|Sujet: The falsehood of a democratic government in the U.S.A. Ven 22 Fév 2013 - 10:34|| |
Last night I was watching the Reverend Al Sharpton's show on MSNBC; He was talking about the opposition of the Republican party to all the initiatives(Gun control, Immigration reform, increase of the minimum wage,health care reform etc ) of the President of the United States and I asked myself this question:Do we really have a government of the people ,by the people and for the people in the United States?
When and where it costs millions and millions of dollars to elect a President ,and the members of Congress who most of the time are patronized by the rich;when some members of Congress who are making more than 174.000 dollars annually refuse to augment the minimum salary of the majority of the people can we really say they represent the people?Is this really the best form of government?You don't have to be socialist or communist to realize the dysfunctionment of the U.S. government.The President of the United States elected by the majority of the people is incapacitated in his function by a group of republican politicians whose only purpose is to sabotage the presidency of Barack Obama,an african american.
It doesn't matter to them what will be the consequences of this sabotage to the country and to the people.For too long the beneficiairies of this form of government(Executive, legislative and judiciairy)have propagated the virtues of democracy as if it were the panacea to all problems in different countries of the world.They even intervene in the internal affairs of other countries(Haiti, Dominican republic, Vietnam, iraq etc ) in the name of democracy; whereas in their own country this form of government is dysfunctional for a long time.How could they teach other people how to govern their countries when they can not govern theirs?
It is time for americans to put their house in order first before telling other people how to govern their own countries.One doesn't neeed a PHD in political science to understand the falsehood of this so called democratic government.Should all the countries of the world imitate this form of government?I don't think so.Yes the United States is perharps the richest country of the world and the most stable but for how long?Are we witnessing the decline of the Empire?why can the american politicians put their heads together to solve the problems of their country?Who are the real beneficiairies of their inactions?The chinese and the Russians must be laughing when they hear how some american politicians are sabotaging their own country to make the presidency of Barack Obama a failure.
Last week I read a report where the author said that the United states is no longer first in manufacturing.We know for a long time now that the United states is classified far behind the scandinavian countries in education, helath care, quality of life in general.Given all these statistics should the politicians in the Congress perpetuate this sabotage of their own country because a black man is president?I know some people would like me to believe this is the way democracy supposed to work;this is what they called balance of power between the executive and the legislative branches of government.If this dysfunctional government is the best that we have then we should not be surprised if our environment is deteriorating to the point that the lives of our people is in danger in all the coastal cities of the country.Who could forget the refusal of the Congress to send help to the victims of hurricane Sandy in the Northeast because New york and New jersey are blue states?
I wrote a similar piece before and someone asked the following question.Are you proposing a dictatorship in the United States?No, I am not proposing any dicatatorship of any ideology or party in the United States.It is up to the americans to decide if this form of government is really the best for them.I am just observing the dysfunctional of the U.S. so called democracy.
