Humorous satire website but...nails it.

Just thought I would inject a little levity into these times.

Hahahaha,uh, I'll take our current system. As flawed as it is, that ideal would create a logjam that would never break.

Again I point to Italy. A bagillion political parties, everything is compromise and least common denominator.

We don't live in a democracy. We live in a representative republic. There are tons of quotes out there from the founding fathers why a true democracy wouldn't work.
It always sounds good in theory but never in practice. Kind of like socialism and communism.

If "real democracy" came to the U.S., we'd definitely need a revolution. Not much could be worse. Even with a dictatorship, there is a chance of having a competent dictator - with democracy there is no such chance, unless you have pretty strict control over who is part of your population. Most of the problems we have now are the result of leaning too far toward democracy.

No, I didn't think it was funny, either.

Great post, but they could have added not allowing politicians to give themselves extraordinary benefits. For the hours they work, what little they accomplish, the surely don't deserve the healthcare and retirement benefits they've given themselves. Maybe their compensation should be put to a public vote?
