You mean their budgets have shrunk to the point where they won't even be able to do tv or online advertising? 

I like big banners, but don't know if that's an effective way to reach a broad swath of the electorate in the 21st century.

It could just be campaign fatigue, but....it's just a weird sense. Could be totally off.

I guarantee a person will get elected who I dislike. About little more than half the people will be unhappy about this. We'll have some chaff and some partisan bickering. We'll muddle through. Eventually we'll get a 9th seat on the supreme court filled (October 15th, 2017 is my square for the pool). 4 years from now we'll have a similar set of arguments, lather rinse repeat. Some of us will do fine, others a little less so. The ones below the average line will say "I told you so" the others will shrug. The sun will rise, the tide will come in and the tide will go out. 

And the cubs still won't win the series.

different rules for the rulers

special interest groups want to wield that force (or the threat of force) to impose their will on others

Well said.

Our leaders need to do first by example. If our leaders use violence to get their ways it sets a precedent in other deranged minds.

American Exceptionalism, according to ...

Ameritanity

Wikipedia

Dan Gilgoff, CNN.com Religion Editor

On the Commons

American Foreign Relations

A cursory reading of any of these shows a wide diversity of opinion. Is exceptionalism religious-based? Constitutionally founded? Held in the projection of American power abroad? Economic? Social? 

Part of the discussion (battle?) may be over its very definition.
