Check out this book "Gangster Capitalism: The United States and the Globalization of Organized Crime" if you want to see what really goes on behing closed government doors. {did not find the earlier link].

amazon link

The United States have a long history of protecting and sometimes even encouraging organized criminal activity. This has included the frequently criminal exploitation of indigenous peoples, African Americans, and other working peoples; the enactment of prohibitions that have fostered corruption and criminal enterprise; and the construction of a regulatory system for business that has not always considered business violations to be crimes.

The bikers, mobsters and sundry groups we view as "criminals" are nothing more than wannabes. The really organized guys are the ones that have access to political decision making.

This book should make everyone think twice about continuing to support the representative system of political decision making.
