Well, I just lived in hospital for 15 months, had 256 chemo treatments, and spent 19 months on a drug that costs $25,000 USD per week ($2062500.00), for free.

That's what Australia is like.

We have our issues, but they are minor. The sun is dangerous. Especially since the early 80's. The summers are hot. Winters vary depending upon where one is. Fantastic cuisine, clean air for the most part. We suffer many droughts..

However our beaches are nice.

Ever lived in burned-out rubble? No? I thought not. Putting T.rump into emergency reaction mode is a very bad idea.

abaris,

The deep problem is that democracy and the constitution are the only firewalls that stand in Trump's and the Republican's way.

There is a reason that the Republicans are not called democrats. Trump has been very astute to realise that the path to autocracy lies through the GOP.

I don't want the shit to hit the fan because I don't want my virtual American friends to suffer for the mistakes of their fellow countrymen.

No it doesn't. American democracy is fucking terrible. It's by far the worst example of 'democracy' in the OECD. By far.

That's mainly because of their supreme court decisions of corporations being entitled to excercise their 1st amendment rights, or something like that. That turned it into a bribocracy where representatives answer to their donors rather than their electorate.

But I feel like America is only one or two steps ahead in turning democracy into a travesty. The lobbyists are pretty active in other parts of the world also.

The underlying concept is good. The autonomous state concept is great. The first amendment is great.

But overall it has failed to change fast enough with the times. We are stuck with outdated meaningless and demonstrably useless rituals like the electoral college; and that wont be fixed because it has served one party against all expectations of how it was supposed to work. 2 of the last 3 presidents have gotten into office after losing the popular vote.

The imperial presidency should probably be removed or cut down a notch in favor of a parliamentary system at the Federal level. It is virtually impossible to fix it once you have elected a ticket made up of jerks. A Presidential campaign should last no more than a few weeks, maybe three months at most.
