Are you seriously not getting this part? It's the part you yourself said happens. The rich use the broken system to influence the system, to keep it broken, so they can get richer. That's on them. Their personal responsibility is when they use their money to influence the laws in ways that benefit them.

Personal responsibility is the people in power being responsible for how they use that power. It isn't the people who have little power failing to wrest it from those who do.

You got that right, someone here is refusing to let rich people accept responsibility for how they use their money.
No, it's still on the system that ALLOWS it. THEY created it, the rich people are USING it.

Which happened first?
