42. Our reps are mostly corrupt and there's nothing that is going to change that.
As Howard Zinn has said, the most important changes have only happened when people get out there and protest and march and cause civil disobedience on a mass scale. Reps will always turn their backs on us for re-election campaign money. It's obvious that large corporations with lobbyists, large campaign contributors and the media control this country and there's nothing you can do about it unless you have the guts to hit the streets in mass protest, bring this country to a halt and be willing to go to jail over it all.
