The genius of America is that it was set up as a representative government, but increasingly, Americans are ruled over by leaders who are unelected, and very … .

  1. The problem lies to the American system itself, created by the Founding Fathers. Its good that they don't trust direct democracy because they were moderates unlike radical Jacobins and they don't want to end up in anarchy like the French First Republic, that's why US have Electoral College to prevent "tyranny of majority" plus they didn't abolish slavery early. The problem here was that, the Founding Fathers also mistrusted parliamentary democracy. What is the form of government of US? Federal presidential constitutional republic right? After the Americans elect their president, the president will be the one who will appoint heads of different agencies and departments such as Defense, State, Treasury, Attorney-general, etc. And on that point, its already unelected bureaucrats right? Whereas in the British Westminster system, every position in government from prime minister to minister of every ministry is hold by a Member of Parliament (MP), a MP is always elected by his constituency, they are just like congressmen in US House of Representatives but they can also be head of a department under the executive branch. Thus you have elected bureaucrats in the parliamentary system and not only that, there's also a shadow cabinet from the opposition party of elected bureaucrats as well that will act as check and balance. Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and UK have similar government performance like the US and sometimes they even outperform the US itself, US is flawed democracy while the other four countries are full democracies according to Democracy Index. Similar Human Development Index, Corruption Perceptions Index, Ease of Doing Business Index, Quality of Life Index, etc.

  2. They call them "regulations" but they are really laws passed by bureaucrats who have not been elected by anybody. If you don't do as they say, sooner or later they will send in the men with the guns and lock you up. Sure seems like a law to me.

  3. In the courts? They already have presidents to dismiss your case out of hand,.. centralized socialized government has been the law of the land for 100 years…. And it only gets worse…. It's what we deserve for killing millions of babies… Judgment Day is coming for the nation….

  4. You are so right! I'd like to suggest there are other "royal" powers welding their will upon us: big business is not Capitalism it is a betrayal of goodwill after it enjoyed tax money financing/tax breaks/exploited labor and then it stomps out true capitalism, over charges & under pays the labor it outsources for even more power. Banking industry. Credit Bureaus who rate people on one-sided, incomplete, erroneous information in which the concept of indebtedness is esteemed and saving up to make purchases is penalized. Low wages is never blamed for inability to pay everything in full on time all the time forever. Their ratings determine your livelihood and fairness or injustice. Insurance is another mega power. They decide, not patient or physician. Their policies require a massive devotion of study to have any clue what benefit you may or may not receive. Based upon fear as they drive up costs for everything. Ket us include employers too. Any two-bit moron A-hole can pull the rug from under even the best employees and get away with it. And the legal system… the complete opposite of just and fair. It enforces every bad law put before it and often behaves as if it is doing the right thing as it makes things worse. And finally, the majority. Bullies are everywhere and every age.

  5. When someone says, "the government", it means, "the corporations", and it all becomes clear.

     Corporations now spend about $2.6 billion a year on reported lobbying expenditures—more than the $2 billion we spend to fund the House ($1.18 billion) and Senate ($860 million). It’s a gap that has been widening since corporate lobbying began to regularly exceed the combined House-Senate budget in the early 2000s.  (Lee Drutman, The Atlantic, April 2015)
