Do our elections stink because of corrupt campaign financing?

1. Billionaires and large corporations flood their favorite politicians with money (known as bribes in the old days) to get them elected and change laws to favor those billionaires and large corporations. 2. The party base (think GOP) gets stagnant wages and no voice in DC while a handful get rich. They vote for an outsider like Trump even though he is unfit. 3. The ruling class floods its insider candidate (think Clinton) with enormous sums of more money to keep their White House. 4. End result: We as a country dislike both candidates. Agree or disagree?

    Ken, I agree with much of what you say. It's corruption and collusion of a ruling elite that has all of the wealth and political power.

    Their wealth and power keep rising while the rest of us have stagnating incomes and little say over government.
