Watching a Sham US Democracy

I care about the environment deeply - though not necessarily agreeing with all the policies of America's Green party or anywhere else for that matter. That said, in making Green Party Presidential candidates Jill Stein and Vice-Presidential candidate Cheri Honkala available to 85% of the US population they deserve to be heard by the electorate they seek to serve.
They appealed to the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) but were denied access to the venue and subsequently arrested while they attempted it. If anything makes clear just how far from a Democracy America really is it is the suppression by Government of a legitimate candidate's voice. By the simple expedient of denying them a platform to speak.
It is shameful, not even a two party state it is a one party state run and financed by the same political and social class.
Seeing all the articles written here about workers rights, pay, jobs, social justice and the selective application of law. I have to say it is futile until you get rid of this one party plutocrat financed system of government. Until you do the good people of America are going to be $h1t upon from a great height forever.
Go for the cause - the rotten Democrat/Republican/Plutocrat fix - not the symptoms.
If you don't get this very simple message soon a democratic solution may not be possible, pity you, pity me, pity a darkened world.
