    That's the problem!  If it were just one issue, I wouldn't be here making this argument.  But it's been one thing after another after another since the early 2000's and maybe before, and people can't take it any more.  People are waking up and realizing that parties don't matter if people in power are breaking the law without feeling the consequences of their actions.  They need to feel the shame and the poverty and the pain and the torture they are inflicting on others, or it won't stop.  The planet's weather systems are coming apart, radiation and oil are spilling into the environment, forests are being cut down for profit, young people have no jobs and increasingly no education, and old people have no jobs and increasingly no retirement funds.  Meanwhile our politicians are doing things like beating the drums for a proxy war in Syria with Iran.  They're going to start World War III if they're not careful!  We cannot put up with these things any longer-- people are going to die!  Somebody has to stand up and say that "right" and "wrong" aren't equal to "Democrat" and "Republican" or the other way 'round, or indeed, any other affiliation.  If you do a crime, you should have to do the time, and it doesn't matter if you're a Wall Street banker or the President.  And if you think that's naive, fine, but if you think we can have a stable society without law, order, and accountability at the top, I think you've been seriously  misinformed.
