Here's the thing. You can argue all you want, but what will get the job done? Arguing won't. You need to be able to put people in power who will uphold the rule of law. We know have two parties, monopolizing power, who will not do that. Any attempt to vote for someone who will do that doesn't count because the bosses in each party won't allow a candidate with those views to succeed.

The two choices are bloody revolution or democracy. If you choose bloody revolution, then you might as well accept that it will be needed again and again instead of elections.

Correlation does not prove causality!
