Most American citizens think the United States is a Democracy. It is not true any more. Today, the United States is ruled by the rich and falls within the category of being a plutocracy or ruled by rich individuals and corporations.
A rich have the money to pay for political influence and resulting policies that ensure they keep their wealth and gain more wealth and power. That is, if they calculate and plot accurately toward that end and they have.
The dark slide of the United States from being a democracy to being a plutocracy really was propelled by the utter incompetence of the US “Supreme” Court decision brought to the court by Citizens United vs Federal Elections Commission.
Citizens United is a right wing, Republican, non-profit organization with an obvious agenda to allow money to buy political power. This move resulted in the United States moving from being a Democracy to being a plutocracy. The reason for this is that money buys politicians, both Republican and Democratic. But, the current problem is that the Republicans have gamed the system way better than the Democrats.
The current status is that the right wing have stacked the “Supreme” Court with conservative agenda sycophants that seem to believe in trampling on the poor and lower classes of citizens.
