Has Our Democracy Become A Joke?

See more Paris Hilton videos at Funny or Die

Some questions:
-What do you think our founding fathers would say concerning the current state of our union?
-Is nothing kept from mockery?
-Should our electoral system be revamped?
-Do the youth of our nation take seriously the issues concerning our future? If not, what do you think contributed to this?

I think are electoral system is fine. Your last question addresses the problem. Young people don't take it seriously. Probably because they are not paying taxes and don't have much responsibility.

As that famous quote by Churchhill says (and I will paraphrase) "if you are young and not a liberal you don't have a heart, if you are mature and not a conservative you don't have a brain" sorry if I messed that up, just going off memory.

I agree and yes I am considered "young". But I am VERY patriotic and care about people not caring. They don't know how good they have it.
