Dynastic Politics

While we have a provision in our constitution that prohibits political dynasties, there is a strong chance that fully a quarter of our 24-member senate may be composed of father-son, brother-sister, brother-brother tandems. Mind you, there are many other permutations possible.

There's nothing being done about this. Just another of those things that we, the disengaged, out-of-the-loop majority have been patiently tolerating from the beginning of our history. But also another reason why a total unknown like me with no money, no connections, no stake in the corrupt, fraud-ridden election apparatus is spoiling for an opportunity to fight.
