Warned? From what I understand of the org design of the US, they pretty much wrote in laws to prevent what's happened. Many escaped europe because of this. The pendulum swings back and forth between oppression and freedom every now and then. At some point it'll come back. It just depends on how bad it gets before it happens.

Gosh, I don't really want to think about how much worse it may have to get for real change to happen.

nothing is going to change...doesnt matter which 'party' has control over whichever part of the government--they really only care about thier own bums and nothing else.
As for the rating being dropped--gee, now perhaps they will see that the rest of the world doesnt really care about their bums..and get a clue. (though highly doubt it).
as I said, nothing will change.

The problem with them caring about nothing but themselves is that lots of politicians have the power to give themselves raises, awesome healthcare, great retirement plans, etc. So when it comes time to cut social programs for the rest of us schmucks, they have no qualms preventing us access to the same benefits they get. It's disgusting.
Their salaries need to get slashed big time, along with their perks, and it needs to be illegal for them to accept any kind of gifts outside of their personal life. Watch how fast things would change then.

The problem with politics is corporate personhood which under the constitution treats corporations as an individual person. Which means that corporations are allowed to contribute money to political campaigns under the right to free speech.
Of course this means that politicians are in the corporations' pockets. We've seen tax cuts to the obscenely rich, tax breaks for corporations, policies that benefit big corporations. Now they're moving on to the EPA (environmental protection agency), because without EPA restrictions they can make more profit.
So politicians aren't doing things for the benefit of it's citizens, they're doing it for themselves and their corporate sponsors.

Someone sent me what is essentially an Internet chain letter about the "Congressional Reform Act of 2011." A sigh of longing escaped my lips before I filed it away.
