Let's be honest, the system is a little bit broken in my opinion, but in the end, the people are the ones that fuel that. I think that we simply don't have enough educated voters to capitalize on the fairly sound political system we have. If we did, there would certainly be more moderate and balanced politics. One thing I don't like about the political system is the barring of 3rd parties from debates. That seems to partially be limiting the peoples ability to vote effectively. All in all though, if we are to get out of this situation we need to educate our voters. Not just on conservative and liberal policy, but on bi-partisan ones as well.
You misstated what was said several times. Nobody ever mentioned the Constitution or the principles the country was founded on. There are problems with the way the US government is governing in our opinion. You don't agree, fine who cares? Most people think there are flaws in the current gov.
