Failure of democracy

Last night’s debate reinforces my observation that the American media and political system are broken. Bush is arrogant, mendacious and embarrassingly unintelligent. He and his cabal have put the United States in more danger than ever. He should be removed.

Any opposing candidate with real charisma and gumption should be able to walk over him. Yet, the Democratic Party has, once again, given us a bland candidate who fails to inspire and, ultimately, is controlled by the same elite. The press, also controlled by that same elite, only contributes to the mediocrity of leadership we are suffering from by assisting in falsely tearing down the real interesting candidates who would challenge the elite who control most of the media and political system.
