Without making things too political, a system of only two political parties that has political power, where the top thing on the agenda is to make the opposing party look bad, where the majority of the politicians come from overpriviledged homes and though using nice rhetorics and the right keywords really only care about their own personal political agenda or the interests of his/hers group of peers (which no mere mortal ever will be part of) doesnt really seem to be that much about the people anymore does it?
Everytime there's a potential great leader, regardless of political affiliation, coming from a more normal background. He or she gets scrutinised to such a degree it's ridiculous on grounds that belongs in cheesy soap operas, the ability to solve problems and take care of the people should be what matters not
You don't need captain America as your leader, you need a good capable person.
I feel bad for the American people, because you are torn in two if not three and four, when you should be united as one.
People may say what they like about the current US leader, but he has not managed to unite the people, and this isn't just because he is who he is, but because this is the protocol of politics to only embrace ones own and when the polls says something; there's a PR
event, a smile or concern, and a handshake, nothing really gets done. This is regardless of affiliation. Who is in fact the Master of Puppets in the US? It's certainly not the voters.
There's no policy, just the populist issue of the day. No actual longterm commitment, push the right buttons.
A big name/money corporation/organisation has more influence on US politics than you, the people.
So the people US have different opinions on how their country should be run, this is a good thing, this could lead to good results if the energy wasn't wasted on attributing political affiliation with negatives.
I'm almost certain that this big shit throwing contest of the Democrats and Republicans almost is a ploy, like that of Ceauşescu the former president of Romania to turn off the electricity for periods of time so that people would rather care about keeping warm and getting food than care about politics.
Stop letting them play you, you are better than that and you deserve better.
