So, how did we end up with such a screwed up political system in this country? It isn’t just the Electoral College, or the bizarre Republican primaries. We also seem to have the longest political campaigns in the world, and I’m sure we spend more money on these campaigns than anywhere else. And then there is the unexplainable way the media covers these elections — concentrating on the horse race, while almost completely ignoring any real issues.
Is there any possible help for us?
