You know your elections are circuses, don't you?

Alan Greenspan once stated to the effect that ...

That's the impact of free and open media. China's government would never allow that to happen. Hence it's exactly why the Chinese government is taking ads out in the US Soy Farmer territory. Trying to sway public opinion. Saying how bad the tariffs are. However, the farmers are staying the course.

Again that's something that would never happen in China. Why? Because the government controls the media.

Because people like to watch circuses, doesn't mean everybody has to be part of it.
Believe it or not, it's true.

You're right. The USA is an oligarchy just like all other countries.
Who wouldn't believe for a se ...

I certainly credit you Marxists for understanding and focusing on the problem of capitalist plutocratic power! The liberal progressives conceded too much to the plutocrats and the proletariate has lost faith in liberal democracy. Liberals focused too much on global warming, sexual equality and the rights of minorities. On everything except subjecting the plutocrats to the power of the state. The time has come to investigate the crimes of the plutocrats and administer such heavy punishments that the workers will feel satisfied by their terror!
My problem is simple: I just know better than everyone-else!

The so-called democracy in the US is a mirage!  How can there be true democracy when the system is hijacked by powerful lobbyists and rich organisations and individuals?  Even the Presidency is not free of such money politics.  Trump shamelessly refused to initiate gun control measures despite numerous gun masacres, because he is beholden to the National Rifles Association (NRA) which supported him with donations running into millions of dollars!

I find myself in total agreement with Robert's contention that the US Constitution is too anti-majority, too focused on the powers of the states, and strengthens the powers of local elites in those states while not meeting the needs of the majority of citizens. It is not compatible with modern realities. His Marxist ANALYSES of the class struggle are often very correct. I don't support SOME of his Marxist SOLUTIONS - but I do support OTHERS. I would add, though, some PRAISE for the US mass media - which has been fighting a pretty-good battle against Trump and the extreme right. And point-out that Americans speak-out freely against Trump and are not imprisoned for that.

The Press in the US plays a very important role in checking and exposing the misdeeds of the current occupant of the White House, who is a documented liar, a racist, a women groper etc etc!
