America’s Catch-22

How can Americans get the Money out of politics, when it is Money that makes the laws? 

The Supreme Court, not even monetarily beholden to Money, has pledged its troth to Money; they’re no help.

To get an effective third party would require a coincidence of very low probability events to get a majority elected to Congress.  And then it would require them not to be corrupted by the wiles of Washington, which are very, very persuasive.

It will take a massing of the public will unprecedented in our lifetimes to get America out of its rut.  Or in this rut we will stay for generations.
