We should totally rethink our constitution and the political governance before we implode.

Anonymous, Reston, VA US

Untrue... there are both impeachments and recalls in our laws to allow us to change a government quicker than that. Also, 4 years is not the magic number at all, every member of the House is up every 2 years and in the Senate they get 6 on rolling 2 year schedule... and then there is the Judicial branch where we give them a lifetime... all in all, a totally bogus and unfunny quote.

As humor it gets 5 stars, as accurate it gets thumbs down. The de jure U.S. is not a democracy, not run by its once sovereign(s), and we're not the only nation that has to keep its government. We should reimplement Individual Sovereignty, the Representative Republic, the Constitution -that when adhered to protected the rest and, put to action a more watchful safeguard to stop the government's overthrow by the king Georges of the world.

Follow the Constitution. A democracy becomes a "mobocracy." The U.S. is a Constitutionally Limited Federal REPUBLIC.
