I can see your point. In other countries, most of them have historically been this way, but not out of short attention span. Rather, I think it's
just simply tyranny. In the U.S., we are supposed to be For the People, BY the People, and we seemed to have forgotten that. Since we forget it,
higher powers can exploit it until someone remembers and makes a ruckus... then, while they are in a tangent, something else comes up for them to
shout about, and the last 'mission' is utterly forgotten again.
