It is certainly behaving like an empire in decline.
Your grips, complaints and general whining do not actually relate to the political system but with the People, politicians (the ones you don't like), and the media.
1. The Electoral College profoundly inhibits voting in Presidential elections. Specifically the insane "winner take all" format.
No. No matter what criteria is used to determine the winner (including popular vote) it remains "winner take all".
2. The entrenched Duopoly --- a century and a half of two political parties running the show,...
No reason we can't have as many political parties as we want. Or as few.
3. A Commercial Mass Media that obsesses over the personal rather than the political.
Trump's election should show that
1. The media isn't nearly as big an influence as many think because
2. People no longer place so much confidence in media accuracy or honesty. It appears that media has become very like Provda.
3. The system is working just fine, thank you.
Democrats are hell bent on making all the decisions. The voters are just as determined to stop that from happening.
I have no doubt about democrats losing more seats in '18.
--------------------------------------------- sure they can vote , just take a muslim out of Syria , give him sustenance and shortly after he will be voting for HIS wants , needs , preferences legally or illegally . As example , take that 'mashood' muslim guy that ran over pedestrians the other day . He was born in England , was in his 50s but he and his ilk will always be 'foreigners' in the Western world . Its foreigners like 'mashood' that put 'sadiki khan' in mayoral office in Londonistan England Pogo .
I clicked funny on all yer posts and I am talking or typing as I tell you what I think Pogo !!
You didn't address the flaw in any way whatsoever. Thanks for the confirmation, but I already knew that. Hence the OP. Very well not done anything about.
Go ahead and try to launch some. Even one. That's the easy part. Then try to get anything done with it against the Duopoly. Rotsa ruck.
Again, no content, no ideas.
They don't huh.
"Three million illegals voted"?
"Three million Amish voting for Rump"?
"Hillary has Parkinsons"?
"CIA guy murdered by Clintons"?
"Yoko had affair with Hillary"?
Lotta ad money was made in Macedonia from these and many more fabrications. They don't make money without big influence. If a large number of Gullibles weren't placing confidence in this bullshit ---- we would never have heard of them and you'd have no idea what they refer to.
Americans have been in conscientious decline since their independence from Europe. As of now, I believe all Americans secretly want an authoritarian regime aligned with their policy beliefs.
Our system has always been an authoritarian system.
I agree about 90%. My disagreement is that I think until 1861, most Americans were willing to give the Republic a chance.
