America's governments can't really do anything positive or progressive , they're to busy chasing money (bribes) from the corporate moneymen , i think in America these shysters are euphemistically called 'lobbyists', when in reality its nothing short of legalized bribery. The rich establishment who own all the wealth and corporations, use this as a method of controlling government , 'every government'.
Under America's political system of 'pay to play', without the constant influx of establishment money, all these politicians would be sent packing and unemployed to small town America. What's even more sad but hilarious, the establishment wealthy who pay these bribes, get to write off most if not all this money as tax deductions, so ultimately you and i, pay these bribes which undermines and parallelizes our political system, making it disfunctional and ineffective. Don't believe me, just look at the last 8 years of Congress.
Of course there are simple solutions, ban all lobbying, make it a criminal offense to offer money to a politician. Set limits on political finance spending, set tough time limits for electioneering, create and enforce only publicly financed elections. But of course that will never happen , because the rich establishment own all the forms of information that Americans tap into daily and if you think 24/7 Trump is unbearable , try taking the establishment government control away and just watch as the shit hits the fan. America you haven't got a chance, short of a revolution and the overthrow of the rich subversive establishment, it's never going to change.
