This isn't a "dictator situation", it's systemic. It's based on capitalism, and the concept that perpetual economic growth is required to maintain the status quo. The international banksters and corporations are the true powers behind the thrones around the globe. Political theatre is just a distraction to keep the public focused on useless debates about polarizing cultural differences while the rich and powerful become more so every day.
And by the way, the water swirls down your toilets the wrong way, therefore your opinion is moot.
( That is a joke, of course, however, since you're not here to live in America, it's easy for you to stereotype our country and our citizens. The government is not composed of the average person. The governments of the world represent the interests of the rich and influential, nothing more. Australia is no better )
