The American democracy "is specifically designed to prevent change," says political analyst Rodney Martin.

The US political system is not based on democracy and only benefits the proponents of American hegemony, says a political analyst, noting that American voters are being suppressed by the government in the ongoing race for the White House.

Speaking to Press TV on Friday, former US congressional staffer Rodney Martin noted that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was enjoying unconditional support from the supporters of more wars.

He made the remarks in regards to warnings by Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence, who said Friday that the mainstream media was biased against Clinton’s Republican nominee Donald Trump.

“The level of negative coverage about my running mate in many quarters in the national media has just been overwhelming compared to any negative coverage or frankly the avalanche of scandals coming out of Hillary Clinton’s years as secretary of State,” Pence said.

Martin was not surprised by Pence’s remarks, saying not only the media, but also Zionist lobbies were backing Clinton.

“The American democracy… is specifically designed to prevent change and this is why you see a tremendous arsenal of psychological warfare tactics, downright corrupt tactics, to assure a Hillary Clinton victory in November,” Martin said, emphasizing that his statements would not amount to an endorsement for Trump.

“Let’s understand that the political establishment, the Jewish Zionist neocon establishment that really came of age and revealed themselves in the George W. Bush presidency and then continued to dominate the foreign policy and some domestic policies of Barack Obama are fully behind secretary Clinton because she will change nothing,” the analyst noted.

“The political establishment which includes the military-industrial complex, defense contractors, people that are pro-war, that still have a desire for American hegemony in the world… all of those elements are backing secretary Clinton because she has consistently never saw a war or a conflict or an imposition of American imperialism that she did not approve of,” Martin explained.

Martin said that the US political system “has gone from being a very admirable dream, [to] now something that is being imposed upon the American population and is now used to suppress the American population.”
