Yeah, it is really a shitty situation.
Watching from the outside it is sort of funny, but I can understand it must be pretty sickening to live with. And it is not just in DC it is also on state an local levels in many places, plus lets not forget you guys also elect judges, sheriffs, coroners and what not with lets just say mixed results.
I do not think there is such a thing as a perfect democracy, but most are a lot better than what you guys have. Maybe if the dems have all the power come November they will make something happen, only if they improve the system so more people can and will vote and so that every vote also counts equally. Well, then there will never be a red President again and the GOP will never be in majority in either House so a reform better also do something to help create something more than a two party system where the winner takes all.
