10. Ds or Rs

It doesn't matter what party you are affiliated with, money talks. We keep hearing about how much the Rs are putting into super pacs and always hear that the Ds have put in much less. It doesn't matter. Money will win in the end.

The only way around this is to get out the vote EVERY election cycle, whether it's local elections or national. Without that, there is no hope for anything other than a plutocracy that says it is democratic. Most, if not all, of our senators and representatives are bought by some group. It doesn't matter if they are D or R, they are bought. That is how they accumulate wealth. Donations to their re-election campaigns are, pure and simple, bribery. We need new blood and we need it as soon as possible.
