The systems in this country are broken.
Our method of electing officials is badly broken. It is open to manipulation, suppression of minorities, suppression of felons who have paid their dues, handling and counting of ballots, and many others.
Our healthcare system is badly broken, and the Republicans are doing all they can to stop a system where everyone is covered, all in the name of more money for them.
Now we have an acting Attorney General with dubious credentials and an illegal appointment , passing judgement on others and placed there for the sole reason of protecting dump. We are possibly on the road to recovery, but there has been a lot of damage already and it's not January yet.
The lame-duck session will be all-out war on the principles we hold dear, so be prepared for the worst and hope for the best.
Between the major corporations, the military-industrial complex, Big Pharma, Congress and Republican lawmakers, you don't stand a chance, yet some of you will never learn. You keep electing the same idiots to the Senate. At least we regained the House and some semblance of being able to slow this hell down!
But we are nowhere near having it under control, until some of these people start getting their indictments and convictions. Then we may be able to take a deep breath and feel a bit more comfortable. Until then, I don't feel very confident.
May peace be with you!
