Democracy in America

I have seen several polls in recent months that indicate that the more people support some action by the Congress, the less likely the Congress will take action and if they do opposite to the desires of the electorate.

I am put in mind of an analogy: In the Soviet Union there was one political party; only members of that party could stand for election and hold political office; political office holders represented their party, not their electorates.

In the Yankee republic, there are two political parties; only members of those parties can stand for election and hold political office; political office holders represented their party, not their electorates. And their corporate sponsors.

This is democracy in contemporary Amerika.
