@Jennifer, lots of good points. I just think people are often looking away at causes of this "problem" that are easier to identify, but I think the truth of the matter is closer to what you've laid out. IMO. (no one asked for my opinion ) But the real question then, as with any problem, is how to change that. And there doesn't seem to be a fast, simple solution such as "vote for someone different". It's complicated and layered.
