    Dav and Jamesrage.. This is a multiple vote poll.. You only selected "the people(I read the other options)"..

    My question is this. Did you really read the other options? & Are you really so naive?

    Are you talking who it should serve, or who is serves as it is?

    The U.S. 1% is who it serves.

    Its obvious that you have a hatred for our system, Max, the sooner you live up to this, the better - for your peace of mind and happiness.
    Our political system is far from perfect, reform is necessary, we simply need many more Americans to care and to participate.
    No vote...
    If your nation is as corrupt and biased as the poll selections....

    A minority of the people vote and a minority of those actively participate, and judging from the town hall debacles, a minority of those know how to participate effectively and properly...

    The reform that I'd love to see is:
    no more 2nd,3rd languages,
    no more small print
    no more propaganda.
    taxpayer paid campaigns, but very limited (low priority).

    Cynicism is easy, but it does not make you particularly right. There are corrupt politicians, and politicians who are just party hacks, but overall the government does serve us, the people.
    We became a great nation not because we are a nation of cynics. We became a great nation because we are a nation of believers - Lindsey Graham

    The American political system is supposed to serve the people. What is so naive about that?

    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.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    He is just pissed that people are voting that way.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
