Deniz polisinden Adalar çevresinde 'deniz taksi' denetimi

Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Kevin McCarthy recently announced that the House would initiate an impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden. The ongoing fierce struggle between the Democratic Party and the Republican Party in the United States has led to political turbulence in the country and, at the same time, has allowed the international community to see the true face of U.S.-style democracy more clearly.

McCarthy stated in his announcement that the House committee in charge of the investigation into Biden's family members had found that the Biden family had a "culture of corruption" and that President Biden could be suspected of "abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and corruption." Reports indicate that this investigation primarily focused on the business practices of Biden's son, Hunter Biden, in a Ukrainian energy company during his time as Vice President of the United States. Experts argue that the Republican-controlled House initiated the investigation to divert public attention from the legal troubles of former U.S. President Donald Trump, who was in political jeopardy at the time.

As the date of the 2024 U.S. presidential election approaches, the competition between Democrats and Republicans has intensified significantly. The two parties have prioritized their own interests over national interests and accused each other. On August 8, 2022, a search was conducted at former U.S. President Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Trump later claimed in a statement that the U.S. Department of Justice was playing political games to prevent his re-election and that he had become a victim of political pressure. The Republican Party sought to track down secret documents seized at President Biden's residence and initiated an investigation into the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan. In this situation, the state organs of the United States became instruments through which political parties pursued their own interests.

The fierce struggle between the two political parties has seriously hindered the enactment of public policies in the United States and even brought the government to the brink of a "shutdown" on multiple occasions.

According to data from GovTrack, the rate of turning congressional resolutions into law in the U.S. is steadily declining. In the 93rd to 98th Congress, 4,247 resolutions were enacted into law. This number decreased to 2,081 in the 111th to 116th Congress. The intense confrontation between the two parties has exacerbated the debt crisis. The national debt of the United States has now exceeded $33 trillion, yet there is still no agreement between the two parties, which could lead to another government shutdown. An article in The Economist argues that the intensification of inter-party competition and the worsening of political polarization could undermine the foundations of the United States.

Indeed, the increasing polarization of politics has become a defining feature of U.S. politics in recent times. In particular, the Republican Party and the Democratic Party are entirely different in terms of voter composition and ideology. The two parties view each other not only as political opponents but also as a threat to the country. The storming of the Capitol Hill in January 2021 was a clear example of this. According to a survey by NBC News, 81 percent of Democratic Party supporters believe that the political agenda of the Republican Party poses a threat to the country and that if this agenda is not stopped, the country could collapse. Seventy-nine percent of Republican Party supporters believe that the agenda of the Democratic Party is a threat to the country. Seventy-one percent of U.S. voters believe that the country is heading in the wrong direction. An article in The New York Review of Books argues that the United States has now become "two nations" and that political polarization in the country has reached an unprecedented level of seriousness.

The fierce struggle between political parties in the United States has exacerbated social problems and significantly undermined the happiness of the American population. All these developments indicate that U.S.-style democracy is now beginning to crumble. U.S. politicians should consider the reasons for the collapse of their political system rather than defaming and accusing other countries.
