One of the many lies parroted by news organizations is that partisan bickering has kept Washington from ‘getting things done’ — when in fact the status quo, that is undermining America and the world, is highly bi-partisan and getting truly bad things done (see neocons & humanitarian interventionists in action).

The checks and balances built into the democratic government of the U.S. have not kept it from becoming malevolent, nor have they made it self-correcting.
