Explain to me how America is a democracy when a small group can usurp the laws that benefit the majority citizens?

We can vote for change we are just too stupid. Dems scream “vote for me,abortion”, and gop of screams “vote for me, guns” and the people are like “hurr-durr, okay but we probably should do something about housing and economic inequality and healthcare and college costs, but nope, I’ll vote for someone with no plan to fix the country but they will “protect” abortion/guns”

You know the democratic party has direct actionable bills for all of the things you listed and that the republican party is the one blocking them....... right?

Or are you just too enlightened to notice?

And what are they doing to get that passed? How are they drumming up support from the country to pressure their moderates in congress to support it or at a minimum put them on record for not supporting it.

It’s not like they are doing anything anyways. Wtf they need 50 staffers for if nothing ever gets passed. It’s amazing how closing the carried interest loophole was just dropped with no debate, no pressure put on any one, just “oh darn we can tax our rich donors, guess we will leave it alone”

Corporatism is bipartisan. The sooner people realise that the better.
