    When Trumpers Deep State they are talking about patriots and real Americans trying to hold a corrupt and treasonous president accountable. Cultists want no accountability for their liege. Thank heaven for the "Deep State".

    The deep state consists of operatives placed within the government bureaucracy, by the ruling class, who administer the ruling class's desires while your locally elected officials feign interest in your desires.

    This isn't Deep State.

    This is the way people vote. Because they have FPTP which makes it easier for larger parties to do well, then there are only two viable parties. In such a situation politicians become lazy because there's no threat much.

    It's in the interest of the ruling class to limit our choices and play the options off one another. The ruling class's operatives work behind the spotlight of media attention that is focused on the partisan divide.

    Oh totally it's in the interests of the rich to limit choice. It's much easier to choose a winning horse when there's only two in the race.

    The problem with your argument is that I've been coming on here for years and telling people about Proportional Representation and people don't want to even find out about it.

    Republican people on here don't want it because they know they'd lose their unfair advantage.

    Democrats fear that the left would split up and the right would be more unified.

    FPTP is all about negative voting, but people also have these weird negative views about going for a system like PR. Mostly it's down to ignorance on their part as the "reasons" they give are total crap, and usually what they complain would happen is what already happens.

    The Deep State, whatever it is, doesn't need to do much at all.

    But of there is a deep state, the Koch brothers are at the heart of it.
