Because if you believe what they tell us, that in a democracy it's the people who rule - that would mean the people are the government, so when they're betrayed by the politicians they put in office to represent them, that politician is guilty of treason!

The avg prez, Rep & Dem, only fulfills 20% of their promises, the rest is ignored or they do the complete opposite of what they promised! Yet they keep getting away with stabbing their supporters in the back without any consequences!

It's almost as if the entire system was a sham!

Are people/voters really that stupid? They don't see that they're routinely being lied to? They keep saying, (after being betrayed) 'We'll just vote the bum out!' 'There's a new guy, I really like what he has to say! I'm sure this guy will do right by us!' Then the whole process repeats (stab in the back...). And the sheeple never wise up they're being played for fools.

Re: Why aren't politicians who renege on their campaign promises executed for treason?
i was thinking the other day how in Australia the politicians often say there's some issue they need to solve, like with taxation or the like and it's funny that the politicians always says to the bureaucrats, "I want every idea, no idea is off the table" I wonder why they do that, looking for an excuse to break a core tenant in their party or are they trying to make the bureaucrats look like tards

How are the women in Russia? Are they a pain in the ass to deal with, like in the west?

Logic and politicians don't mix except when it comes to lies and deception. In this system they are used as scapegoats for those calling the shots but escape prosecution for their crimes. It's rotten to the core

 Quoting: Xenophon


Yep, politicians are mere front men for TPTB, who pull the strings from behind the scenes and are the real rulers. They say term limits exist to prevent corruption but really they exist to prevent accountability!

Also, democracy wasn't designed to be a good system, it's what you have left when you get rid of a king. 'We'll rule ourselves'! But the commoners are incapable of that & the 'democracy' quickly gets hijacked by the greedy, unscrupulous money men who use it as a puppet regime & rule from behind the scenes -- against the interests of the people!

Those voted for them, and encouraged their lies at rallies are to blame. The US has freedom of speech, meaning its legal to lie.Of course they will, every time they speak. Its easier to fool idiots than do anything, and unlike here , or most places, they cannot be swiftly removed.

TPTB thought of everything. Dictatorship appears the only way to root it out. It worked for Gaddafi and look what happened to Libya after they took him out. Putin got Russia back on track, remember how bad it was when he took over

At least we can still live as individuals outside their system to a certain extent. A miracle might happen and people will wake up and take them down but seems hardly likely

Yeah, I think the west is doomed to suffer the same fate as Russia & E. Europe did under the bolsheviks. They will have to learn the hard way...
