The population of America has lost its ability to support and maintain a democracy. Our younger citizens are no longer interested in the government. Incumbents are re-elected because voters cannot be bothered to pay attention to new candidates. As a nation we have lost the concept of every American being a citizen and an active participant of the government. The saturation of TV with ads virtually guarantees election.
People get the government they deserve. We now have what we have deserved for 30 years! The nation is lost. Sad but real.
