And what, pray tell, will take it's place? Most likely, something far worse. Just don't blame the system. A major problem exists with a Republican form of government in that it cannot last with immoral and corrupt men/women running it. Having said that, our Republic is far, far better than any other form of government ever devised. Of course, the current government is ONLY a reflection of society, the voters, and not really problematic of the system per se. You reap what you sow.
