That would be nice if that was the case, but it is not. All of the candidates that have any chance of winning any national election are bought and paid for by corporations, special interests, and the obscenely rich.

Even the only supposed "grass roots" movement we have available is powered by the insurance companies (in addition to being racist, anti-woman, anti-gay, and basically regular old insane).
