You hit the nail on the head. The game is "power." The founders purposely diffused power knowing it has a corrupting influence no matter who has it. Over the years the lure of power has corrupted our system to what is now, a blackhole for sucking in our wealth, and thus the power of the people. Remember: "you didn't build that, someone else did." I am afraid it will take a second revolution by the people to take back the power and reestablish a diffusion of it as was intended.
