It is clear that the American system of elections, campaign and politics is riddled with big money players who have the power to buy out politicians by backing them and getting them in office to serve their own interests over time.

With that kind of power and that almost bottomless pit of money, there is nothing they can’t do to get their pieces of the chess board into position. That is what should be our main concern, making sure that the people who are elected aren’t just pawns/puppets.

The main strategy here is to get to the people to protest and fight back against this kind of system that threatens the integrity of our government.
