Our Illegitimate Electoral System

Russ Feingold’s Op-ed in the Guardian:

Tuesday’s events stem directly from our own illegitimate electoral system, which produced Trump the president. They are the result of voter suppression, dark money in politics, and the esoteric electoral college – all of which serve to silence the American people.

Chalmers Johnson was very clear in Speaking Freely that when America’s democracy is lost to empire it will be impossible to get it back. In Democracy Inc. Sheldon Wolin was unequivocal is saying the US form of government is managed democracy, in his words „inverted totalitarianism.“ Here is Feingold saying the current illegitimate president is the result of our illegitimate electoral system. How does a thinking American citizen act in these circumstances? What is the responsible course to follow?
