You see what you expect to see. If you simplify it all to sweeping generalizations about "Broken! Both parties! Corruption!" that's how you will define ANY action or policy. If we want the situation to improve, we have to LOOK for and support candidates who are trying to make positive changes in the system.
I get so frustrated at people who "don't vote, because it's all rigged anyway.." and assume that if 'it' isn't going to suit them, 'it' is hopelessly bogged in money and special interests! Why not spend some time trying to actually FIND the decent folks who want a better system and **support their candidacy**? I know of many in my area ... and nationally...who are struggling within the system to better the system.
I guess it must feel better to smugly proclaim your erudite understanding of everything that isn't to your liking.
