    That’s right… The US is no longer the Republic it was founded to be. It has been replaced by “Democracy” in the form of mob rule. The tyrrany of the majority so to speak.
    .
    From direct election of Senators that stripped states of their power in Congress, to calls to end the Electorial College, to states using "Winner take all’ in Presidential elections, the US has withered from a place where there were 50 experiments in what worked best to an oppressive, unresponsive, and costly central government that will ruin the lives of the majority while ensuring that Big Business and The Rich are entrenched and protected.

    “Fair and honest.” Not at all. Gerrymandered districts decide elections, no thanks. How about one man one vote? You want fair and honest for all Americans then let them speak individually when selecting our President.

    No tig I’ve never had anything but disdain for the practice of gerrymandering, voter suppression or voter fraud.

    The conservative voices on SCOTUS, appointed by Republican Presidents, gave our Democracy a savage blow with its Citizens United ruling. Our elections are now fair game by anonymous political donors.
    .
    To conservatives, the ends justify the means, just as long as it keeps them in power. Result is the influence of a few plutocrats and corporations (and possibly foreign interests) buying propaganda to influence elections.
    .
    Add in the cumulative effects of union-busting (which is the only political power left in opposition), gerrymandering, and various forms of voter suppression, and you have the entrenchment of power in the hands of those whose policies, on their own merit, would not otherwise have been supported by the voting public.
    .
    But to conservative posters here on this forum – that’s okay, because it’s being done by Republicans.

    well said! and, if we keep the masses uneducated and working two jobs to make ends meet, there will be no one to complain in the future. one would think tht the average citizen who lived through the meltdown of neil bush’s savings and loan debacle and the crash of george w’s hot air balloon would pay attention to how much the country lost. we lost face, we lost the middle class and the upper middle class, we lost a future that included the preponderance of the citizens of the United States.

    When a massive devastation occurs, it cannot be fixed in a day. we are STILL suffering from those cataclysmic blows and despite the efforts of the neo-republican party to destroy obama regardless of the detrimental effects on the country, we are inching out of the hole the tea party republicans and the bush family put us in. i miss my ‘old’ republican party.

    It wasn’t mine much, but I miss it, too. Did support Nixon once, Reagan once. Never again.
