5. It's also hard because Wall Street and other nefarious interests also buy off Democratic politicians
They are successful in many cases. People see politicians on both sides protecting Wall Street and the 1%. They see those special interests donate handsomely to both Democratic and Republicans candidates. People then see those same politicians fighting for Wall Street and the 1% when they get elected.

Why are the politicians fighting for Wall Street? Because they've essentially been purchased by those specials interests via campaign contributions and other methods.

The relationship between the politicians and Wall Street special interests is very similar to the relationship between a prostitute and her John. One pays and the other performs services.

People see this and they get discouraged.
