When did Congress become so useless? For many years before current times, Congress spoke with a forked tongue in public. In the interior halls, various members no matter the party met and discussed legislature that actually benefitted their constituents- ALL constituents! Now we have 535 moops who have no direction other than party lines no matter the harm to their constituents. By supporting an inept President for the sake of the party they have essentially defied the basis of the Constitution which protects us all. Consider that this Congress again along party lines has used TOTUS as a cover for their own gains in the courts which will no longer be the neutral arbiters of justice that they are seated to do. These Judges will shape our courts on a conservative basis which could essentially negate the separation of church and state. It will take years to correct the balance of our courts and correct the foreign relations nightmare foisted on us by this administration. Forget about the poorly conceived impeachment hearings which only served to show how self-serving our Congress really is. We have only witnessed months of infighting and tweet administration to no good purpose (our money not well spent!). Voters need to defect from party lines and determine the truth from several sources.

Henry Louis Mencken was a 20th-century journalist who wrote for the Baltimore Sun newspaper. There was a quote attributed to him which was brought to my attention:
Mencken wrote as follows about the difficulties of good men reaching national office when such campaigns must necessarily be conducted remotely:
The larger the mob, the harder the test. In small areas, before small electorates, a first-rate man occasionally fights his way through, carrying even the mob with him by force of his personality. But when the field is nationwide, and the fight must be waged chiefly at second and third hand, and the force of personality cannot so readily make itself felt, then all the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre — the man who can most easily adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum.
“The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.^ Mencken, Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920.”
We are now at that time when this prediction has become real.
