I love reading History. I find it more fascinating than most fiction. Although a registered Independent voter, my political and social views lean to a conservative outlook. Both major political parties are, in my opinion, totally bankrupt in ideals and intent. Both pull too far in their respective direction, and all have sold themselves to the highest bidders. A New England Yankee, I have great admiration for the founders of our nation. The early ones, Washington, Adams Jefferson and others put their lives on the line. Add Madison, Franklin and more. We are most fortunate that our Revolution/Rebellion was organized and led by educated, enlightened men (not to forget Abigail and some other uncelebrated women) who thought far into the future, and it took other men like Jackson, Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and FDR to maintain the hopes & dreams of millions. France's Revolution started well, but was taken over by lesser men, and fell into the Reign of Terror, and the Guillotine. Russia suffered Lenin & Trotsky. We were luckier! I cannot get through the day without reading the Comics. Regular comics first, then the Political 'toons. Unemployed for 35 months, I finally landed a good position with a good company! However, now I have less time to comment, (a relief to some) and less time to read other comments. Just typing out my gripes & diatribes gives me a feeling of being a little less helpless, and I feel better having said it. Sometimes I goof. I do like reading other comments: occasionally I learn something.

    Trump should have stood trial for his Jan 6 actions before the year ended. He will never even enter a prison. Just won’t happen.

    I don’t think that today’s Billionaire/Investor class give a rat’s patooie about what their children & grandchildren will have to endure. They want to enjoy their own material wealth TODAY. NO ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS! ELIMINATE THE EPA!

    We humans are only a short hop away from the chimpanzees. We have not evolved much. We only have better tools. (Shovels, hammers, AK47’s)

    There has been uneven influence by the Moneyed Class upon national affairs since the First Continental Congress, but never have they consolidated so much power and influence as they have NOW.

    Agreed; but it will take more than just voting, MUCH more. We will still have millions of angry, unprincipled, unbalanced Magahats prowling around the country, acting on behest of their martyred leader.

    I hope I am not becoming paranoid, but I feel that there is more outside influences, including and especially Putin, finagling, bribing and undermining American society than we may realize. Putin, NKorea, China and the iranian Mullahs would love to see the US be brought down several pegs, even destroyed. And our idiots in DC and Magahat land are making it easy for them.
