That's what I think of our political system, the primaries, the general election, etc.: it's all bread and circuses. The United States is not a democracy. How can you have a democracy when there are such inequalities of wealth and power in evidence? Corporations own the mass media and manipulate what the public sees and hears. No real reform politican could ever get to first base because the powerful monied interests would prevent it. Finally, the Amercian populace is purposely kept in an uneducated stupor while being fed popular culture junk food day in and day out. To this we've come.
