Things You Won't/Didn't Hear in the Debate

I only watched, probably, ten minutes of the debate. Within those ten minutes it seemed clear Romney was in control. Looking at the polls this morning, I guess most Americans agree.

Did these topics even get mentioned? I sincerely doubt it. I'm confident everything was either sugarcoated or glossed over, and issues with overriding importance or significance were simply omitted.

The monopoly of power and influence resides within the single corporatist party -- either the Democratic wing or the Republican wing.

America's Sham Electoral Process
"It's bad enough to make some despots blush. It doesn't rise to the level of good fiction. No respectable film producer would accept a script explaining it. Who'd believe a democratic system so implausible. It's more fanciful than real.

"Longstanding electoral fraud alone subverts democracy in America. The entire process lacks legitimacy.

"Most democracies have proportionally representative (PR) governance. America's winner-take-all system lacks credibility. It's borderline lawless.

"PR represents all voters and all political parties or groups proportionally to their electoral strength. Thus, if candidates from one party win 30% of the votes, they get 30% of legislative seats. Not in America. Here, 50.1% takes all."
