    If the rich elite buy politics what is the point of having political parties?

    It is known that the rich elite have funded both sides so that their needs are met regardless who wins. So what is the point of parties? Is it to divide and conquer us or do you feel political parties serve the interest of the people more so than the rich elite?

    Political parties are so we have the illusion of choice.

    They're like competing sports teams. They're a little different in their own ways, but they both really represent the same things. In this case, each team wants power.

    The Republicans are fundamentally corrupt and they have sided with the corporations, the Christians, the nationalists and the racists out of principle or a desire to get elected. The Democrats, by contrast, have been bought since these things are not part of their creed but have become so. The only reason the Democrats are even slightly progressive is because some of the progressive lobbies have bought them. Most of the Republicans do not make themselves available to the progressive lobbies.
