Indeed. American democracy was killed off by Bust v. Gore and Citizens United v. FEC.
And as for active wars, let’s not forget that the US sells arms to Saudi Arabia, which is trying to kill all Shiites in Yemen. The US is building a done base in Nigeria so it can bomb Boko Haram and anyone unlucky enough to be nearby. We’ve used drones over Somalia almost every week Obama has been in office. And Clinton is going to send in ground forces into Syria while calling Russia an “adversary.”
Trump is all talk. Just watch what Clinton actually does.
