The solution to this however, is not to break the law. We have yet to make a serious attempt at changing the system from within. Get involved. Back a candidate. There is only one serious candidate for president who opposes the pro-corporate slant (at the expense of the citizenry) our country has been moving toward for the past several decades. Donate and campaign. Put your money where your mouth is.

The problem you are not seeing is that this is not true. You've just demonstrated my point that you aren't even informed enough about how capitalist democracy actually works. You show that you don't really understand the history of imperialism, its relation to big corporations and what they do to people who effect 'their' profits and monopoly on government.

See: The Crisis of democracy

"Intended as an internal document. Good reading to understand the nature of rich democracies and the fact that the common people are not allowed to play a role."

The Crisis of democracy

Amazon book - The Crisis of democracy

Theories of politics - who is represented in capitalist democracy

Princeton study - Do average citizens have any effect on policy/laws?

Of course I'm aware, I have quoted and linked to those very studies on this site. I'm also aware that we're entering a unique time in American politics where the citizens have grown wise to the game. It's not coincidence that Trump and Sanders are the top candidates, to the horror of the establishment. They are disruptors who intend to disrupt the status quo. And if the establishment manages to overrule (by superdelegate, or some other means) the will of the people, expect 2020 to support even more radical candidates.
