It definitely is. They want to remain in total control of all the legislative chambers

throughout the U.S. The government - in their opinion and in their actions - is only for two purposes: enrich the wealthy and corporations, their shareholders and the members of those legislative bodies that are recipients of the donor class's monies; and to be the only members of society entitled to hold power and wield it over all others.
