America's Electoral Charade

Yes, what other society on the face of the earth would be incalcitrant enough to maintain a democratic Republic that represents Apathy.

How can it be that the desperate voice of only 28% of the US voting population....has enough clout to elect someone; legally? It is truly amazing; a person that most of his fellow citizens deem to be unfit, can be lifted up to this power and privilege!

America still worships Its beast and Its flawed Constitution....and now has to pay for the results. The apathetic majority of 45%, who decided the 2016 election...by NOT voting.

Those who think Trump "won" by a "mandate" are deluded....

Until more people actually vote for a candidate than those who stay home, it is essentially NOT an "election"...It is a concession of power to Apathy.

 I have to point this out, because many are blinded by the religion of American nationalism. If this were not so, there would not be such a willingness to keep in tact such a bizarre and failed electoral system.

To deflect attention from this horror, America's talking heads need "trumped" up blame. It could be a person; "Hillary", or a group; "illegal aliens", or a foreign power; "Russia". It couldn't possibly be the failed State of America.
