Is the US politically broken ?

If so, how and why?
AbbeyRhode · F
Not just the U.S. A lot of others have also become complacent, sat back, and allowed evil people to assume power. They are finally waking up now, and some are trying to fight their way back. I just hope it's not too late.

@AbbeyRhode with electronic voting it’s easy to do. That is one thing that needs to be done away with.

The left is completely corrupt, and the right (elected officials) are too chicken shit to do anything about it.

Good question sir. It used to be that the opinions of the opposition (whatever that was at any given time) were listened to and given respect) were considered and when a decision was made it was supported by the opposition. At some point it stopped working that way. Citizens of the US have become tribal and the opposition is now to be derided and run over as though by a truck. Americans don’t respect Americans. Sometimes I think the only reason there is no civil war is geography. Is it past the point where we can put it all back together?

According to Sir John Glubb in his seminal work "Fate of Empires", of the 6 stages that prominent empires historically go through before collapsing after approximately 250 years each, the US is currently in the last stage of Decadence.

Yes. Both sides have been bought by the same people and the job of both sides is to keep the people divided against each other so you dont notice who is profiting..😷

@jackjjackson Acentury ago she would be one. Now they are Dupes , like Andrew

I would not underestimate the queen or fuck with her. @whowasthatmaskedman
whowasthatmaskedman · 70-79, M
@jackjjackson I dont. But the queens power and income, as rich as she is, comes in passive forms like property. She doesnt manipulate wealth in the modern way. No need to be underhanded, Like Jeffrey Epstein..
beyond repair.

foreign ca$h buys foreign agents.

term limits and random audits of all politicians and family members every 2 years..


actually. 9 times out of ten its embezzled US tax dollars. filtered back from NGOs to payoff the agents of foreign countries,

end the NGO madness.
non government agencies with ZERO oversight. receiving billions of dollars

how dumb iz they?..

Yes because politicians don’t care about us.

@Jonjdw I'd say people don't care about people, politicians just reflect their electorates
The government is to big, to self serving and makes to many false promises for votes.

I think its 1 out of 16 people that work, work directly for the govt. Of the 150 million that work thats nearly 10 million that have a better quality of life then the rest of us, that are just trying to keep up.

@checkoutanytime Move to south Italy, see by yourself how well a little government (or no government) society will benefit you. Just beware of the local entrepreneurs, they sometimes tend to shoot at each other in the streets and you don't really want to find yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time
@Elessar we dont need a federal government this large, most of our governing needs are handled by the states. The federal comes up with ways to tax the public, for its own growth.
Elessar · 26-30, M
@checkoutanytime As I said, go see by yourself how it's working in south Italy

Needs to be cleansed and rebuilt based on the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

I think the world's politics are broken
We vote by cult of personality or party now, here.
It doesn't matter what is wrong or right in your eyes what matters is which political party you are associated with.
So, it's very easy to condemn one political parties candidate for one thing, but still ignoring the same corrupt behavior by your own parties candidate.
Conviction no longer carries much weight.
akindheart · 61-69, F
Yes. We have reached an all time low when weaponize parts of our govt
jackjjackson · 61-69, M
I’m moving to Finland 🤙🏼
PatKirby · M
Me too. I hear the new prime minister is really cool at parties!
jackjjackson · 61-69, M
Exactly! @PatKirby
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
@PatKirby She has to take a drug test now. 😂
Fairydust · F

This explains why it’s broken! Has been for years.

too much money in politics--special interest groups have more power than individuals, because they have so much money to contribute to campaigns..if elected, most become rich, at least nationally
Yes... both parties are corrupt ...we are in serious trouble ...no one wants real change ...no one really cares or wants what is best for the people in this country
shuhak · M
No, just intelligence challenged.

We had an outbreak of stupidity a ways back, and it quickly turned into an epidemic.

USA is a mood challenged angst filled hormonal TEENAGER having growing pains. Could be a rough ride for a while yet.
FreestyleArt · 31-35, M
It's been broken for a long time. It's just revealing itself
Elessar · 26-30, M
Only the US?

Was it ever not? It has been, ever since ''The fourth of July 1776''
