If so, it is time to change the system. This time more progressive minded people should be writing the constitution.
I like to place a "bet"; I guarantee that no one here has the guts to "rewrite this document"; it is here as holy as the "bible". So forget that. Also as long as an two party system exits and "money" runs the elections, the "mess" and "corruption" stays.
Thus no wonder the churches say: Just pray and pay. (that helps)
Chet, there may be a lot of truth in what you have just said--which is unfortunate.
It's amazing how we will cling to document written 250 years ago by a bunch of racists, misogynists, and elitists. And it's amazing that since that time, we have written, discarded, and rewritten so many "accepted" models of understanding our world in the pure sciences and social sciences, and yet we are not allowed to imagine another version of democracy that will surpass western democracy.
In Canada, we have national and provincial elections where a governing party will receive 75% of the seats with 40% of the vote. Many of us get angry with this imbalance, yet just try to suggest to change the Westminster electoral system with a European PR system. Well, let's just say that if Canadians are not willing to consider this step, the TDG is, for sure, too far out of their reach.
The "pay and pray" may indeed be the psychology keeping people away from doing a little work to rewrite the constitution.
I'm not a believer in any deep state which keeps some nebulous group of people in power regardless of who wins the election. But if there is such an entity, it has done an excellent job in brainwashing the people not to consider other systems of governance.
