Yes, but how do the wealthy elites wield their power in government -- and thus usurp the power of the People?  Is it the representatives who are to blame for handing the keys of our government of, by, and for the People, over to the wealthy elites?  Is it the Court?  Both?

Is there a source or access point where wealth infests government?

 @Admiral America The Founders provided US with a) Article III Section 2 (the Exceptions Clause) and the 11th Amendment to check the Court, b) judicial review to check the legislative and executive branches (subject to Art III §2 and the 11th), and with c) a "Republican Form of Government" so that We the People would forever have a check on the representatives entrusted with OUR power - every election cycle.   

 

So, where did things go wrong?  Is it fair to blame the Founders, or the People?
