Look at all the countries in the world [below from Wikipedia] who have a bicameral parlimentary form of government. These governments form coalitions and operate on the basis of consensus.
Contrast this to our government that doesn't operate at all, doesn't cooperate in working for the best interests of the American people, and is open to the highest bidder (Citizens United).
So why are we still stuck with something that is over 200 years old? It may have worked fine during the pre-industrial age, but in the modern era it appears to have reached a breaking point (polar opposite, "do nothing" government). Why does the USA arrogantly hang on to such an antiquated system as ours? Could it be that the power-elite like it that way?
