I pose this particular question to you:
Are the people who are in positions of authority in the United States Government really to blame for it's troubles?

But much of this is the ignorance of the American people. If you ask them what the deficit this year is, less than ten percent would even be in the ballpark. If you asked them what the difference was between the deficit and the national debt, I'll bet less than five percent would know. If you asked how much of their tax money was going to service the debt, again, only a tiny percentage could tell you.
Yes, the U.S. is a "democracy",
