it is just stepping outside of an ideological bubble to acknowledge the world as it is and not the world as you would prefer it to be.
Corruption is always part of politics. If you cured one party of it do they become some transcendent thing where they will win because of moral superiority? That seems like wishful thinking to me. Those in power will always skirt the rules, it is not a reason to not put rules to avoid the worst of it but it is something to keep in mind.
My whole point was not to let things get worse and worse. That is a total strawman and you know it. My point is that corruption needs to be reduced on the whole so we are not allowing power gained through corruption to tip the scales in one direction only. Not that no action should be taken.
If there is a system to deal with money in politics, that SCOTUS will not allow, than that is something. Doing the right thing should not put one at a political disadvantage but it often does.
I just disagree that curing the tumor from one arm while the other arm festers and spreads to the rest of the body is a good approach. You want to clear out as much as you can in the system as a whole.
And if that takes wholesale change of SCOTUS or whatever than I am game for that too as they are the main roadblock to getting anything regarding corruption in a modern sense on the books. Paltry as the efforts have been.
Look Raist bunnies...
