Quote from Woodrow Wilson,

Woodrow Wilson 
28th President of the United States 
1856 – 1924
“All over the Union, people are coming to feel that they have no control over the course of affairs…. ‘We vote; we are offered the platform we want; we elect the men who stand on that platform; and we get absolutely nothing.’ So they begin to ask: ‘What is the use of voting? We know that the machines of both parties are subsidized by the same persons, and therefore it is useless to turn in either direction.’ “
