Together, these three links indicate that Americans are extraordinarily unsatisfied with both their elected legislators and generally at best mildly satisfied with their elected Commander in Chief. Even in the best of times, no greater than three quarters of Americans are satisfied with their president at any given time, and usually the approval rating hovers around 50%. More importantly however, it seems that the vaunted constitutions and laws of the United States have failed to protect its status as a democratic republic, according to the third link.
So why do Americans focus so much of their vitriol towards supposedly ‘oppressive’ regimes that probably have much higher approval ratings? Perhaps the American stance would be better perceived if they were at least happy with their system themselves (a much more convincing argument would be if their system actually works the way it should, which it doesn’t).
