    Is it open to corruption and all that other crap on your list? Yes it is, but it still doesn't change the fact it is supposed to serve the people.
    SUPPOSE, yes, but lets look at the reality of who it servers, rather than who is is SUPPOSE to serve.

    We could be better. But we're still better than most, and pretty much tied with most of the 1st world.
    It doesnt measure real corruption. It doesnt take into consideration the corruption surrounding elections for example. It doesnt cover actual corruption. Nor does it cover corruption that is not yet considered corruption. And again, wikipedia is a lame source.

    It serves America. Not all of us, not all the time, but it serves America, Her Good and her Bad. So there. Does that answer your question? Or are you fishing for people who either agree with you so you can have a conspiracy circle jerk or people who don't agree with you so you can Debate them over a silly question?

    No. It pissed me off that the election process is completely corrupted and that the people in the US are left to select one of two parties(and that Europeans more and more are left choosing one side or the other).

    It pisses me of that no matter what the people select out of the two options, most policies are pre-decided no matter what.

    They must be doing what they trick the majority into believing what they want is. Also they implement most policies no matter if its the republicans or democrats, no matter what the people think of the individual issues. A two party dictatorship is only conceivably better than a one party dictatorship.

Nothing more than appeasing the aristocracy.
    I hate the bailouts.. Its sadly the same here in Europe, although we dont have two parties, all the parties are splitting into permanent coalitions against the other coalition. Politics become more uniform, and more and more policies get implemented no matter if the people actually want it or not.
    I personally believe a flaw of the party system is that it will always turn into a non-constructive two side dogfight with the people and democracy being victims and having no say on policies, just select one of the sides. That isnt really democracy. I find that most sad for America though, who brags about their democracy and wants to spread this s*** to other nations.

    You are wrong again. Before the reichtag fire, the NAZI party and Hitler already had 30% of the people in their hands. Hitler and the NAZI party had strong support all through the war, until it started going bad. Propaganda was a major part of it. People on the outside could see beyond the propaganda, just like those outside the US can see beyond it today, while the people is enslaved by it.

    Are you seriously going to tell me I'm wrong and then repeat what I said but in more detail?
