All the candidates are bought and paid for by the rich. It doesn't matter which one gets picked.

But they do offer slight policy differences.

The US grew far faster between 1920 and 1980 when the tax rates on the richest of the rich was
anywhere between 55 and 90%.
Since 1980 the US has stagnated and the tax rate on the rich has gone down to less than 40%.
Now we have a choice between democrats who propose something like a 40% tax rate on the richest
of the rich while the republicans are happy holding the government hostage to keep the rate right
around 36%.
Six of one, half dozen of the other.

Well, my main sources about corruption in Communist countries have been books, including history books. And I do realize that the existence of a lot of corruption in Communist countries in the past does not necessarily reflect on the present. But from what I've heard many Communist governments still have at least as much corruption as the US.
