Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Oh the US system is a nightmare, no question about it. Largely because it was developed by a bunch of wealthy, idealistic aristocrats living in a pre-industrial agricultural economy. And they made the system hard to change.

On the other hand, we have managed to hold it together for 230 years so far, which is not too bad.
