    I would say the cure would be to stop corporations from buying politicians through campaign reform.

    I’m trying to remember the last time government made any law that actually achieved the originally advertised intent.

    How about, you know, refusing to vote for the same two parties every election. Send a message. Vote for the third-party candidate. What's the worst thing that could happen?

    Well...that's a great solution. Now just convince the majority of the voters that put the electoral college delegates in place to do that.

    We'll wait.

    While we're waiting...
