I stand by my Title.

The Citizens have been refused access to their own Government's inner workings, by a Criminal 2-party duopoly. First by the Deplorable actions of The Republican party, with sheer intent to undermine a Legitimate campaign any way it could. And The Democratic party, by complacency to do nothing about this very public affair. It'sbecause they are the other half of the game, only the Cool kids get to play. This country is locked up, with no entry-way into Governance on a Nation-Scale for anyone, other than the 2 prize turkeys they ceremonially march in front of us, and do stuff on the camera for our amusement. It's all scripted, and surprise outcomes will be made illegitimate.

Democracy is Dead, This is Reality TV.

Mate, I'm not even from your country but that OP is so true that to deny it would be the epitome of "pathetic".
Australia is not too far behind you either............

S&F for the courage to call it as you see it.

Democracy should die; this country was founded as a constitutional republic…

While that may be be very true, it does not make the OPs post any less valid. The entire system is a sham.

Im a Scot an American politics is like criket to me goes on for far to long an makes no sence..You have it set up in a two party state similar to UK ....Republican an Democrat parties we have Conservative and Labour aprinkling of Librall as well.An when we have an elections in Europe its about 4 weeks could be a bit long could be a bit less of electorneering leading up to 24 hours vote an a new PM is either elected ....................... Or the encumbant stays in office.But in America your President is forced into re election electeneering mode.As soon as he takes office he is already running for the second term .An the opposition is fighting to stop the second term.There never seems to be a consentious .I nwow you have mid terms an he has to present a poularity poll every year speech State of the Union.An after mid terms its full on 24 months electioneering were his oppent is elected an he has to refute debate with them to try an teep his job for 4 years after his mandatory 4 years are up.Dont you think your president would be better served with his time sorting out affairs of State Financial crissis sorting out the myrad of problems he must have to face, Catching terrorists an stopping threats an actions like 9 11 from happening.Dont you think it would be more prudent to lose all thease political talking head commentaters from tv?An reduce the elections an stuff the length off your rigid political procsess.M O O.An iys not just in plitics this penchant for drawing things out an turning the process into entertainment.You over do it with the legal process as well .Criminal justice in America can seee a defendant waiting years to receive a trial .Often with under prepared over worked an sadly sometimes incompetant puplic defenders .An just like your politics you turn your crimes into reality / entertainmebt / TV.. Admitidly some States are worse than others .Florida being one of the most blatant for sensatinolising there crimes for entertainment.Last 3 years it was Caylees Murder by trunk mom.At the momment its Trayvon Martins Murder .Thanks to there sunshine laws that let the public have accsess to a lot of discovery witness statements autopsy reports ect .This anount of info allows the m s m to fill a lot of time with talking heads exploiting people intrest in the gory details of thease tragedys.Nothing like this would be seen in the U K even after trials have finished in a process that on avrage takes 9 mnths foe arrest to trial an say 6 mnths if its a guilty plea an no trial.....Even after sentaceing in the UK we wouldnt have acsesse to the kind of info causualy released in some American States...........................
