While I actually somewhat agree <GASP> with Jimmy "the 2nd worst president in history" Carter in his sentiment...The United States has never been a democracy.

One of Germany’s biggest newspapers – Spiegel – reports:

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter … in the wake of the NSA spying scandal criticized the American political system.“America has no functioning democracy,” Carter said Tuesday at a meeting of the “Atlantic Bridge” in Atlanta.

Many other high-level U.S. officials have also warned that the U.S. is no longer a democracy.

Carter also said that the moral authority of of the U.S. has sharply declined due to excessive restriction of civil rights.

And – like many other top American officials – Carter also said that Edward Snowden’s revelations do not harm our national security, but are “useful”.

I agree with our country in decline but I'm shocked a former President thinks we are a democracy!

1) These United States have never been a democracy.
2) How would an ex-President that hasn't been in office in over thirty years possibly know what information Snowden may have?

A statement needs to be added to the list of things sworn to by an incoming President to include shutting the heck up once you're no longer in office. Ex Republican Presidents have no such trouble being Statesmen. Ex democrats can't seem to be Statesmen.
