    He says (paraphrasing):

    There are people who continue to claim that America is 'exceptional', it's the best thing ever. They also claim that every other form of government than democracy is the worst system ever. Those other systems of government, when the people vote they only get a single candidate, only one choice, of whom to vote for! Terrible and unjust. Clearly, the worst system, ever.

    Because in America, we get 2 choices.

    From worst system to best, and the difference between the two? Two candidates instead of one.

    Highlights your theory that our system is broken. We need one hell of a lot more than just another box on the ballot, to fix what's wrong with our country.
