I would agree with the sentiment, but debate that it is a uniquely American issue. I have friends the world over and cannot think of any in what we would call the "Western world" who are not also coming to these same realization about their own governments.
My Scots friends furious that they were probably just lied to about vote counts which would have given them their own nation.
My English friends who are having the same sorts of bank based Corporate overtaking of their government.
My Aussie friends who are unhappy about the way their nation is handling domestic policies.
This is truly a global phenomenon. Either America is simply ahead of the curve, or more vocal than others about the issues. But, Hell, even Canadians are getting frustrated and it takes a LOT to piss off a Canadian!
