Good ol’ Mark have yet another insightful post related to politcs, voting and the empire.
This is an issue that I’ve been pondering about from an outsider perspective (in spite the fact that Puerto Ricans are US citizens since the approval by the US Congress of the Jones-Shafroth act in 1917). For the most part representative democracy have proven to perpetuate the power of the elite class. Groups that have oppressed through out the history of this country still suffer oppression no matter which one of the two parties wins the election. Foreign policy still the same no matter if the administration is liberal or conservative, people gets murdered, countries invaded and democracies are demolished no matter if those in power are democrats or conservatives.
Where are the real options?
