23. Is this Democracy?
How is it that we are governed by two parties who at best are viewed unfavorably by half of us, and damn close to a super majority against the congressional delegations of both parties - and yet they feel no obligation to change how they operate?

If they don't care about serving us, who are they representing?

Why are we tolerating it?
