When your vote means nothing, you are not represented by your representatives, or have a democracy then it always breaks down to violence and who has the biggest gun. The two party system is failing to represent “we the people”. Corruption is at an all time high because it’s a pay to play system and not a representative or democratic system of government. Even if we have a few good apples in office they can not overcome the collective efforts of all the bad apples. Our only hope for non violent representation is to demand clean elections (removing private funds from the election process) and remove lobbyist and corporate control.
