In a lot of ways, I agree with you. But look what happened between 2008 and 2016. Would you really put your faith in the American voter? But when you have shit for candidates to choose from and the biggest bank account gets you in, hey, who needs votes.
Can you just imagine how many dead people voted in South Florida this last month? It's amazing how all of these so called ballot boxes are being found in obscure corners of buildings. The whole thing is so corrupt on both sides it's sickening. The Internet has turned what little brains the public is walking around with, further into mush. There is only one side, only one party, only one race and tons of hatred.
