When we refuse to support the puppets presented to us by the plutocratic duopoly, we force them to accept alternatives. Folks that stand in line, holding their noses, intending to vote for the candidate they hate the least are domesticated stock being herded to their slaughter, unfortunately stampeding the rest of us with them. They perpetuate a system that ignores the common good.

Lobbies with deep pockets pay for the legislation that suits them (e.g. ALEC Exposed). Our government is led by shills, virtually all of our major Senators and Congressmen deserve to be ousted in disgrace. The U.S. Constitution proscribes bribery, government officials guilty of accepting bribes are supposed to lose their positions of power.

ARTICLE II Section 4
The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.

In an amazing bending of reality our leaders have managed to make bribery disappear into a fantasy realm. It no longer exists. Although bribery is the very life blood of those odious talking heads occupying the Capitol Building, finding anyone guilty of accepting bribes is like trying to capture a unicorn.

Some like Trump because they believe he isn't beholden to corporate interests. I had a friend tell me that just the other day. Even if you want to believe that, how can anyone not see that HE IS A CORPORATE INTEREST. He'll ignore the interests of other corporations while screwing the American public to suit his personal corporate interests. We consistently put foxes in charge of our hen houses, but lately we embrace wolves that don't even bother to put on their sheep's clothing.
