It looks as if the US political apparatus of checks and balance has reach its limits: it is now more checks that balance. Democrats and Republicans hate each other's guts and are more inclined to make obstacles for the other side than make decisions for the good of the nation. What we have witnessed in the past two years is a demonstration of impotency of this government. It is unable to do anything and a change of government won't help. It is the system that makes these people impotent. Psychotic? Well, anyone would be in that sort of predicament.
