I know people hate this answer, but it's because the so called "plutocracy" isn't a big evil entity trying to screw us over, and nobody who understands the situation has the drive to punish or "oust" this so called plutocracy.

Our issues are ourselves. The US gets the government the US deserves. When we vote in new people, it will be because we actually do think the old ones failed us.
