And what have WE done about it? Nothing.
We dont deserve better. We are not ready for change. We are not READY to fight the establishment.
Can we be honest about that and START to change US? ...at least before asking others to change things for us?
Cant we see NO ONE is really a champion of the people. That ALL are working within a system not meant to empower a single average slob.
They know the nature and dynamic of power in the US, all of them. NONE are asking to change that. NONE. An average american would ask for that, 99% of people would agree that the whole electoral college is unsuited to serve us anymore.

It's the worst system of government but still way better than all the other kinds. The method and means of change are important. People need to use the tools of what is far from a perfect system but the best created in human history to get the government they want. Your vote has power, use it and try to inform yourself the best you can before using that power. All the money in the world can only influence you if you let it.
