we complain about celebrities recieving no punishment, when actually our politicians are the real elite. They are above the laws that apply to us, one of the reasons they can not relate to who we are.

How are they above the law?

Or is it only because we don't hold them accountable?
Or because we let them make too many laws that only apply to us?
