    I think the U.S. will continue to be a "representative democracy" for centuries to come; in exactly the same way that the U.K. has continued to be a "monarchy". We have a "Senate" and a "House" and a "Supreme Court" in the same way that they have a "Queen". I don't see that changing.

    We're already for all practical purposes governed by and for the shareholders of multinational corporations; at least 90%. A literal coup; a rewrite of the Constitution, all of that would get people's attention- not just here but worldwide- causing much unrest for little real gain.

    Continuing the Punch & Judy show in Washington D.C. in perpetuity is a small price for the real PTB to pay for our complaceny.
