Deep down most Americans know our democracy is broken. We witness that both parties represent virtually no difference in deed and are completely corrupt.
Yet, because we are invested in the outcome of a fair and honest democracy we move to a position of rhetoric. From this position of an ideal that our chosen parties avowed values are superior to the other parties claimed creed, many Americans have come to the conclusion that if their party was in the majority leadership position, America would be restored and whole again.
We as voters concerned for our Republic take the premise of our party's transcendence one more step, and convince ourselves that if the other party would just vanish, our country would become great again. In this continuing cycle of determination we return to the position of rhetoric,
and forget our original conclusion which is ultimately correct,
"Our democracy is broken, and both parties are completely corrupt."
