^ All US politicians have viewed our citizenry as commodities since about the the late 40's and possibly even before, corporate interests run this country and dictate policy, not individuals. It's sad but true. On the other hand I can't see living anywhere else except possibly New Zealand, seems pretty cool there, but I'm too old and cranky to uproot myself. Until the chump was elected, whomever held the presidency made very little difference to my life, and even when he was in office my personal life changed very little, but to listen to his rantings and attempts to undermine or sue his way around the system we have made me sick, he is CLEARLY mentally ill, and that is for more dangerous to this country than corrupt. Biden was the first democratic presidential vote I ever cast, and I hope it may be the last, but I see no sane (comparatively) republican candidates in the offing, so maybe it will not be? (did a write in on the Hilary vs. trump election). WE the people have the power to remove anyone from office in this country if we could put down the bong/x-box controller/smart phone long enough to VOTE, at least the Democrats try and appease the masses, while the Republicans count on apathy and only the rich voting to hold power. The dam WILL break, I only hope it holds out until I'm gone.
