Congress Approval Rating Slides Back To All Time Lows; 83% Disapprove

From Gallup: "Ten percent of Americans in August approve of the job Congress is doing, tying last February's reading as the lowest in Gallup's 38-year history of this measure. Eighty-three percent disapprove of the way Congress is doing its job." So what happens when the approval rating hits 0%? Does America automatically revert back to Monarchy (for all you Sid Meier fans out there), and what then? Back to Slavery?
From a furiously capitalist site, where everyone else are 'muppets', and the comments on articles can be rather crude. The bearish apes of finance seem to think they're the top of the misinterpreted and misapplied 'evolutionary' theory, certainly 19th century thinking. I'll bet few have read Darwin, though they like to throw his name about. Dogs chasing their tails...

So why in hell do we keep electing these people? Why can't we find some candidates that are worthy a place in any poll outside of our rigged and somehow sacred two-party system? I've personally come to the conclusion, like them, that the electorate really is severely delusional. Each to his own delusion, I guess.

No question that voters are delusional. Other parties are available, but voters keep voting repub & demo. Recall how Einstein defined "insanity".
