The people making their wealth from the legal system are the ones operating that corrupt, perverted system.
That is a huge conflict of interest. Politicians revel with creating laws. statutes, rules and regulations enforced by the legal system as a method of controlling We, the People. Much of that control is done to ensure an elite-class remains in power ensuring ample wealth flowing from elites and their corporate entities into the pockets of those serving the elite overlords.
Smart politicians and bureaucrats know how the scam operates and patiently await to depart office or government position to reap their legal rewards for proper behaviors. One glaring example is Obama and his entire family rewarded by this scam. Corporate USA funnels vast amounts of wealth to their lackey that served them well. All legal. What odes your one vote buy? Contempt from the elite-class overlords and their army of lackeys.
