    "Most people, including most Americans, would be surprised to learn that the word “democracy” does not appear in the Declaration of Independence (1776) or the Constitution of the United States of America (1789)."

    "The founding father thought [political parties] were bad, or at least, they did before they started some." Living for factually correct shade.

    @just plain_name Grants "Freedom of Religion" yet only branches of Christianity received support. Calls "all men equal" yet did nothing about legal discrimination and deliberately excluded women.Inexplicably cuts America into states even though it's one country. Each state gets two Senators and thus two votes regardless of population size.Impeachment inexplicably can't punish past removal of office no matter how awful the crime.And that's just from the first three sections

    Don't kid yourselves. A nation with only two parties cannot be democratic.

    There are more the parties, yet some are just shoved aside by huge corporations and many supporters of main stream parties.

    Face it America needs a multiparty Parliamentary System. With a cap of any corporate donations or any donation from rich wealthy people. One time donation cap. The rest will be publicly funded.
