the sixty-four trillion dollar question

The United States of America is ruled by four flavors of wealthy elites working in carefully orchestrated concert with each other. The political right constantly pushes beyond the boundaries of the Constitution and the rule of law and marginalizes liberal views further every day. The political left plays puny Colmes to the right's Hannity, and puts up a milquetoast "oh, please stop" sort of mild public protest even as it votes to enact and immunize the excesses of the right. The press does its best to convince us that we need to not fingerpoint or "play the blame game," because the important thing is not punishment for the lawbreakers, but simply to make sure these sorts of "mistakes" never happen again, a kind of sanctimonious forgiveness that is reserved only for the wealthy and influential. The three of them are financed by the plutocrats who seek to aggrandize the wealth and power of the world for themselves and are willing to eke out comparative crumbs to the other three classes to reward them for their betrayal of the American experiment and for selling out their countrymen to an ever-decreasing standard of living and less and less of the much-vaunted "liberty" upon which this nation was supposedly founded.

Can anyone tell me how it is possible to beat this system?

As long as people are willing to sit still for it, I can't see how to fix it. Every time I try to tell somebody, I get, "Oh, it's really not as bad as all that..."

I want to shake people.
