    Actually it is much harder to screw your own population over in the US, because the political system gives opportunity for more people to become senate member. I don't think americans should worry too much about issues being implemented behind doors.

    However, look to Europe and you will see a lot of party politics. Because every single party, even among parties is a tiny knit community. Also when they vote, everyone in the same party vote the same. Because if you want to get into politics, then you have to go through the party, be extremly popular in that party and be elected an representative. Then the government can ratify laws that very few people approve.

    I have to disagree.
    We have politicians who do not think it is their job to read the bills they vote yes for( along with lots of idiots who think this as well), politicians who sneak in unrelated legislation into bills, politicians who toss the salad of companies, politcians who do not give a rats ass what voters want especially when it will be a while before they have to run again, voters with short attention span or memory and politicians who will try to make it sound like we need this and there is alternative. So it would be very easy for them to sneak something like this through.
    "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
