Since the only action that might make a difference anymore is local, it's a good time to keep a close eye on the rat bastards in charge of our cities and counties. The bribes are relatively small for a handsome return on a privatized city water system or port.
The municipal weasels are still practicing their skills, in hopes of moving to the state or federal level where the graft is really life changing for themselves (and of course their families). This helps to even the odds for the little guy, making it possible to keep a few essential services locally owned, if one is diligent enough to thwart the inexperienced thieves of local government. Otherwise, they will certainly "do" us while we sleep.
Let productive people pay to build infrastructure, then let the investment leeches take it over. A vital part of what made America what it is today.
