No doubt that not all politicians see things the same way you or I do. This does not by definition make them rogue politicians. The last I checked there is an impeachment process in America, as well as recall procedures. Therefore, according to your point of view we have rogue politicians being supported by rogue citizens?

Appeasement was the solution people wanted when they re-elected Clinton after he traded ballistic missile targeting technology to the Chinese.

Your philosophy is too simplistic to be countered on a forum like this; which I suspect is your point. Nothing you say makes any sense in a free society. Politicians are no the problem, and never can be. The citizenry no longer cares. That is the issue at hand. Still, the issues are complex, and cannot be wiped away with terms like rogue politicians.

Oh, last I checked China is a sovereign nation. Exactly what are we supposed to do about stopping their financial growth?
