This is an interesting topic of discussion, but it's the wrong topic of discussion. Because the key problem is not who (or what) runs the country - the problem is who the country runs for; and that's the corporations and the plutocrats, not the people. So even if we were to have some kind of AI running the show, under the current system of absolute corruption it would simply be programmed by the loathsome drecks of humanity now controlling our nation and most of the developed and developing world, to more efficiently funnel all of the money in the economy into the hands of the plutocrats and the corporations. And suddenly instead of being 50-100 years from an Orwellian neofeudal dark age, an AI would take us there in maybe 10-20 years. And this core problem - the complete corporate capture of our nation - cannot be solved by voting, because our entire nation from the political parties to every major "news" outlet here (and most places abroad) are now owned and controlled by corporate America and the plutocrats it serves. The corruption is so pervasive and deeply entrenched at this point that frankly it's hard to imagine anything short of a global extinction event putting an end to it.
