"There's a feeling in the US on the part of many that the way democracy operates today is very different from the system we learned about in school." He said that democracy...was now "more controlled and centralised".... Gore said American politicians were spending their time raising funds at small gatherings and cocktail parties because, "the only thing that matters in American politics now is having enough money to put 30-second commercials on air to persuade the voters to elect or re-elect you." [quoted from an article at Yahoo! News.]The more you study Moonbats, the more familiar their shrieks can sound.
- The reason why democracy operates differently now is that our system was hijacked by socialist economics, disguised as The New Deal during The Great Depression, and The Great Society reforms during LBJ's administration.
- Productive dialogue and constructive debate have been co-opted by liberal anarchist protest tactics and "whiney victim" politics scince the 1960's.
- When Candidates buy ads, it's called "campaigning," which is exactly the same as candidates who bought ads in newspapers and gazettes before our television era. Candidates threw mud at each other just as viciously back then as they do now. Al Gore needs to take a U.S. history class in college.
- The reason why our system feels more centralized and controlled is because of all the socialist big government that's been tacked on to it over the last 60 years.
- Gore whines about political war-chests and big-time fundraising, when his own administration came under fire for fundraising improprieties. Al Gore is in the hip pocket of George Soros, who has committed himself to use his billions to literally BUY our public offices for every Democrat he can stuff into them.
