Well tbh, the whole fucking US political system is so fucked it would be hilarious if it wasn't so terrifying.


I don't even understand why anyone (except the filthy rich) would want to live there, it looks like you are living your lives at the mercy of some paranoid, fundamentalist, corrupt schizoid waving a gun around.

I mean look at your politicians, look at your political system, its so fucked I'm struggling to verbalize it.

And its all the more tragic when you think of what the U.S was/is/has done of good to the world.

Believe me, I'm fed up with the 3 ring circus in Washington as much as anyone, but you have to understand that our political system is fucked by design. Yep, that's right...it's working just like it's supposed to. If it didn't work this way then the most populous/wealthy states (California, Texas, NY) would be running the entire country as they please...and even then they probably have more power than they should. As it is you can have a few congressmen/senators from sparsely populated states going against the majority and fucking everything up...once again by design.

I dunno, firstly no one forced you into a 2party system (that is one of the biggest flaws), and secondly, there is nothing (in theory/history) to stop you from implementing a voting-balance system that accounts for population.

Except, that's the ironic part; This is no longer a two party system.

It's a one party state masquerading as a two party state.

Easy way to see this, is that (at least at the national level) most of the candidates' platforms aren't even THAT different than each other, most of the time.

Take a look at either parties' conventions for the past decade or so at least. Look at it, then tell me how it is in the least different than your average weekly episode of professional wrestling.
