FDA Electoral Fairness Report on the United States revised as of April 11, 2013.
The American federal electoral system borders a failed state as determined by the overall unsatisfactory audit score of 54.5 percent (out of 100 percent). The FDA auditors measured
- two failing scores for legislation pertaining to electoral finance (48.25 percent) and media election content (42.5 percent);
- one unsatisfactory score for legislation pertaining to candidates and parties (57 percent);
- one satisfactory score for legislation pertaining to voters (70.25 percent).
The FDA recommends that the public get involved with the government legislative process and implementation if they want to protect and advance their democratic voice, and create a society of their choosing.
"If liberty and equality, as is thought by some, are chiefly to be found in democracy, they will be best attained when all persons alike share in government to the utmost.”
