14. Big money will always try to buy politicians

Given that our nation functions as a two party system, those shopping for political favors always know what doors to knock on with campaign contributions and the like. Many give to both party's candidates. Why not? Often it only buys them a chance to be heard out personally by whoever they contribute to on whatever matter concerns them, but that is more than 99% of us can count on.

On the whole Democrats are far less susceptible to big money influence peddling than Republicans, but no party is immune. Agreed, we have to get money out of politics to the extent humanly possible.
