2187. Our perception of the US.

How did we get a Democratic party that was aligned with the bankers and lead to Donald Trump?  What do we do about slavery, race, native americas, the dominance of consumerism over citizenship? Let’s face it, the country we grew up believing in has fragmented,  “An aged man is but a paltry thing, a tattered coat upon a stick.” Yeats, who also wrote the so often quoted “The center cannot hold, mere anarchy is loosed upon the land.”  The founding fathers wanted checks and balances so that not much could happen, especially threats to private property. And they succeeded, so we can’t change through any normal process.
