How am I supposed to climb the ladder when I go against smurfs pretty much every game?

This is becoming very annoying and unfair. There are so many smurfs account from either Platinum, Diamond or higher, it's just blatantly obvious based on their mechanics and what champion they're playing. And it makes the game really non-enjoyable. I know Riot will never put their foot down with smurf account since they generate revenue but I just thought I would vent here, since I know I'm not the only one that gets frustrated about this thing. I hate smurfs with a passion. It makes Ranked unfair. I don't want to be matched against someone that is way higher skill-wise and tier wise than I am. It doesn't feel competitive at all and it doesn't make me want to get better, it just makes me feel miserable that I got stomped on like a bug.
