Over 10 Years Later, George Carlin’s Comments on the American System Are as Haunting as Ever (Video)

George Carlin would have had a field day with the 2016 United States presidential election if he were alive today. The comedian and social critic died on June 22, 2008, but his spirit and wisdom remains eternal.

In this stand-up bit from his 2005 show "Life Is Worth Losing," Carlin explains the way America works and why politicians don't have much power.

Warning: Video contains some profanity.
