3. Yeah, I like the second option too........

But "...I don't trust our current crop of leaders to do anything to advance mankind..." That's it in a nutshell right there and that's why IMO, it's going to take a revolution rather than reform to change things. And with the way the economic drives the political (Koch whores in Congress and all), it WOULD be difficult to trust the current political system with any sort of real change to benefit the rest of us. They ARE too invested in the current system to let it go for something new, even if we voted a whole new crop in office.

Even a Congressional majority of Kshama Sawants would have a hard time really changing capitalism into socialism with the way the entrenched power structure is now.
