The realm of meta-politics (beneath the radar of constitutions and laws), has always been where all the action is.
This is the land of the elites, national and international. It's also the land of organized crime. And it's the land where the cancerous Nazi Party of WW2 has been in remission. Bed fellows all!
There are two distinct social/financial realities on this planet: (1.) the public establishment politics one we wake up to in the morning and (2.) the "invisible" one of meta-politics which plays the public one like a game of monopoly (literally and otherwise).
The public one is the realm of establishment politics, in which the Democratic Party has morphed into the Republican Party (e.g., Nancy Republican Pelosi & Harry Republican Reid -- our Democratic "leaders"). In short, all these Judas congressional Democrats whose middle initial is R, for Republican, and where exceptions (Godspeed to them) simply prove the rule.
Hence, not much action here since the elites have succeeded in transforming America into a ONE party system (in spite of the efforts of passionate FDR liberals who are still fighting the good fight).
Note that in this set up, liberals & progressive are spinning in the public wind. We used to be the base of the Democratic Party, but the Democratic Party has be gobbled up by DLC, beltway Democrats, i.e., traitors and hog troughers to the max. This is the land of Carvilles and Clintons and these people have sold the soul of the Democratic Party to the elites.
And speaking of Clintons, have you every seen anyone try so hard to “become” an elite? Forget it Bill, they’re never going to accept you into that “old money”, less than one percent elite fraternity no matter how much you suck up to Daddy Bush.
The paralyzing tragedy is that unless and until the public world discovers this infinitely secret meta-political world, we will always be putting the emPHAsis on the wrong syLLAble (as an old debate coach of mine liked to put it).
And what does this mean? Simple, it means no one gets a free pass from the rule of law and that constitutions were made to apply to EVERYONE. But since America's elites, etc., live like literal Greek Gods, how can we drag them down from their meta-political clouds to rule of law Earth with all the rest of us?
