The voting system is democratic by definition. The political system is less so. It would be better if the popular sources of information weren't all controlled by commerce.

CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC are all ratings driven, they cover the process as if it were a horse race rather than a way to set our goals and priorities for the next four years.

Fox, claiming the "conservative", "America love it or leave it" audience for itsself panders to that point of view.

PBS is careful not to offend its donors, people of means and big corporation.

Look at all of the commercials from lobbyists like ADM on the Sunday morning political shows. Why is there subsidized corn in nearly every processed food you can buy in this country?

Politics in this country is using large amounts of money to obatin obscenely large amounts of money.
