Part of the problem is that, it's actually very difficult to design a system that caters to the needs of 319,000,000 people over 3,806,000 sq miles (9,857,000 sq km) - that doesn't do horrible things along the way to accomplish it.

That said, there's too much money going into US politics on all sides and at all levels, and rigid adherence to strict ideology on the basis of how one sees the world (_not_ the other way around, as the political parties do try to cater to the whims of the electorate) never solves anything in the long-term. Buyer's remorse two months in, is still kinda fast though.

America is using a broken and corrupt system. I expect a revolution in the near future, similar to France's revolution - except that it'll probably lead into WW3 because of the US's current "stabilizing" force in the world (in defense of us, we've only toppled... what, half the Middle East? Meh)

Unfortunately America is more of an Oligarchy than a Democracy, we don't get candidates that do what is best for the public, but instead what is best for a few key organizations in the US. It's depressing and the system is in need of reform, but the Catch 22 with it is that we need someone in office who would be willing to reform the system.

No, we don't really get to choose our candidates. The major parties, the news, the politicians... they only put a few people in front of us and say, "One of these is your choice". Then two of them "campaign", and then we elect somebody.

It's lot like those Futurama episodes, where "Jack Johnson" and "John Jackson" are on TV, saying the same things with slightly different words. We have no choice of politicians in the U.S. Only two slightly different flavors of the same political candy.

@KOakaKO, we're given a chance to choose our candidates too, but for some reason, people seem to choose the worst candidates.

Well... almost, but not quite. The average U.S. voter just sighs and says, "I know this guy sucks, but I'll vote for him because the other guy sucks even more". Here we call that a "free election", which is an oxymoron because we almost never get to vote for somebody is actually competent to do the job.

I've learned, in almost 50 years, that it really doesn't matter who wins. About 50% of elected officials are lawyers, so the lawyers really ARE running the country - which isn't a joke, because jokes are supposed to be FUNNY.

I skip the first phase altogether and just go straight to "Noooo" xD
