his act? How do we make the words, “We the People,” really mean something again?
This Princeton study from Gilens and Page isn’t far off from what most of us already believe. Our Government needs change. Charles M. Blow of The New York Times complained about voter apathy in the young and less-wealthy last week. Well, one vote doesn’t cut it. We have to do more than just vote. Since most of us aren’t spontaneously becoming billionaires overnight, the real path to being heard is getting organized and backing those who really make a difference.
