    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.
    The problem isn't limited to Americans. All politicians are from the same cloth. They're a bunch of jerks no matter where you go. Europe, America, the Middle East...a bunch of jerks who think themselves privileged and above others f'n it up for everyone else.

    Unfortunately, anarchy isn't stable.

    no

    try acceptance and tolerance instead.
    Most Americans seem to like things as they are.
    A negative view on things is not good, Max.
    Why not study the system and find out why?
    Forget about trying to change things as you want them to be..

    My question is this. Did you really read the other options? & Are you really so naive?
    So you don't want to hear other people's opinion... in yet another anti-American anti-America thread.

    I want those people to be better informed, thats all. I want people to decide, but its vital that those people are well informed about the reality.

    The people choose the politicians. The people can choose to remove the politicians. Welcome to the American system of government, which is still superior to other systems.

    Any proof of this?
    Or is this one man's opinion based on one incident.
    Corruption festers as few care.
    Is good that you seem to care, but the people must clean the government.
    Government is not self-cleaning.
    The true corruption is in the people, not the government.

    What is so idiotically retarded is that you think that you are informed and we, and I, am not. That is not very egotistical of you at all...
