    That sounds like normal behavior for special interest groups. And in fact isn't a political party, in the final analysis, a conspiracy in the same way?

    Sounds familiar to me as well, with the usual hyperbolic slant. No doubt they hacked someone, lied every step of the way, have bad teeth and like guns...

    I know that the US has seen extreme currents in the political culture recently, and you have the possibility of a president independent of party politics, plus only two major parties, but normally the system is built upon that if you join a party, you largely agree with its policy and the constitution, not that you lie about your convictions and secretly work against all of this. It is the task of the party to keep that line. Unfortunately, recent populist vulgarizations and radicalizations have made political culture, and options for enlightened dialogue and compromizes, decline in some places. The bigger a range of parties, the better the chances that you feel well represented.
