5. Since those
routinely prosecuted for high money stakes have political clout to get legislation, law. They are naturally organized. The only other clout group organized is the legal profession that loses money and fears taking cases under this system.
Hence those lawyers try to influence Dems while the GOP can be easily just outright bought or depended upon with rigid "ideology".

Didn't these laws take place in large scale to protect creditors based in Florida and Texas? Not sure of the breadth and origin of localities doing the same to citizen actions.
