Billionaire Barre Seid has avoided the spotlight for years until now, and he is reportedly one of the world’s three most powerful people, according to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. He has donated hundreds of millions of dollars to right-wing groups and politicians.

Money can push lawmakers to create and uphold laws regarding topics like gun control, abortion, voting rights, consumer protection, and climate change.

Seid has reportedly made a tax-avoidant donation worth $1.6 billion to a right-wing political organization named Marble Freedom Trust. The Trust is a part known as a “dark money group,” which means they can raise as much money as they want and give it out to politicians without needing to disclose activities. They can purchase politicians’ loyalty. Democracy should be equal but wealthy people are the ones with the power in decisions in this country and this is not fair,
