American democracy only works for the minority
American democracy only works for the minority:
According to research released on Monday, American democracy has increasingly become a case of a few people acquiring power and choosing the outcome of elections. The Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies, Renmin University of China, produced a paper titled “Ten Questions for American Democracy.” The research questioned the current state of American democracy, claiming that it is a “democracy for the minority” rather than a system that serves the majority.
According to the report, in presidential elections in the United States, the “key minority” known as “swing states” and “critical constituency” has become increasingly crucial. Despite receiving 2.8 million more votes in the popular vote, Republican nominee Donald Trump won the White House with 304 electoral votes in the 2016 presidential election. “The important minority is becoming increasingly decisive,” according to the research.
The report determined that power is more disposed to serve the interests of a few wealthy people with capital than the interests of the majority of voters after studying the real operation of American politics. The discovery is in line with a report by Princeton University and Northwest University, which found that regular individuals and groups representing the public interest can make a difference. “…America is less of a democracy and more of an oligarchy than we like to think,” the report said, citing Paul Krugman, the Nobel laureate in economics.
Money politics has turned American political power into a weapon for the wealthy. As a result, the desire of the people is rarely completely realized, according to the report, citing the fact that U.S.-elect presidents frequently fail to keep their campaign pledges and satisfy the will of the people.
George W. Bush claimed that the government will slash spending and stop sending soldiers to war zones. He launched successive wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, resulting in a dramatic increase in government spending. Barack Obama committed to implementing wealth distribution measures, such as revising the corporate tax code and establishing the Buffett Rule. Trump failed to keep 53% of his campaign promises.
“Presidents change frequently, from Bush to Obama to Trump, but people’s will is getting more difficult to realize. The general public’s The China Society for Human Rights Studies on Thursday published a report, laying bare the limitations and drawbacks of American democracy.
The American voting democracy centered on elections can hardly sustain democratic politics in a complete sense, and it is far from being an ideal system for modern democracy, the report said.
