    political decisions in the US? Like most of today's democracies, we almost never have democratic outcomes. And never when it's about war and economics.

      the people don't get to tell congress or senate what we can afford as far as healthcare goes, they tell is what we can afford and we will be punished financially if we can afford it.  The people don't get to make decisions about the tremendous debt we are going into for the wars.  The people don't get to decision about their own family planning or birth control, the government tell you what you can and can't do.

      The people didn't want to bail out the banks, but we were ignored and they did it anyway.  But, then come to find it wasn't just the banks, but the whole freaking world we were helping bail out.  But, don't worry the people will tighten their belts.

      The people wanted the wealthy to pay a fair tax rate and the corporations too, but forget that we wouldn't want to upset the wealthy.  

      The people are getting to a tipping point and the policiticans have their heads up their beloved behinds.
