I would still support Bernie in 2020. I think it would be cool to see more of what he he was talking about in 2016. But there is a local election coming up next week and I'm just not hearing anything to get excited about, nothing to be interested in, nothing to engage me. I now think that elections are just the "bread and circus" and the strings are all pulled behind the scenes anyway. They don't care who we vote for. Frustrated. Thanks for letting me vent : )

"Americans need to understand that they have lost their country. The rest of the world needs to recognize that Washington is not merely the most complete police state since Stalinism, but also a threat to the entire world. The hubris and arrogance of Washington, combined with Washington’s huge supply of weapons of mass destruction, make Washington the greatest threat that has ever existed to all life on the planet. Washington is the enemy of all humanity" Paul Craig Roberts

"By showing so much, Ocasio-Cortez is completely demystifying the process....

She's bringing everyone in, which, in a representative democracy, is exactly what should be happening, especially at a time when we have the ability to be more transparent than ever before. It's also what's necessary to get young people interested and involved in politics. We don't need to be making the process seem any more complicated than it actually is, and we don't need to scare away perfectly eligible candidates from running because they don't know what they're getting themselves into. What we do need is the Ocasio-Cortezs of the world to continue being open and honest about what it means to serve their communities, and then we need even more history-making young people to join her."
