The Day America Becomes A Democracy (Part One)
Truth be told. Whether you like it or not, America is not a democracy; period. To the American citizens, it is an autocracy. To the rest of the world, with its military bases all over, it is a junta. To the state of the entire human race, with America striking countries that oppose its oppresive rule with no shred or trace of decency just to protect it's own interests; America is a dictator.

Putting a Democratic or Republican president in the White House, really doesn't change a thing. He's part and parcel of the same 1% ruling elite belonging to one club pursuing the same policies to govern the 99% not for the benefit and the well being of the majority of Americans let alone the rest of the world, but themselves and their cronies elsewhere.
Instead of representing the electorate and their constituencies, they bow down to pressure and the influences of money and represent the corporate interests and do the bidding of the corporate world symbolized by the Wall Street. The senate or the congress is therefore reduced to nothing but a circus of puppets or yo-yos dancing on strings pulled by puppet masters in another club house filled with capitalism and its avarice.
It is a government of the people by the people and for the people. Don't mind the structuring; it'd be wrong. If the meaning's wrong too, don't blame the smart student; blame the Civics teachers and Political Philosophy professors who drilled and grilled him. Democracy is therefore a system of government where through the ballot people assume power with the mandate of the majority of the people and govern the people with the interests of the people at heart. Is that what's happening in America?
In a democracy, if you're wise enough, truthful enough and trustworthy enough; even if you're poor, you can be given the responsibility to rule. Isn't The Congress a house of congregation for millionaires and billionaires only? Is any poor somebody in there who can sympathize and empathize with the poor instead of ripping them off and denying them of any meaningul rights to improve the human condition? Thought just as much!
In a democracy, doing as you please and not as you promised and what's expected of you, you don't last. Your term seems to have come to an end fast and wanna stay on but the very same people who put you in power, by the same cast of a ballot and not through the barrel of a gun, elect somebody else and you respect their will and not your own or somebody else's.
If America is a democracy, where do the banks and lobby groups like the Israel lobby come from? And why does America push for regime changes even in democratic states with democratically elected leaders like Iran?
Come to think about it, didn't Bush Junior rule with a court decision because the vote count was too close to call? Can you imagine what'd have happened if that was elsewhere and Bush wasn't America's preferred candidate? Wouldn't America ship in weapons for the opposition and put the government on sanctions to bring down the regime? Remember Palestine and what happened to Gaza after the Palestinians democratically voted for Hamas? Is that what you call democracy?
Lobbying is Corrupting
Truth, justice and all ethical human values need no lobbying. Those who do lobby can only be a corrupting force on a justification mission of their evil. Hasn't the world witnessed enough of the effects of Zionism? It is therefore such a powerful, corrupt group that has taken over the American Government.
America's virtually ruled by Israel. Its laws and foreign policies are formulated in Tel Aviv hence the American government puts Israel first. Americans are second class citizens in their own country. Israel that didn't directly cast the vote has priority over Americans who put them in Congress. The congress therefore respects an Israel prime minister more than its own president. Remember how Obama was imbarassingly treated to please Netanyahu? Could that happen in a democracy?
Charity Begins At Home
While the education and health systems are in shambles just like any other due to the economic strain and self inflicted pain to systematically drain it, and as a result many more Americans are jobless and homeless, American government still finds it fit and right and gives its Chinese borrowed billions of dollars to Israel to bolster its military and those of other dictators who uphold its oppressive, inhumane and war mongering principles.
Whoever believes that charity begins at home and questions the prudence of such financial policies and wars that drain the American economy leaving ordinary Americans with nothing and condemning them to the streets, is frowned upon and labeled as an extremist who should be barred from meaningful political debates. Like Da Brat said, "If you don't know, you better ask somebody, baby." Ron Paul might say something. Is that democracy?
Politics And Lies
Today, it's almost a norm that a politician got to have balls to swing the polls in one's favor with a twist of truth with every swirl of the tongue. Wasn't a tongue meant to be sweet in a kiss? Haven't such lies spilled into families? Don't we have broken homes and our moral values are in total decay? Isn't the state supposed to be the highest ethical institution? Shouldn't humanity hiss a word about this instead of letting it continue?
Going for an election and looking for a truthful politician who'd articulate, represent and safeguard your interests would therefore be as frustrating as trying to find a young man who doesn't have an erection to guard and take good care of your beautiful daughters. There's none. Whoever it is, that you find, will certainly take good care of them.
Politicians dwell, duel and excel in lies. Looking for an honest politician can therefore be more frustrating than looking for a bird that doesn't fly because the biggest of them all, the ostrich; doesn't.
At the end of any political campaign, the biggest liar of them all who has surrounded himself with equally good liars; sounding more plausible than any of the possible rivals, assumes the biggest and highest political office in the land and becomes the state president. Do you remember the "Yes We Can!" and "Change We Can Believe In!" slogans? What happened?
Looking for an honest politician to be president is therefore as frustrating as looking for a good lawyer who isn't a liar because the best and most successful in the eyes of the people in contrast to those of the law, are those that without fail have told the best of lies in court and set criminals free and sent the innocent either to jail or condemned them to the gallows and are now in the grave. Surprisingly, didn't we rave about him? Didn't humanity say he had learnt the ropes and pinned all its hopes on him?
What has happened since an eloquent lawyer became president? Well, haven't you seen the rise of arbitrary arrests of the innocent, peaceful "Occupy protestors" exercising their freedom of expression and association while the criminals are free and getting richer and richer everyday?
Haven't you seen the escalation of the drone attacks on the innocent and defenseless human beings of Afghanistan, Pakistan and Somalia while the real terrorists are in the midst of America and its allies? Is that what you call democracy when there's no respect for international laws and the sacredness of human life?
If that's too critical of one man and rather cynical, then trying to get a truthful president out of a sea of liars is as frustrating as getting into any water looking for a fish that doesn't swim because even the biggest of them all, the whale does. And in the process negates the claim that swimming makes one slim!
Change's therefore more of a matter of one's nature than anything else. Human experience has shown that the bigger the body, the bigger the position you're dying and vying for, the bigger the lie you tell to get in and remain in that office. It is therefore a blatant lie to say voting in itself is a sign of democracy when people get nothing in return except misery.
Voting In America
The act of casting the ballot for one rich man over the other who are both in it for more money, isn't democracy just like sleeping with a harlot who does it for money. Though you both consent and may enjoy doing it, that's casual sex. You seriously can't call it making love. Love brings dignity to both. Democracy is for the love of the people and doing not what strips them of it, but what gives them more dignity.
Is that what the wars are all about, giving people dignity? Do people approve of these wars? Does humanity really benefit from these wars? Are they not a tool to strengthen their dictatorial grip on power to break any resistance and rake in more profits while humanity is seized by feats and lies as a total wreck on political shores and shows hyped with untold defeats? Isn't that clear that war is not a game? They can defeat and kill a human being but can they defeat a human spirit?
"When dictatorship is a stinking fact, the people can no longer just pinch their noses in silence but make noises and act."- D in The Darling's lyrics (War Is Not a Game). What we want is; if there’s any smell at all then it shouldn’t be that of rotten human bodies but the smell of love in the air.
It may take time but the world will never be the same again. Good will eventually triumph over evil and humanity will have the last laugh. Humanity is no longer divided by petty issues of race and religion. We're all united to bring about a just world overflowing with real peace. Good Americans have realized and joined the globe revolution and are ready to overhaul their political system. Wouldn't you agree that the world will only be a better place if it's allowed to see the day America becomes a democracy?
