How about we make this distinction:

that there is a Federal/National government that, for the most part, disregards what "the people want" because they are too far removed from their problems and, also, bribery enabled by lobbyists, and that there is a State/,or even better, local government that is accountable to much fewer a population which becomes more responsive because there are less votes to be able to change a corrupt proposition.

Your choice is to give up our rights to a more ignorant and corrupt system while the local choice is to convince less people to become involved per choice. This makes each choice less corruptible.

Love thy enemy.
