Today's US citizens are angry, but do not know why. I say the anger flows out of frustration over their perceived impotence about our current sitting politicians. The solution is known - vote all the Senators out after one term (6 years) and all the Representatives after two terms (4 years); but we are fearful of doing that. So we just keep the status quo.
A definition of insanity is doing the same thing over again and expecting different results.
I suspect that a laborer a farmer or a small business ower could a better, unfettered job.
