"Israeli democracy, like American democracy, is like a jumbo jet with multiple engines, backups and fail-safe systems, than the kind of single engine populist touches displayed in Morsi's Egypt. Functioning democracies combine widespread popular legitimacy with a vigorous culture of criticism, resulting in tremendous structural stability buttressed by the true genius of a working democracy, overlapping self-corrective mechanisms."
"Two of Obama's favorite pet constituencies, however, would seem to be the WEF (World Economic Forum) and the globalist aristocrats - after all he is their Frankenstein's monster! And it's become clear as day, that the sham of American democracy, is like a casino game that's rigged six ways to Sunday! The two figureheads of the two corporatist behemoths, sling barbs, and invective back and forth at one another, and shovel multi-millions into propaganda spots that would have made Goebbels chuckle! "
"American democracy is like a restaurant with only two items on the menu, and no matter which one you order, ass or pachyderm, you're served a toxic and bloody mess. Dissatisfied, you must wait four years to order again, only to receive, once more, a toxic and bloody mess. Bon appetit!"
"As I have said before. American Democracy is like Marily Monroe, all Glitz and glamour, Platex support Bra's and Panty Girdles, but strip it down and all you've got is an Obese Junkie that everybody wants to sleep with, but nobody wants to Marry."
"I guess in some ways American democracy is like the state of New
Jersey - most of it is something to be really proud of, but there are times on the turnpike when you absolutely have to hold your nose."
