American “democracy”

They’re not even bothering to fake it anymore:

While voting on a motion to recommit for the agricultural appropriations legislation, the presiding chair (who is a Democrat member) gaveled the vote closed. The tally was clear and the vote was over. The Republicans had won. Then, realizing what had happened – the Dems allowed just their people to keep voting to change the result. Let’s be clear, this wasn’t holding the vote open – they change the results of a vote that was legally declared over.

As you know, American democracy is not democracy, it is a tightly controlled system designed to give the appearance of democracy without actually allowing the people to control anything. In this light, I find it amusing that we’re supposed to be outraged by the Democratic disinterest in even playing along with the charade.
