2016 brought significant changes for some wrong reasons. The ascension of TOTUS to the head of our government was part of an unplanned and possibly unwanted event. The promises of “draining the Swamp”, “Make America Great Again” resonated  and created a backlash to the normal abnormalities of a major election. The poor performance perceived and real of the past administrations are merely cover-up’s of the real government problems which are firmly entrenched in the Congress. These are the folks who can and should have for years  kept America Great. These seat fillers have singlehandedly crushed the American productivity by ignoring the issues that needed work just because of Party politics. The current Resident is just a byproduct of our allowing then to do what they please without our approval since they do their dirty business in the back halls of the Congress. The televised activities are just window dressing. If you have ever looked at C-span, you will notice that it is dull and boringly  hard to watch. Some of you may remember when the idea of cameras in the Congressional chambers was debated with enough back and forth to arouse the public, then subsequently allowed. At that point the real trouble started, the real business went underground ( into the back halls) and we heard about the resolution of these issues after they were decided and  “stamped” with our approval without our approval. This election season demands that we as voters pay close attention to the candidates and ignore the now regularly occurring name calling and false statements that appear so regularly in the media. You might do well to remember what the “Citizens United” judgement has allowed in campaign financing. I have inserted a short explanation of that below:      Citizens United v. FEC

“Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, 558 U.S. 310, is a landmark U.S. constitutional law, campaign finance, and corporate law case dealing with regulation of political campaign spending by organizations. The United States Supreme Court held on January 21, 2010 that the free speech clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution prohibits the government from restricting independent expenditures for communications by nonprofit corporations, for-profit corporations, labor unions, and other associations.”

Simply put this allows organizations to spend millions to elect or keep someone in office.
