America has pretty much lost it's way as a democracy for some time now, and it's hard to see how they find their way back. FOX news should not have ever been allowed to exist. Money was used to circumnavigate regulations concerning foreign ownership. Money is so much more important than anyone's vote it isn't even funny. When it isn't used to create the laws by buying up politicians, it is used to create fearful, militant messages that have the effect of making the mob a reliably relevant force and the informed citizen powerless.
