The two political parties carry on with their own agendas to sustain their existence buoyed by corporate money. It is one big inefficient bureaucracy, not democracy. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

And did anyone ask the Islamic people if they wanted democracy? If it will work with an extremely religious populace that naturally elects a theocracy?
That explains our dominance of France, Germany, Japan, South Korea, etc... When De Gaulle demanded US troops leave France, what happened? We left.

Never in the history of the world has a nation had such overwhelming economic and military dominance and not used it for its own expansion.
