I mean what do you do when the odds are completely stacked against you? When companies use money to not only dictate laws and keep politicians in their pockets, but also, thanks to Citizens United, elections. What do you do when pharmaceutical companies spend more or marketing than research to introduce unnecessary, overpriced drugs to the populace? How do you stop defense contractors from hiring former politicians who use their buddies to earn deals and then charge the taxpayers a thousand dollars for a roll of toilet paper?
