Which side it right? How do you tell when there is not an honest, non-conflicted referee?

As I’ve said before, I don’t pretend to have the answer. I’ve hired (voted for and paid their salaries) congressmen that I want to call all of the climate experts together and get to the bottom of it.
All I know is that it is hot!
And I want our corn earmarked for the belly, not the gas tank.
But our esteemed leaders have a problem. Some are on the payroll of the fracking and coal industries, and others get their campaign bribes from the Green industries. ALL of them conflicted and we’ll never get a correct answer, and even when we do we’ll not trust it.
Our problem, our nation’s #1 problem, is that our congress runs like a 1930’s Mafia gang! These very politicians that we bow to, are crooks that steal from our tables. The campaign funding system is broken, and neither side wants it fixed.
Cash dollars, campaign bribes, from corporate benefactors is what drives our fracking issue. And healthcare issues and jobs issues and defense issues and every other issue that affects Americans. We have a super country that is very rich, or at least was at one time. But our politicians have swapped our wealth for campaign bribes, and the voters don’t seem to get it.
The politicians should cut the defense budget to what is needed to protect America, but the defense manufacturers won’t like that a bit and they are heavy hitters with campaign bribes.
And jobs? Don’t even think about it until we repeal NAFTA, Bill Clinton’s 1995 debacle that sends jobs to China even today. But the manufacturers love it, at least for the moment. But when all of their technology is stolen they may finally get pissed.
As one with a 7-year-old granddaughter with diabetes, I’d rather the money we give to the bankers and other corporate subsidies, be spent on diabetes research instead.
