R.I.P. TO AMERICA DEMOCRACY

“When I call they kiss my a&$; A total and complete shutdown of Muslims in this country until we can figure out what the hell is going on”. What is taken place in Americas democracy is what everyone around the world is asking. These comments were made by Donald Trump, the presumptive nominee for the GOP party, the comments and the fiasco of the 2016 election cycle has destroyed America’s political system. For some time now, America’s democracy has been slowly dying, with the pollution of money in our political system, backdoor raw deals made and the overall failure to represent WE THE PEOPLE, America’s democracy is now dead. The 2016 election cycle is demonstrating just how the people and the system are no longer connected and how the people are being misled.

People who participate in eating contest have to shove and stuff loads of food in their mouths in order to win, sometimes they will regurgitate their food. This is what both parties have done to we the people, they have constantly shoved Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and many other unfavorable candidates on us, that we are throwing up because we are sick of the establishment. When a person like Donald Trump can get the nomination without having any real solutions to the problems and is only playing into the discontent and anger of voters, this illustrates that our system is beyond fragmented. More importantly, it shows how weak the national party is to allow an egomaniac like Trump to rise, however, they allowed Sara Palin to become popular as well, so…

Both parties are responsible for killing America’s democracy, it is both parties that have failed their duties as representatives to REPRESENT WE THE PEOPLE, it is both parties that have allowed the media to provide misleading, inaccurate information to the people when the duty of the media is to keep the people informed. Not only that, it is both parties that have failed for a long time to focus on the needs of the people. “It is not a good idea for a democratic government to ignore the needs of the middle class and hard workers trying to get into the middle class for long periods of time” William Glaston.

Additionally, it is not a good idea for a democratic government to allow voters to be disenfranchise and it is not a good idea for a democratic government to ignore candidates like Bernie Sanders who we need in order to get America back on track. America democracy is dead because this two party system has become polarized and self-interest took over instead of the needs for the people.
