You are crazy. Here is an example of the democratic process working, yet you desperately have to search for some conspiracy theory to continue your irrational hatred of the USA.
No. It's an example of a republic not working. What history books tend to call "decline and fall" when it's happened in the past. It is what happens when governments completely lose sight of, and concern with, and respect for, the principles that brought them into being.
This is real life, not a Tom Clancy novel.
Oh, we know. In Clancy's works the US TLAs are the good guys. That's not been the case for decades now.
