What if the problem is these career politicians have fixed the system? What should be independent checks and balances have been politicized, everything from the FBI/DOJ/IRS to MSM, set up to protect corrupt career politicians, a whole industry of think tanks and pressure groups funded by large corporations who are forever pushing for rules that make their companies more money at the expense of the people who elected these career politicians and who the elected career politician should be working for.
What if someone from the outside, with zero experience in politics comes in and does a better job than we have been seeing from career politicians and their cottage industry in Washington?
That is the question, and perhaps existential threat everyone in Washington is asking themselves. It’s also why they are going so hard after Trump. IMO anyway.
