So who has political power? Who has responsibilty? Does anyone?

Lets look at the United States and how the buck is passed.



-Supreme Court

-Federal Reserve

-Ratings Agencies

-IMF/World Bank

Democracy is a form of government in which all eligible citizens have an equal say in the decisions that affect their lives. Democracy allows people to participate equally—either directly or through elected representatives—in the proposal, development, and creation of laws. It encompasses social, economic and cultural conditions that enable the free and equal practice of political self-determination.

Now before some 'smart' guy tells me that The United States is a Rebublic let me say, clap clap. We all know that. The United States has 'representative democracy'. In my opinion The United States doesnt have, and has never had real democracy but they claim to be the centre of Democracy in the world and they even use 'democracy' as an excuse to invade other nations.

So what does American 'democracy' do for the American people? It seems very little.

Do the American people really have any say in the decisions that affect their lives?

Who can the American people hold responsible when things dont get done and dont work?

The President can blame congress.

The President can blame the Supreme Court.

The Federal Reserve can blame the President and Congress. The Federal Reserve acts like it is above the President and Congress and they talk down to Congress and the President.

Ratings Agencies like Standards and Poors are above the Federal Reserve, Supreme Court,Congress and the President. A Ratings Agency can tell a nation what to do.

The IMF and World Bank are the Kings Of The Castle. They basically create reality depending on their agenda.

So when the President of the United States has so many people to blame, how can the people make their leader own responsibilty for the leaders short comings and failures?

Does the person the people elect have any real power at all? I say no.

Does the United states have 'democracy'? I say hell no. So why are they trying to spread this nonsense far and wide?

Why do they hold elections at all?
