We are being played
They are laughing at us. With evil people like the Koch brothers and all their riches being distributed to the right influential people, we have little chance. If we allow them to continue their quest(s) democracy itself will soon be lost (especially if elections can be compromised so easily)...

1. Not true. They make their investments, we make ours.

2. And that is literally true
That they are laughing at how easy it is to slap us little people down.

5. We The People
have always been played to one degree or another and with varying results. Those who are just getting that are welcome to the party.

What we do with that understanding as a collective will determine the outcome for years to come. We can stay invested and connected to this system, or dare to venture beyond its confines and artificial boundaries by way of thought and deed. There is a revolutionary within you right now.

It is just a matter of recognizing that fact and, due to the current level of playing, begin to nurture it and let it know that the time has come and its invocation is appropriate and even, long overdue.

7. It is their system, now. They bought it. They own it in full.
And the ony way out for us is to stop participating in it.

We cannot win - they own the game.

So we have to stop playing altogether.

They can only win as long as we keep playing...
